With a maturity uncharacteristic of a twenty year old, Edgar Brito (3-0-1, 2KO) will walk into the ring on February 28th with the weight of his family, fans and two cities on his shoulders. Boxing since he was thirteen years old, Brito takes to heart the time and money his father/trainer Edgar Sr. has spent to advance his son’s boxing career over the years. “He’s spent all of his money helping me to get to this point in my career. He’s my trainer, and my loudest supporter at my fights,” said Brito of his father. As in most father-son/trainer-trainee relationships, it isn’t always sunshine and rainbows. Said Brito, “Sometimes we get along great, and sometimes we want to jump in the ring and beat each other up.”
