Boxing Kings Gym is the product of a team’s vision. Jose Perez, the head coach, and Jorge Rincon, assistant coach, volunteer their time to train each boxer. Most of the current boxers, like Sebastian Alvarez, have been around long to watch the gym grow into what it is today. “When we first started, we didn’t have a ring,” said Perez. “The posts are handmade. Me, another coach and a parent of one of the kids built it. After a while we were finally able to replace the flooring with some padding, covered it up with the mat, taped up the ropes, and now we have our ring.”
