Nestled in the city of San Diego among the houses and vivid Mexican-American culture lies the House of Boxing. An ode to the old school inside, the House doesn’t do modern frills fitness; no machines, or walls lined with televisions. The boxing ring sits centered in the gym like a well-placed piece of furniture to highlight the qualities of a room. From beams of wood and steel secured to floors of concrete, the heavy bags hang like reminders of the toll boxing exacts for the feel of its embrace in glory.
