Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau on Thursday exhibited his sparring skills at a boxing ring in a New York gym. Justin was in New York to attend the meet on Paris Climate-Change Agreement.

The 44-year-old Justin spent almost one hour in the ring at Gleason’s, a boxing gym in Brooklyn, as several media persons and gym enthusiasts looked on. Mohammed Ali, Mike Tyson, and Jake LaMotta had all trained at the same gym. Justin wore a red sleeveless top that exposed the native Haida raven tattoo on his left arm.

Justin sparred with the professional boxer and yesteryear WBA champion Yuri Foreman. “He has got a heavy punch,” said Foreman. “It was great to train him. He is very likable and he has the potential to impact people in his country and around the world very positively,” Foreman added.

On Wednesday, GQ Magazine—a magazine exclusively for men—featured the Canadian PM in the list of ‘Most Stylish Men Alive Right Now’.  The magazine called Justin “a real-life version of a Disney prince” and a “snowboarding John Mayer doppelganger”.
