The Nevada Black Police Association would like to express our sincere thanks to the WBC for the tickets to the Garcia vs Rios Fight at the Mandalay Bay Arena. It was a special time for us as Police Officers to gather in 1 section and enjoy a sport that we love dearly. We were a rowdy crowd enjoying every moment anticipating a great fight. The arena was filled with excitement and emotions as we cheered on our favorite contender. The boxers gave the spectators a action packed, pound for pound show down.
One of the officers brought his teenage daughter who was not excited to be there but wanted her to have the exposure. At the beginning of the night she was pouting and sitting in a slumped position.
As the night progressed I saw her standing, cheering and coaching the boxers from her seat. After the show she expressed how just sitting in the midst made her a "Boxing Fan." This is a testament that proves when we expose kids to different things it will change their opinions and makes them more diverse.
Thank You for such a great opportunity and including us in your magical night.
