Keisher "Fire" Mcleod-Wells
I'm fortunate enough to live across the street from one of America's premier boxing establishments, Gleason's Gym. From Jake LaMotta to Muhammad Ali, Gleason's has seen it all... and exactly what comes to mind when you hear the word: "boxing gym". The other day, while wandering around Gleason's looking for a youth boxer for a photograph I wanted to make, I stumbled on to "Fire". It's safe to say that my entire plan changed... instantly. I wasimmediately stuck by her combination of beauty, speed, femininity, and a sprinkling of grit. Many Thanks to the sweet "Fire" Mcleod-Wells, owner Bruce Silverglade, Willy the trainer, as well as my crew, Michel Leroy, Matt Simmons, and "Moo" Herriger for helping out.
