LOS ANGELES (Oct. 26, 2018): Olympic gold medalist and 10-time world champion
Oscar De La Hoya presented new, state-of-the-art boxing equipment valued at thousands of dollars today at So Cal Boxing Academy. De La Hoya was joined by dozens of excited youth who gathered together to receive gloves, hand-wraps, mouth guards, headgear and other state-of-the art boxing equipment.
This was the sixth annual boxing equipment giveaway the Oscar De La Hoya Foundation has hosted for after-school youth programs. The Foundation, with the support of its corporate partner of the year California Municipal Finance Authority, donated new, state-of-the-art boxing equipment to a total of seven gyms in Southern California that serve youth in economically disadvantaged communities. The equipment will help these local gyms to provide children and teenagers in their communities with an opportunity to practice the sweet science during their respective after-school programs. Recipients of the Foundation's boxing equipment donations this year include So Cal Boxing Academy, Rounders MMA and Boxing, CM Boxing Stables, Azusa Youth Boxing Club, La Habra Boxing Club, Azteca Boxing Club and Westside Boxing Club.
