BOXING CHILDREN IN HAVANA


Rafael Trejo, one of the oldest and most legendary boxing gyms in Havana, is a true championship factory. Of the dozens of Olympic medalists Cuba has produced since the 1970s, many have frequented this place, which Fidel Castro has even visited with Nelson Mandela.


In the open air, caught between two buildings in ruins or almost, the old ring with relaxed strings where pure champions continue to bloom, far from considerations of money or prestige. While one might think that such results require a broken discipline of childhood. a haven of peace, of humanity, is to be discovered, where children have fun, learn, grow and perfect in the midst of the elders, attentive and caring.
