When Luis Monda told me he  was going to start staging exhibition sparring matches inside of the famed Johnny Tocco’s Boxing Gym in Las Vegas on the first Friday of every month, I knew instantly it had the chance  to be something special.

And so far that has been just the case.

Four shows in and the action has been memorable, from the gym’s blue chip top amateur (soon to be going pro) Jeremy “J Flash” Nichols engaging in a wild one with Keith Hunter from the Mayweather Boxing Club, to fellow standouts Joseph Macedo, Daijon Carter, and others revealing their skills, plus ringside appearances from top pros Sharif Bogere and Lydell Rhodes.

Check below for some of the best images from this past Friday’s show and stay tuned for a FULL report plus highlight videos.
