It’s been a long, long . . . long time since local fighters have been able to perform in front of home supporters.
Saturday, in front of a sold out crowd at the Nelson Rod and Gun Club the Nelson Boxing Club was able to stage its first fight card in more than 30 years with the Get to the Golden Gloves Fight Night Fundraiser Event.
“This is big for us,” said the main driver behind the Nelson Boxing Club Jesse Pineiro.
