This morning we said goodbye to the best man we know. My dad was my best friend and mentor. I will be forever grateful for the memories and times we shared together. May his legacy in the boxing world live on and his compassion for everyone be remembered. I love you, Dad.
Happy New Year!!

Thought we’d post a little how-to on hand wrapping. The method we propose is a basic, over-the-knuckles-only, hand wrap, intended for use in your day-to-day boxing training.
