Dave Mirra discusses boxing training


In preparation for his EllisMania fight against FMX legend and Metal Mulisha creator Brian Deegan, Dave Mirra has been spending his time in training at Fortune Gym in Hollywood, Calif. In the above video, Dave's sponsor DC Shoes highlights Dave's training regimen at the gym, and captures Dave sparring. I've always known that Dave can throw one of the best no-handed 360s in the business, but it turns out he's also not too bad at throwing punches. And yes, I realize that's a cliche approach to this write-up, but it's a BMX blog and I'm talking about boxing, again.
