DPAL, Jungle Boy's Gym Partner Up

Tag teams are more known for wrestling than boxing, but Jungle Boy's Gym and the Duluth Police Activities League are now a tag team as DPAL is supporting the Gym's campaign of 'Boxers Say No to Drugs' and they plan to have some of their officers help in the gym.

Not only do pros train at Jungle's Gym, so do amateurs, many of them kids. The goal for DPAL is to form positive relationships between cops and kids in the community.

"Boxing teaches dedication, hard work and a lot of life skills that these kids lack and that might be do to their home life or whatever it might be and so, boxing gives them an outlet and for us, it is a good partnership because those are the kids that we want reach out to and those are the kids that have had negative interactions with us," says Tom Sewell of DPAL.

"We have the same message that we take to youth. A great opportunity for boxing to grow and for the gym and the youth that come here," says trainer and promoter Zach 'Jungle Boy' Walters.

"They want everybody to be safe and live a healthier lifestyle and that kind of feeds into what our gym does as well. Help everybody be healthier versions of themselves and give them something better to do than the drugs that are in the community or that kind of thing," says pro boxer Al Sands.
