The New Year is officially upon us and there are countless people looking towards a big 2016.

The boxing world in particular is tight-knit community and it was refreshing to see so many names and faces staying busy on the first day of 2016.

Also training alongside Garcia is welterweight Olympic qualifier Paul Kroll, seen below in blue and red. We first linked up with Kroll in 2013 at the Oxnard PAL tournament and he is definitely a prospect to watch out for.
