Manchester Boxer Does It Again!!

Local boxer wins again!

Congratulations once again to our reigning boxing champion, Mykquan "Mikey" Williams(14) and his coach Paul Cichon for their win at the Silver Gloves Regional tournament in Oneonta, NY this past weekend.

This accomplished young athlete holds three consecutive world belts, he was the winner in his division at the National PAL tournament 2012, and won the National Silver Gloves tournament for 2012. He will next be traveling to Independence, MO for the 2013 National Silver Gloves tournament on January 30th to defend his title.

Manchester Ring of Champions Society, 52 Main Street, Manchester, CT will be hosting a fundraiser breakfast on Sunday, January 20 10 a.m. - 1 p.m. to raise money to get him to this prestigious event. Please join us in supporting this outstanding young man. Mikey's dream is to represent the United States in the 2016 Olympics. Each tournament gets him one step closer. Help make this dream a reality! Stop by for great food, great people and a great cause!

This is what the town of Manchester should be focusing on, our youth. We should be concerned about helping this young man reach his goal, not on spending money on a building.
