    he did, at a kick boxing place to be left unnamed. then after months of dealing with bs from the owner over money and other things that the owner would basically invent for the sake of drama it was time to go. one of the last straws apparently was when andre ward showed up and walked onto the mats with his shoes on while a class was going on to shadow box in front of a mirror. eduardo asked him to get off the mats while his class was in session and the owner felt that made the kickboxing place look bad. this place we are opening is his own place and as i am helping get it ready i have to say it's going to be a great place. you should come by and check it out.
