LIMA — There will be a USA Amateur Boxing event at 7 p.m. Friday, April 12, at the Bradfield Community Center, 550S. Collett St. Lima.
Doors open at 6 p.m. Pre-sale tickets are available at Southside Gym, 311 E. Market St., Lima. If interested in sponsoring, contact 419-234-0120.
This event helps the grassroots of the sport by giving the youth of our community the opportunity to box in our city. Many kids from the Lima City Schools and outlying communities will be competing and working their way to a National Junior Olympic tournament by gaining experience through these events. These events produced 2018 junior Olympic Champion Taji Breland and we will continue this legacy as Lima gains its foot in an emerging boxing comeback.
