Earlier this month the Fort Myers Police Athletic League (PAL) boxers competed in the USA Boxing Florida State Championships and brought back six championship titles and a silver award. Two weeks later the PAL Boxing Academy took 7 boxers and coaching staff to compete in the National Sugar Bert boxing tournament in Kissimmee, Florida and earned another six championship awards and a bronze. Sugar Bert Boxing Promotions, named for the former Golden Gloves boxer, Sugar Bert, hosts thousands of amateur boxers, coaches, and families annually at competitions around the country. The Fort Myers PAL Team and coaches traveled to the event with the help of community sponsors and the FMPD PAL organization that is part of Chief Derrick Diggs Community Engagement Initiative to bring sports programs to young children and teenagers to promote strong character and positive life skills.
