Yvette Raposo interview
Here's an interview my friend, Yvette Raposo, recently did on Toronto Archive Story with Mo Waja.
Yvette is a personal trainer, boxing instructor and ring announcer.
In many ways boxing is still seen as an underground sport, but for Yvette boxing is a way of life. Entering the gym at a young age to test her limits, Yvette soon moved into the world of body building, fitness, and competitive boxing. It was in the pursuit of fitness that Yvette came to understand that boxing is as much in the mind as the body. In boxing Yvette found a passion, and it is this passion that has pushed her to continue to grow the boxing community in Toronto. Discussing Toronto's boxing scene, gentrification, and the world of body building.
