Read the Review, then Read the Book. Brian D'Ambrosio has written an outstanding biography of Marvin Camel a Native American workd Champion from Montana. This book is a must read for all fans of boxing as well as fans of a story about a man who proves that hard work and dedication can lead to success.
In a surprising move, the Tacoma Boxing Club has been told to relocate after 36 years being housed at the Al Davies Boys and Girls Club in Tacoma. The Boys and Girls Club plans to add a second basketball court in the area currently home to the boxing rings. What this means is that the most successful amateur boxing program in the state must find a new home, and soon. You can read the story from the Tacoma News Tribune HERE. If you can help, follow THIS LINK to the club's GoFundMe page and contribute to keeping the successful program alive.
