NEW YORK CITY (WABC) – In this episode of Tiempo, a new documentary about the life of late boxing trainer Francisco Mendez.

Producers shot and directed the movie “Everything But Fear” at the height of the coronavirus pandemic.

It explores the rise of the late trainer from his humble beginnings in Mexico until the opening of a premier boxing gym a few blocks from Madison Square Garden in New York City.

The gymnasium welcomed new boxers, amateurs and professionals.
