Last night the Haymakers crew made their way down to North Station to check in on the team training at Combat Sports Boston. We caught up with four of the five fighters and they all looked great. The improvement from all of them is remarkable, and they all are chomping at the bit to get in the ring on May 17th at the House of Blues: Buy tickets here. Nick has been a gym rat the past few months and it's really starting to show. He obviously has a lot of power, but we are amazed by how quick and athletic he is. Nick, a former BC Football player is fighting one of his BC teammates, which should bring fireworks on May 17th. To help Nick fight the good fight check out his onlinefundraising page. Max's hard work and dedication have really been paying dividends. Every time we see him he his leaps and bounds ahead of where he was the week before. Check out Max's training album on Facebook, and click here to help Max raise money and awareness for cancer research. My Favorite part about watching Doug work out his the great faces he makes (see photo). Doug is everyone's favorite sparring partner at Combat because he's not too big for the little guys, yet not too small to work with the big guys (see Max and Nick), so he's getting punched by everyone! Luckily Doug is a good sport. If you want to support Doug in his fight against cancer, you can check out his fundraising page. Jamie has been one of our most improved fighters throughout the training process. Last night he was refining some of his combinations and technique, and the attention to detail has paid off for him. If you want to check out some of Jamie's training pics take a look at his training album on Facebook or to donate to Jamie's cause click here.
