Chicas Tecate Shoot 2012 Calendar At Gleason's Gym (PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:

They came, they saw, they 'sweat'. They were photographed.

The Chicas Tecate recently completed a boxing-inspired photo shoot for their 2012 calendar. To give the girls tips on a proper boxing stance, how to punch and move around the ring, was Keisher 'Fire' McLeod-Wells, 'The Boxing Diva' and regular at Gleason's Gym, the legendary boxing mecca in Brooklyn, NYC.

Originally located in the Bronx in the 1930's, some of the greatest fighters have trained at Gleason's Gym over the years, including Cassius Clay (Muhammad Ali) in preparation for his world championship battle with Sonny Liston in 1964.

Other big time fighters who've trained at the gym over the years include 'Raging Bull' Jake LaMotta, Roberto 'Manos de Piedra' Duran, and Mike Tyson.

Perhaps, over time, encyclopedic entries about Gleason's Gym will mention the time 'back in 2011 when Chicas Tecate trained for their 2012 calendar' at the gym. Or probably not... But the world will still be able to check out the calendar photos on the Chicas' Facebook page in January 2012.
