When: Sat., March 19, 12 p.m. 2011
Richmond's Finest is the name of the pugilistic competition happening Saturday, Mar. 19, at the Richmond Auditorium (403 Civic Center Plaza, Richmond). Part of the USA Boxing competition for Northern California, it'll feature a number of weight divisions competing for the right to move on to the Golden Gloves tournament being held in Indiana later this spring. The fight card is a deep one, with seven hours of boxing on the slate. The event is co-sponsored by the Richmond Police Activities League, which offers an after-school program where young fighters are trained in the sweet science; this weekend, they can show off what they learned in lab. Noon, $10-$15; kids under fifteen must be accompanied by a parent. USABoxingNorCal.org.
