Golden gloves hopefuls gear up

Big tournament will round out the season for Genesis Boxing

Local boxers are training hard for the upcoming Golden Gloves big event.

The boys at Genesis Boxing climb through the ropes for Round 3 — their final public sparring session/fundraiser leading up to the BC Bronze Gloves Road to Glory Tournament, slated for Oceanside Place May 28, 29th — on Saturday from 2 to 5 p.m.

“The Bronze Gloves is almost upon us and our boys need your support,” says Genesis’ head trainer and Rick Rae, who extends an open invitation to “come on out and cheer on the Genesis fighters sparring — see some great athletes in action, and support the Food Bank and the boxing club competition fees.”

“Our boxers are stepping it up a notch as we head out to the “Road to Glory,” says Rick.

All food donations at the door will go to the local Food Bank. 

Admission is by suggested donation; $10 for adults, $5 children/youths.
