Battle of the Badges Boxing Show April 1st at Pechanga

Are you ready boxing fans? It’s time for another action-packed “Battle of the Badges” boxing show at Pechanga. This event will take place Saturday, April 1, beginning at 6 p.m. in the Grand Ballroom of the Pechanga Resort & Casino in Temecula, Calif. Once again, the men and women of law enforcement, fire protection and other public safety agencies will be coming together in support of the Cops 4 Kids & Communities and other charitable organizations. Tickets for the event are priced at $25 for general admission and $35 for ringside seats.


 

Their lively shows feature 30 amateur boxers coming from the local police and fire departments, EMTs, correctional officers plus members of the different branches of our Military. While the combatants may not be household names, they give it their all as if they were fighting for the World Heavyweight Title. With nicknames like “The Brooklyn Bomber,” “Mean Machine,” “Chaos,” “T-Bomb,” “Brown Sugar,” and “The Preacher” you know they take this challenge seriously.

Boxing has been a big part of the Cops 4 Kids & Communities charity. The group has their own youth boxing club and offers many educational, recreational and artistic programs to help empower our underprivileged youth of Southern California. The charity’s motto is, “Let’s reach them before we have to rescue them.” There are countless individuals who donate their time and services to help these children while becoming positive role models for the kids. For the past six years, Pechanga Resort & Casino has been an invaluable asset to this show and much of the success of this event can be attributed to the professionalism and generosity of its members.
