sculpted trophies of boxers are classic. They can rival other major
trophies that I have had the privilege of seeing. When I think of superb
boxing sculptures, I can visualize Steve Harpst's work."

"Steve creates magnificent, life-like figures. I love his work!"
- Jackie Kallen,

"I'm amazed at how real Steve's work looks. I can see a lot of details.
They're great work - really, really good. Someone who's into boxing
would want one of Steve's bronzes. And if they were a fighter, they'd want one
made of themselves."

- Richard Steele,
Boxing Referee, Hall of Fame 2000

"I have a bronze in my home that was given to me years ago ... it's really
beautiful but it is nothing compared to Steve's art."

I know how important it is to have the tight stance in any boxing pose.
Steve really captures these details well."

- Arthur Mercante,

"These sculptures are very appealing. 'The Champion' goes back to the
sport's original days and is very symbolic of boxing."

- Armando Muniz,

"I'm amazed by these bronzes. They just keep getting better. They're a
great thing for the world of boxing, which is often denigrated. This is
wonderful art that portrays boxing in a positive light."

- Rich Marotta,
Fox Sports Network Commentator, Radio Host

"Steve's work sings on camera!"
