Wow. Movie about R. Lord's in Austin!

Wow! I just found out that they are making a documentary about R. Lord's Boxing Gym in Austin.



I boxed here for about 3 months after graduating from UT. Sparred 2 times. Got my butt kicked 2 times. Almost got knocked out 1 time. One of the crazy things about that gym is that it is located in a metal warehouse building and has no A/C; just a box fan near the front door. Needless to say, everyone builds up a healthy sweat in there.



Richard Lord is a mad man. Awesome coach. I remember he used to run between 5-7 miles up and down the ramps at the UT football stadium without ever getting winded.
