Date: August 8, 2014                                                        PIO Number: 14-8-5


Two young boxers from the Broward Sheriff's Office’s Police Athletic League (PAL) program won top honors at the Ringside World Boxing Tournament earlier this month.

Just six months after winning the National Silver Gloves Tournament held in Missouri, 14-year-old PAL athlete, Jordon Murphy (pictured on the right) does it again. Murphy and 15-year-old PAL boxer D’Angelo Fuentes (pictured on the left) won championship titles at this year’s international boxing tournament.

The Ringside World Boxing Tournament attracted over 1,700 participants from 15 different countries. The event took place at the Independence Events Center in Independence, Missouri. The completion included six rings, seven sessions and over 1,000 bouts.

BSO’s Police Athletic League provides youth an opportunity to stay out of trouble by participating in sports and other activities after school or during the summer. The activities are structured to attract all youth regardless of their previous athletic abilities. PAL's goal is to provide them with activities that build character and self-esteem, foster positive relationships, enhance self-awareness and promote good citizenship. BSO is proud of all of our PAL athletes' hard work and determination and congratulates them on being #1.

All PAL programs are free of charge. All participants must be currently in a school or home schooled. For more information, contact BSO Deputy Butch Santy at (954) 778-0174.
