We want to use boxing as a way to help stop youth violence. Gibbs in conjunction with boxing promoter Damon Feldman is hosting a boxing series Aug. 15 at The Deck in Tinicum, Pa.
“This is mainly to bring the focus on preventing youth violence by means of sports and through boxing and self-defense,” Linder said.
“We’re going to use boxing as a vehicle to drive these children to the gym,” “Let’s put the guns down, pick the gloves up and let’s take it to the gym and not to the street.” Gibbs said.
The event organizers plan to host a raffle drawing to raise donations for the city’s youth initiatives. Linder said any donations received will support the city’s employer-paid internship program, the mayor’s scholarship awards and the Chester Youth Collaborative’s mayoral older youth program. He said the city has not formalized an agreement with the promoters, but will accept any donations raised.
The Stars of Boxing, features eight bouts beginning at 8 p.m. Aug. 15 at The Deck. Tickets cost $40.
