Guns & Hoses – A New Evansville Tradition

Ford Center

If you haven’t heard of Guns & Hoses yet, you must be living under a rock… Okay, just so you are clear, Guns & Hoses is a charity boxing match between local police officers and firefighters. This is the best of the best! Last year, a total of $89,537 was donated to local children’s charities.

I was kind of thinking about my favorite boxing movies, and of course Cinderella Man comes to mind. Starring Rusell Crowe, the true story about Jim Braddock – a worn out boxer in the 1930s – showcases the difficulty this man had to overcome in order to feed his family during the Great Depression. It shows that when you are really fighting for something, heart and determination can overcome any opponent.  The police and fire fighters that will be boxing this Saturday will be fighting for kids all over the tri-state area. Backed with a cause like that, these fights are going to be good!

Warning: graphic language and violent scenes.
