Ricky Medina sparring in Vegas
Undefeated featherweight sensation, Ricky “El Castigo” Medina (7-0, 6 KOs), spent this past week in Las Vegas, NV, sparring with top-level fighters. Medina shared the ring with Diego Magdaleno (32-3, 13 KOs), as well as other top prospects training in the boxing capital of the world.
“I wanted to experience what it was like to train and spar in Las Vegas,” said Ricky Medina, who resides in San Antonio, TX. “In every gym that we entered, there was either a current or past world champion getting ready to work out. I got to meet Floyd Mayweather and Tank Davis. In addition, got some good tips from Bones Adams and Jorge Capetillo. Sparring with Magdaleno was great work. I can see myself holding training camps out there in the future.”
