Hustle Boss reported earlier this month that decorated trainer Ismael Salas has moved his stable of champions to a new facility, City Athletic Boxing out in West Las Vegas.

During a swing through the gym on Tuesday afternoon we caught up with Salas, as he was putting in some work with one of his star fighters, former IBF junior lightweight champion Rances Barthelemy.

Barthelemy (23-0, 13 KO’s) is coming off of a dominant victory over Antonio DeMarco on June 21, a fight in which he controlled the former titlist from Mexico handily over ten rounds inside of the MGM Grand.

No official word yet on Barthelemy’s return, but Denis Shafikov looks to be next in a shot for the IBF title at 135 pounds.

Check below for more on “Kid Blast” and stay tuned for a video highlight of his workout.
