“Boxing saved my life, saved me from being a statistic on the city streets,” says Michael Reyes, the proud Marines Corps veteran and CEO of Reyes Boxing.
“We got things started a few months ago with ‘Down & Dirty’ in Maine. Now we’re in Melrose on October 29, so you can tell we’re serious about spreading the word.
“‘Down & Dirty’ will bring in the next generation of boxers, the up ‘n’ comers, prospects, and contenders from all over the globe.
“However, we’re going to focus hard on New England talent. On October 29 in Melrose, we’ll give talented and hungry boxers a platform to excel. Spread the word, we’re offering quality fights.
“I cannot wait to see our athletes compete and rise up in the sport…and have local boxing fans get right up close for the ride.”
