Boxing in Rutland
Aug 29, 2013 / 1:29 am
I was at the MadKatz Boxing Club Night of Action event last Saturday. I was there to see my son Ryan Van Der Lee vs Justin Lee in the Main Event. I have never seen my son fight before so this was a must see for me.
I also watched all of the fights prior to my son's.
Those young fighters were there to be involved in a sport that they loved.
The fact that they used those particular pics for the story might not have been the best idea. Pics of my son winning his fight might have been more appropriate. But maybe that is just dad talking.
Nose bleeds are just as common in Hockey, Baseball, Football and Soccer. That is all it was! I saw the young fighter several minutes after his fight and he was fine. It was just a nose bleed nothing more.
MadKatz put on an incredible evening of Boxing Action and I believe they should be commended for that. When was the last time the Rutland Centennial Arena had what looked to me to be a sold out event?
