A Day with Manny Folly

We spent the day with Emmanuel “Manny” Folly. A young up and coming boxer making the jump to the pro ranks in the next few months. Manny is from Kensington, but now resides in North Central Philadelphia. He trains in Kensington and showed us around some of his old stomping grounds.

Nearly everywhere we went someone would yell out to Manny, ask to hold the belt, and ask when he would be fighting next; usually promising to attend the fight.
