Pop's Boxing Gym drew huge crowds to Bedford Park on Wednesday night as it hosted the New York Daily News' Golden Gloves Preliminary bouts in Bronx County. Additionally, I had the opportunity to speak with Ray Farrait, eldest son of the late Pastor Ralph Farrait, about what he thought about tonight's event.
"We have a great turnout, with about 300 people coming in and out tonight. A lot of people come to cheer on their friends, or are waiting for them to start. Sometimes we get 20-30 people coming in at a time to watch a fight. It has been a very busy day for us so far."
So for those who want to take a glimpse at what tonight was about, check out the following link to a video of Round 2 of the fifth fight on the card (Michael Garcia, Gold, Kingsway Boxing Club vs. Joel Lugo, Blue, Morris Park Boxing Club).
