Inside the Sweatbox Brooklyn

Ever since he was young, Argenis Acre had always aspired to be a professional boxer. After leaving Puerto Rico to move to the states, Acre found himself a victim of bullying. With his constant fighting in school, his father enrolled him in a children’s boxing program and by 15 he was ranked number eight nationally. On the road to becoming pro, life got in the way, causing his dreams and sponsorship to fly right out the window. Now, eight years later, Acre is the owner of Sweatbox Brooklyn, a boxing facility in Sunset Park, Brooklyn. With a career in pro boxing still lingering over his head, Acre has big plans for the future.
