As Mayor Francis Slay is fond of pointing out, St. Louis is no stranger to the Sweet Science. Our community has long supported amateur boxing programs - such as the Golden Gloves, the City recreation boxing programs, and the Police Athletic League. The programs, in turn, have been important parts of the growing-up experience of thousands of young St. Louisans.
One of the City’s best loved boxing traditions is the annual “Guns N Hoses” tournament, which raises money for the St. Louis Backstoppers. This year, local firefighter and police pugilists will face off in 17 championship bouts on Wednesday, November 26, at Scottrade Center.
The Mayor - and the two chiefs pictured with him - will be there. (See their tickets?)
