Director Peter Berg punches in at Southie gym
When he’s not busy on the set of “Patriots Day,” the movie about the Boston Marathon bombings, director Peter Berg can be found in the gym. And not on a treadmill. The 54-year-old filmmaker began boxing when he was 14 and he still gets into the ring whenever he gets the chance. Over the weekend, Berg, whose film credits include “Friday Night Lights,” “The Kingdom,” and “Lone Survivor,” put the gloves on at Peter Welch’s Gym in Southie and traded punches with boxing trainer Hector Bermudez, who trains WBA super featherweight champ Javier Fortuna.
