Tough Gloves amateur boxing
on tap Jan. 14-15
YAKIMA - Got a tough guy in your family? If so, you might
consider a Christmas gift for him or her of a ticket to the Tough Gloves
amateur boxing event at the Yakima Valley SunDome, scheduled for Jan. 14-15.
Discounted advanced tickets are now on sale at the SunDome
box office. Tough Gloves organizers say the special holiday prices are set at
$10 for general admission tickets, which represents a $5 savings.
The knockdown, drag-out boxing matches are expected to
feature 40 men and women from the Yakima Valley, all willing to climb into the
ring to duke it out for trophies and the title, "Toughest in Town."
The doors both nights will open at 7 p.m., with the matches scheduled to start
an hour later.
Organizers say there are still openings for those who want
to compete. Application forms are available by calling 1-888-868-4462.
