What a great Saturday spent in San Antonio, my first official business in SA. Brent Strom from the Houston Astros, excuse me, World Series Champion Houston Astros. He is their Pitching Coach, so listening to some of the gamesmanship inside stories had everyone's full attention. These kids had so much one on one time with him & the other coaches, they were very lucky to know Ryan Murphy (event organizer) & catch this camp in it's infant stages. There's no way it isn't going to be huge, moving forward. So, thanks Tony Chavez of GK Boxing for the invite, looking forward to the next camp!
So, I have all kinds of photos from the USA Men's Boxing Olympic Trials in Reno, NV. It was way back in December 2015. I have made a few pages & groups on Facebook, but I haven't posted all the "Posters" that I have made anywhere yet. Especially, not on my website. These are all for sale at extremely reasonable prices. I am looking to have an online store up where people can just order them straight without having to contact me & arrange price & payment, blablabla. I am going to Colorado & Montana this summer & was going to come home to build the online store to sell some of those photos anyways. So, look for that coming in the future.
But, I really enjoyed this event & making all these posters.
It has been a pretty exciting event so far! Narcizo Cerrato is from Baby Bull Boxing Academy in Houston off of Harrisburg on the eastside. I made a YouTube jumproping video of him a while back. Well, he is now Champion in Houston on his first event at the age of 16. First fight was very high energy & Narcizo simply outlasted his opponent in the first round. It really was set at that point the he simply needed to continue what he was doing to win, he did. The second fight, yesterday (Saturday), Narcizo entered the ring behind the loud chanting of BabyBullBoxing coaches, parents & team members. Narcizo was visible pumped up, mostly because he was able to see the BADASS 20×30 poster that I was able to put together overnight for his pops! Haha. No, he trains superhard & has great work ethic, humble & the best casting of coaches in Houston. Derwin Richards, Bianca Soto, Brian Caldwell, Juan Diaz & Rocky Juarez is always seen dropping him some knowledge in his ear. How can you beat that? Plus, being surrounded by a female Olympian & coach Ginny Fuchs, male & female pros, elite amateurs like Jay Crenshaw & his coach David Martinez.
Parents, get your kids enrolled at Baby Bull Boxing Academy! Even if you have to drive a bit, this is the best kids program for sports in Houston that I can think of!!
Obviously, the poster I gave them didn’t have my logo plastered all over it, but I left the BabyBull there & it looked pretty sweet. The lighting wasn’t very good at all for photography….
Jay had a very disappointing Olympic Trials. That’s life, young man. There were a lot of win streaks that came to an end that week for a lot of fighters. Pick yourself up, you made it there. You will always have that, the rest of your life. There are plenty of wins in your future! I am looking forward to following Jay’s career.
Rocky Juarez told me the other day about Jay, “when Jay is on, I don’t think he could be beat,” “if Jay came to me & said he lost at “his best” I’d ask who it was that beat him, because he is going to be a future world champion.
