2014 Contest

“Untitled”

Six year old Andrew Honohan stands on his tip toes as he tries to hit a speed bag at Peter Welch’s South Boston gym. Welch, a former professional fighter runs his gym for adults, but offers free lessons and training to area youths as a way to “give back” to the community by introducing kids to boxing while hoping to revive an interest in the future of a sport that has been in decline for years. The children’s boxing training culminates in an annual St. Patrick’s Day Boxing Show.
