Meet The Boxing Coach Whose Specialty Is Training "A Bunch Of Fucking Nerds, Wall Street Guys"

Eric Kelly gives boxing lessons at the Church Street Boxing Gym, which is located in New York's Financial District. His credentials speak for themselves: four-time national amateur champion, two-time New York City Golden Gloves champion, alternate for the 2000 U.S. Olympic team, a lazy left eye from "a street altercation" involving a pool stick, etc.

But what sets Kelly apart is the torrent of verbal jabs he routinely tosses at his students, which is some championship-caliber shit-talk. Here's a sampling from the video above, which was done by our good friends over at Animal New York: "A lot of these cats I wish would just forget the address to the gym. You know, everything is not for everybody. You don't see me going to motherfucking Wall Street, picking up a briefcase, and trying to type, do you?"
