Amateur Boxing A Plenty This Weekend!

This will be an exciting weekend for Beltway pro boxing.  However, the amateurs will make their mark this weekend as well with two quality cards.

On Friday, November 13, the PVA All-Stars will be hosting a card at Rosecroft Raceway in Fort Washington, MD.   There are boxers scheduled to compete from all over the east coast.  The starting time for the event is 7:00 and tickets are $20.  For more information, call 202-528-7694.

Then on Saturday, November 14,  it's the first annual John F. Sneed boxing show which will take place at the Mary Virginia  Merrick Center located at 4275 4th Street in Southeast DC.  The card is held in memory of John Sneed, the legendary Beltway boxing coach and trainer who is the grandfather of pro football hall of famer Jonathan Ogden.  There will be live boxing as well as testimonials from noted athletes who were touched by this man.  Tickets are $ 20 for ringside, $15 for floor seats and $10 general admission.  Call 301-919-3412 for details.
Your support of both cards will help raise money to support the Potomac Valley Association of USA Boxing in 2016.
