    vivero’s is probably the best boxing gym in dallas, gene vivero really cares about his boxers, not only does he teach them how to fight’ he also teaches character. My brother and I both trained at vivero’s and now we se medalrve in the armed forces at tinker air force base in oklahoma’ my brother just came back from afghanistan where he recieved a purple heart, a combat action medal and a achievement medal, we both learned character at an early age at vivero.  I would like to take the time to thank a few people'( at our home gym), gene, edward and abraham’ max’ manuel, and robert’ to my brother and i, you are all champions, ya keep fighting at home and we will take care of the homefront
