Coaches of the week: Tai McBride and Dwayne Thomas

For Tai McBride and Dwayne Thomas, running a boxing gym is just a small part of what they do. At Diamonds in the Ruff boxing gym in Forestville, Maryland kids can do the unimaginable.

Every year Diamonds in the Ruff teams up with the Belfast Beltway boxing project sending ten kids to Ireland to compete. Kids who might’ve never left the country if it weren't for McBride and Thomas. One name that might stick out is Gervonte Davis of Baltimore who’s now one of the biggest names in boxing.

For Thomas and McBride, seeing boys become men is the real pay check.
