On Saturday, January 28, 2023, the Knowledge Boxing Center in Lexington Park held its tenth live boxing event at the Willows Recreation Center.
The exciting, high-attendance, family-friendly event featured 15 live amateur boxing matches sanctioned by USA Boxing Inc. The match featured eight of his native Southern Maryland athletes pitted against boxers from Baltimore, DC, Delaware and Virginia.
Winners of the child and adult novice matches were awarded trophies for their efforts in the ring. A center belt was awarded. These belts are very special, designed to honor his famous DMV boxing coach Buddy Harrison, who was senselessly murdered outside his SE Washington, D.C. home last September. It was something.
Buddy was a mentor and friend of Knowledge Boxing head coach Darryl and designed the belt to honor his memory. “Buddy takes care of all the young people in the DMV who are at risk, all the homeless people he literally eats and clothes, and all the young boxing coaches like me he selflessly coached. We just wanted to do something for him in return for his great contributions to humanity.Another live boxing show on May 20th. and the winner will be issued a belt again.Buddy spent 10 years in prison, turned his life around and became the winner.Having his face and name on those belts is Good on multiple counts.”
