Retired boxer gets paid to verbally abuse Wall Streeters

Eric Kelly can't stand you.

Meet Eric Kelly, a once promising amateur boxer-turned-coach who know loves his job and hates his clients. That’s because Eric Kelly’s clients are “f-ing nerds, Wall Street guys, no coordination, just not athletic people” (his words, not ours).

ANIMAL New York posted a video profile on Kelly and his role as a coach at Church Street Boxing Gym, a place he wishes most of the cats he trains would just forget the address to. After a successful stint in boxing during which he was once an Olympic alternate, Kelly’s left eye was damaged with a pool stick in a fight outside the ring, forcing his career to shift to training.

Kelly has no reservations about telling his tight-laced financier clients who are trying to get in a work out (in vain), that they’re terrible, talentless and a waste of his time. His affliction to one-percenters is actually kind of charming.

“Now you got these pieces of s–t wanting to come here and feel like men at the end of the day… you’s a f-ing wuss,” he says.

Kelly tells it like it is, explaining that not everything is for everyone. He says you don’t see him going to down to Wall Street, picking up a briefcase, trying to type, because that’s not what he does — he beats the s–t out of people.

His story ends with a little spontaneous rhyme:

“Yeah they makin’ money, workin’ on Wall Street,
But in their mouth is where all the balls meet.”
