Spotlight! Andre Salonga

This past weekend at the USF Hilltop Cup in San Francisco, Andre Salonga of Double Punches won his fight against Jesus Velasco (Unattached). According to Jovanni Rubio, Double Punches coach, ” It was a good fight. They [Velasco and Salonga] decked it out! Jesus started out very strong in the first round, but Andre was fast and dominated the last two rounds, and won!”

He is one of our boxers who comes in diligently every day, training hard.¬†Andre says, “I am thankful for the coaches at the gym for getting me where I am now.” Here’s to many more victories for this promising young boxer!
