I’m definitely not talking about the amazing movie The Fighter. I’m not talking about an amazing real life boxer either. I’m taking about a 19 year old USA gymnast named John Orozco. He grew up in Bronx NY raised by two amazing Puerto Rican parents that did eveything for him to make his dreams come true.
