Morning Workouts with WBA President: Gilberto Mendoza

Last week, 1on1Knockout had the pleasure of working with the World Boxing Association’s great Gilberto Mendoza (@GilberticoWBA). Gilberto Mendoza has been the President of the WBA since 1982. Based in Panama, Gilberto stopped in the Big Apple for a heart-pounding workout with Kwame and the crew.

Kwame spent the mornings with Gilberto working through a sharp regiment of boxing technique and pad work combined with a cardio and plyo-workout as well. Gilberto was an incredible student of the game, a huge enthusiast and a pleasure to have in the gym. He took a few punches from one of Kwame’s amateur fighters – Alexa Baggio – and even spent some time coaching a few spectators.

He later admitted via twitter that while he is a fitness enthusiast working with Kwame was “simply awesome”. Luckily, it was mutual.
