Boxing for Charity

Primo Boxing Club Presents “Fight for the Youth”


On Saturday, July 6, the Primo Boxing Club will present the first-ever “Fight for the Youth” charity boxing matches. For almost 30 years, Primo has been working to provide at-risk youth with a safe, constructive, inspiring place to spend time; their “Fight for the Youth” program, which they hope to make into a community tradition, is simply the latest in their efforts to help children and teens during troubled times. The fundraising event — which has 12 fights slated — will give amateur boxers a chance to display the skills they have learned at Primo, and support the gym. Tickets: $25 and up; all proceeds will help to fund Primo Boxing’s “Say Yes to Kids” program. The event takes place Saturday, July 6, 6 p.m., at Page Youth Center, 4540 Hollister Avenue.
