Shadowboxer of the Month:

Ryan Foley

: Glen Ridge, New Jersey

WHY BOXING: Boxing is the ultimate symphony of movement. It is the truest marriage of sport and art that demands attention to detail and comfort in failure. There is no such thing as perfection in boxing; success comes to only those who find passion in both repetition and competition.

FAVORITE PUNCH: Slip right cross.

WHAT DO YOU DO WHEN YOU'RE NOT BOXING: Drawing, painting and indulging in the rich culture of New York City: comedy shows, concerts and of course the best grub in the world!

WHAT'S YOUR MOTTO: Be passionate. Be optimistic. Be grateful.
