Gian Garrido is a 17-year-old from the Astoria projects in Queens, New York, who wants to be a boxer. A first-generation American citizen whose mother immigrated from Peru and the youngest of three siblings, he sees boxing as his best shot at the American dream.

Gian started training at Church Street Boxing Gym in Manhattan in December of 2014 because he saw boxing as a way to make something of himself. Five months later, he is gearing up for his very first fight.
