When I swung through the Pound 4 Pound Boxing Gym in Las Vegas earlier this week, I noticed only a few key figures training and lurking inside of the gym.

I didn’t notice at the time, but shadowboxing inside of the Southwest corner of the gym was former WBC USNBC lightweight champion Jesus “Chuy” Gutierrez. Never one to talk too loud, the modest Gutierrez (14-1-1, 4 KO’s) was getting down to work and in his own space.

There is never a shortage of talent when you walk through the doors of the Pound 4 Pound Boxing Gym in Las Vegas.

Trainer Richard Barrientes works closely with some of the best amateur talent in the city and we recently spotted him sharpening the tools of another promising up-and-comer.

Still just 18 year s old, Damien “Sugar” Vasquez has already left an impression during his early run as a professional.

Having turned pro at the age of 16 in August of 2013 down in Cancun, Mexico, Vasquez presently stands at 8-0 with 3 knockouts as a professional. That run included him collecting and defending the NABF junior flyweight belt that he won in just his sixth pro bout.

A few weeks back, when local manager Oscar Vasquez informed me that he had brought in a new prospect, Cuba’s Inocente Fiz, into the Vegas area for training, I knew he would be worth a look.

On Tuesday afternoon I caught up with Fiz inside of the Pound 4 Pound Boxing Gym out here in Las Vegas, as he was in the middle of some intense rounds with top-flight contender Carson Jones. Respected trainer Nonito Donaire Sr. was in Fiz’s corner.

While not as high-profile as some gyms in the area, Pound 4 Pound is still always busy year round while playing host to some top-notch amateur and professional talent in the city.

Been very interesting watching the progression of amateur standout Rahim Gonzales the past few years.

I first caught glimpse of Gonzales, 19, a few years back when he was working with Sharif Rahman inside of the Mayweather Boxing Club and he continues to push himself.

It takes a special kind of person to run a boxing gym and I’ve definitely come to appreciate the people inside of the Pound 4 Pound Gym out here in Las Vegas.

Ran by the Barrientes family, father Richard Sr. and son Richard, the gym has always kept a low key approach while still finding a way to play host to some of the city’s top emerging talents.
