The fourth annual Southwest Explosion 4 brought amateur boxers from the ages of 9 to 25, male and female, around New Mexico and west Texas to compete Saturday against the Las Cruces Police Athletic League boxers.
The event took place at the Sammy Burke Youth Boxing Center in Las Cruces, home to the Las Cruces PAL Boxing Club, a program that takes at-risk youth off the streets and teaches them discipline through boxing.
All proceeds went to the Las Cruces PAL Boxing Club. Las Cruces PAL will donate $1 out of every $10 collected from entry fees to the State Local Boxing Committee for future state qualifying events. To view more photos of the event go to Facebook.com/LCPAL.
