It had been a while since I had linked up with trainer Ismael Salas and his stable of fighters out here in Las Vegas.

Presently running the Salas Boxing Academy, which is inside of the Bones Adams Boxing Gym a few miles West of the strip, Salas is one of the busiest and most dedicated coaches in the game. The Cuban-born Salas trains WBA lightweight champion Jorge Linares, IBF lightweight champion Rances Barthelemy, former featherweight champion Yuriorkis Gamboa, cruiserweight champion Beibut Shumenov, as well as a slew of contenders and upcoming prospects.

Hustle Boss swung through the doors of the gym on Wednesday afternoon and came away with a few photo highlights, seen below.
