Watertown Boxing Club Continues "Quest For Champions"
To help promote its 3rd annual Carmen Basilio Quest For Champions, the Watertown Area Boxing Club's Johnny Pepe came by our studios with "Baby" Joe Mesi, a former heavyweight boxing contender who never lost in 36 professional bouts.
"It's a wonderful sport," Mesi said. "It taught me self-discipline, self-esteem. It gave me confidence."
Doors open for the event at 5 p.m. September 24 at the Fairgrounds Exhibition Hall, with the fights starting at 6 p.m.
Tickets are $10 and $15 and can be purchased at the door or at Kinney Drugs on Coffeen Street and Nelson's Dry Cleaners.
