Just a short two weeks ago, our local champ Devon Alexander was in town for a press conference, for his fight event “Fight in the Ring Not in the Neighborhoods.” Unfortunately, I was not able to meet up with him due to prior obligations.
However, he did send me his itinerary, and kept me abreasted of what was going on in terms of the activity and marketing surrounding his event, which will also feature another boxing great Roy Jones. In addition to that, Roy went over to Urban KLIFE, 2900 Prairie Ave., in St. Louis, and spoke with the metro area youth.
Because we need more leaders like him to save the ones who want to do right in life. And one conversation from Devon, may have a lasting and very impactful mark on these kids coming up these days.
So, if you are free, and want to have a great time and show your support. Then, bring your family on out to Harris Stowe-State University, today at 5pm. For a great cause, Devon will be hosting his event ‘Fight In the Ring Not in the Neighborhoods’ and catch special guest Roy Jones as well.
