Full episodes of The Pentagon Channel’s 2011 Armed Forces Boxing Championship are available on demand and for download on TPC’s Armed Forces Boxing Page.
The Pentagon Channel captured all the action from this year’s tournament down at Lackland Air Force Base, Texas. The video above is last year’s profile package from the Navy‘s Antonel Cruz-Padilla who is fighting in the 165lb. weight class.
“I want to be a champion; I want to call myself champion,” said Cruz-Padilla. “You have to pace yourself, do the right thing at the right time and eventually you can make it happen.”
You can meet the rest of the Navy’s 2011 boxing team on this VBlog.
Profile packages like this run prior to each fight to introduce the competitors. To see Cruz-Padilla and other military boxers fight it out for the gold, make sure to check out our series and subscribe to the Armed Forces Boxing podcast.
