Special “Cops in May Corner” Boxing Show

Black news from Pasadena - Community News - Cops in My Corner boxing showThe Villa-Parke Boxing Program will host its first "Cops in My Corner" Boxing Show featuring competitors from throughout Southern California from noon to 6:00 p.m., Saturday, December 14, 2013, at the Villa-Parke Community Center Gymnasium, 363 E. Villa Street. The boxing series will feature about 20 Olympic-style amateur bouts with male and female competitors ages 8 and older.

The event is open to the public. A voluntary $5 donation is requested in lieu of an admission fee. Children under 12 years old may attend for free.

The event highlights the relationship between the Pasadena Police Department, the Police Athletic League (PAL) and the South Pasadena Police Department, and their long-standing support for the Villa-Parke Boxing Program and our community.

"The Pasadena Police Department's Police Activities League is devoted to reaching our youth through a wide range of athletic and fitness-oriented activities," Pasadena Police Chief Phillip Sanchez said.

Chief Sanchez, an athlete, bicyclist and avid fitness proponent, said the City's boxing program and gymnasium has provided PAL a unique opportunity to enrich the lives of young people at a vulnerable stage in their upbringing.

"PAL gives beginning boxers training classes, which is a fun way for youth to learn the fundamentals of boxing and fitness while being supported by dedicated professionals who emphasize sportsmanship and respect for others. I believe that every kid needs a PAL and a 'Cop in their Corner'," Sanchez said.
