Romanza Gym: spartan and winning
Visual journey to the mecca of Mexican boxing
Romanza Gym is a boxing Mecca in Mexico City where Hall of Fame trainer Ignacio “Nacho” Beristain has held court since 1992.
Now 80 years old, Nacho has managed more than 30 world champions, including Juan Manuel Marquez who knocked out Manny Pacquiao in what was billed as the Fight of the Decade.
The gym is a spartan space, gritty and stripped down to the essential training equipment. Every morning, professionals and amateurs pack in, filling the small space with the steady slap of speed bags and flurries of sparring.
Some fighters come with dreams of being Nacho’s next start. Others just need a fresh start.
