I had an awesome opportunity back in late August to go document and experience a place I’ve always wanted to go – Upton Boxing Center for Baltimore magazine. It was an awesome opportunity to work with 16 year old, 165lb boxer Lorenzo “Truck” Simpson who recently won his sixth National Silver Gloves Championship and a gold medal at the Junior Boxing Olympics, surpassing Oscar De La Hoya. He’s currently preparing for the 2020 US Olympic Trials as the top ranked 165lb amateur boxer in the country with a 161-2 record.
I’m not a huge boxing fan, but you can tell the way he hits, talks and acts that he’s special. Here’s a few of my favorites from my time with Truck, the coaches and boxers at Upton.
