Waco Boxing Club offering free lessons for kids

Local

A local gym is raising money to help offer free boxing lessons to Central Texas kids.

The Waco Boxing Club is hosting their second annual Gilbert Sanchez Memorial Tournament this weekend. Sanchez founded the gym in 1972.

The two-day tournament puts local amateur and some first-time boxers in the ring. Money raised helps the gym offer free boxing lessons to local kids ages six to 17.

Several teams are already registered, including a team from Australia!

The bouts begin this Saturday and Sunday afternoon, with a $10 entrance fee.
