Nasty Knuckles Presents: "Drop the Gun, Pick Up the Gloves"
In today’s modern world, violence seems to be a recurring solution to altercations among the youth, even resulting in murder. This past weekend Triple-O sponsored a boxing tournament at Nasty Knuckles Boxing in the heart of Rochester. The event is a nationally recognized event which promotes anti-violence and positive resolution methods. The event attracted amateur boxers from Jamestown, NY to Philadelphia, PA. Sports are a powerful tool to harness stress, anxiety, and frustration. Rochester Police Chief Mark Simmons states the warmer weather also plays a role in the increase of violence, especially with the short warm months here in Rochester.
Owner of Nasty Knuckles Boxing Robert Jiles Sr. stated “we've got a lot of things going on in the city, we wanted to get everybody together and have a good time with no issues.” What an honor to have played a small part in making this event such a success.
Here at Triple-O, we don’t just work in this city, this is our home. As a business, we work hard to support great causes like this one all throughout Western NY and beyond. Check out what other local events we support here.
