TAMPA BAY, Fla. – Los Angeles Dodgers first baseman Adrian Gonzalez got to put his passion for boxing to the test on Wednesday when he went toe-to-toe with undefeated champ, Raymond the Mascot.
Before the Dodgers game against Tampa Bay, Rays' mascot, Raymond, brought out some oversized yellow boxing gloves and challenged players to a little sparring session.
Gonzalez, who trains in Freddie Roach's Wild Card Boxing Club in Hollywood, CA in the offseason quickly put on the gloves and showed his jab to Raymond. Gonzalez landed a quick combo, but when Kiké Hernandez tried to get involved, Gonzalez landed the knockout blow, putting Raymond flat on his back.
