Osmar Bravo and Bardia Gharib

Osmar Bravo and Bardia Gharib
Bardia Gharib (the president and founder of Pugilist Boxing Gym in Germany, with an affiliate in Miami) with Osmar Bravo, the first Nicaraguan Olympic boxer since 1992, who started training as a youth with a car tire wrapped around a tree. Osmar grew up in a small town with few advantages, and worked extremely hard to get himself to where he is now. He is a fantastic role model for not only the Nicaraguan youth in this program, but all youth. (view small | med | large | orig)
