Keystone Boxing Sets Up Akinyanju Memorial Fund!

Keystone Boxing, who promoted the last bout that Abodunrin "Big Bo" Akinyanju participated in on March 10, has set up a memorial fund to raise money for his family.  Please click on the link to donate.  One hundred percent of the funds will go to the family.  Thank you!

Well I could guarantee you one thing, I sure the hell wouldn't send my money to some low rent boxing promoter who sets up a memorial fund for a downed fighter. You mean to tell me there isn't a more legitimate fund set up by the family? Boxing promoters are about as crooked as damn lawyers, maybe worse!

Cmon People!

100% of the donations are going to the family. If you think we'd set up a memorial fund so we can pocket the money, you obviously have no clue who we are or what we're about.

Gary himself even donated to this fund. If and when the family sets up another one, this will come down. Until then, we are simply doing whatever we can to help.

Keystone is about the most honest boxing promoter that I've ever had the pleasure of meeting. In my 33 years of dealing with them, I've never once been told something that did not happen. The money, the weights, the length of rounds, the venue, the prices, etc, has always been exactly what they said. You must be one very hateful human being to say that they would steal from a dead mans week old son. The only good thing about your comment is that I know for a fact that you don't even believe what you have wrote. You are just loser with no life at all. That so called low rent promoter you talk about is giving local new comers a chance that they would never, ever get. Plus, he seems to making these young local boxers more money than they have ever seen. I bet his phone is ringing off the hook with request to be on his show. I see on their website that a show is lined up every month until 2014. They must be doing something right!!!

Ross M. pay that bitch no mind! we know you are a good man.

You obviously don't know how we work in this area. Many times promoters have come to the forefront when tragedy has taken place. Ballroom Boxing did it for Bee Scottland, Baltimore Boxing raised money for Mike Dietrich and now Keystone for Bo. These are good people behind these promotions.

Ross is rip-off artist. This is a shame.

Ross has done some underhanded stuff, but I doubt he would steal from this fund.

Babie Girl just told me that profits from her next card will be donated to fund

Ok, but that will be $0 because she ain't making squat except for what she can steal

The only shame is that Gary can't stop anonymous cowards from coming to this blog and trying to bring down good people. At the end of the day, god knows the truth. The coward will continue to live an unhappy life, while Brian and Keystone will continue to keep pro boxing alive in the DC area.

I hope Keystone is sincere about what they are doing and not trying to exploit a tragic situation. Some people have other motives for doing what they do (media coverage for another boxer or boxers). If they cared so much about Akinyanju, why was he not on their.previous show & the upcoming show on next Saturday?? Just be sure that really what you are doing is truly from the heart and not for personal gain. That would be wrong!!!

Gary Digital Williams said...

It could be because Bo was with his wife as she was pregnant and couldn't adequately prepare for boxing at the time.

I really do believe Keystone is VERY sincere about what they are doing.

What I have heard is that he was training and wanted to fight on those shows to make money for the new baby. If he had been scheduled to fight next week he probably would not have been working on that tragic day. No excuses for Keystone, there is probably some guilty feelings in that Keystone group and that's why they are doing that fund raiser.

With alll that being said, he was like a son to Zeke&MsDiana. Prayers go out to them & Bo's family.

These Keystone guys don't really care. If they really cared they would have put a good chunk of their own money in the fund.

Did keystone contribute to fund?

No

This is a nice gesture, but would have been really nice is keystone started the fund with a sizable donation of their own money.

Keystone you are doing a good thing, don't let these clowns get to you. Anyone who knows Gene knows the intentions of the memorial fund are pure.

Gary Digital Williams said...

Actually, Keystone made the FIRST contribution!!

Brian said...

How is raising funds for exploitation?

Anonymous said...

Its exploitation by taking advantage of a tragic situation, setting up a fund and skimming off the top, as you very well know all about Brian, of a fund that only they have access to and records of. Are they willing to release the transactions of the donations raised and where that money is going to?
I don't ever donate money to a non-reputable fund, especially one that is ran by a damn boxing promoter, the biggest con artists of all time.

Brian said...

Well the only thing I can say is someone must have done you wrong; in order for you to think that Keystone or any other entity trying to help a family in need is capable of doing such a thing.

Too bad when anyone who wants to do right for someone and people try to tear them down. Very sad commentary that is.

Mr. Gary,

Keystone Cops only put $100 in the fund to start it off. Such a small amount is evidence of exploitation, isn't it?

I really wish these cowards could get it for defamation of character. Going after people who are trying to help out a family in need is ugly. Have you donated directly to the family or done anything to help? If not shut your mouth you pathetic piece of waste.

People it's nobody but cassandra white she just mad that gene is a better promoter than her, she smells like fish and she is gross, and Gary Williams you just don't know that all them disrespectful comments that's her posting them, why do you think everybody know about her and tells the truth about her wake up man,there's really nothing you can do about it because she don't leave her name, but she smells like a dead fish and y'all know what I mean men, and when u see her look at her in that way she is gross and how about all the money she owes people, she talking bout brain I know brain and I know gene and the whole keystone so why are you lying you not gaining no friends you not proving anything stop go take a bath and try to get that funky fish smell off u, your dying from the inside out, I feel sorry for you Cassandra white, you never going to have know more good luck till you do right by them people that you are crossing get it together bid head and play fair, because all your doing is playing with your life!!!!

Gary Digital Williams said...

You don't leave your name either. What's your excuse?

Anonymous said...

Gary thers no real reason to leave my name because, I'm telling the truth Gary I would not lie she talk bout every body I got her on tape, talking bout all of y'all I just don't know how to send it to you but after you here it you and Gene never going to speck to her again, Gary don't you think that last fight she had didn't you here that this was a fraud for jump , she lied to all them people and told them that the people that was fighting on there was fighting even till the last min when she was still selling tickets lying to them people just to get more tickets sell and make more money, but never planed on having that card the way it was on the flyer, even as we looked on boxing on the beltway you even said that the card was going to have some people on that was not, so Cassandra white talks about keystone being dishonest but look at her, and the damn fights she had on the card was so sorry that why in the hell would you waste your money again, I'm just saying keep it real Gary!!!! I don't work for keystone or even know them, all I know is that when they say that they going to have a fight card everybody that's on the flyer or everybody that they say is going to fight they fight,so it be my choice to buy a ticket or not, not to buy a ticket and then get there and the people I wanted to see fight not even fighting that not fair and it's wrong and it is ageist the law, but that's what happen when (FISH smelling) Cassandra white puts on a show but if she puts on another show I can almost bet the only 35 people will show so she better have it at her house in NE
