The Slaton Boxing Club was around for several years, allowing youth to learn skills they could compete with in tournaments, and use the rest of their lives.
But, according to their coach Danny Aguirre, it also provided another benefit. “It did a lot of good for the kids – we kept them out of the street,” he said.
Aguirre, who was the head coach said Slaton had a boxing team for about eight years, from 2001-08.
And he wants to bring the club back.
