The FDNY Bravest Boxing team will take on the NYPD Fighting Finest Boxing team at The Battle of the Badges on Friday November 20 at 8 p.m. in the Theater at Madison Square Garden.
The night will feature exciting three-round bouts featuring FDNY members versus NYPD members who will fight to raise funds for a veteran Marine Corporal Gunnery Sergeant injured in the line of duty.
Proceeds from the FDNY Bravest Boxing team event will go to the non-profit organization Building Homes for Heroes in order to help facilitate the building of a home for United States Marine Corporal Gunnery Sergeant Christopher Claude who was injured while serving in Afghanistan. In 2009 Gunnery Sergeant Claude’s team was ambushed by a roadside IED, leaving him with extensive injuries including an above the knee leg amputation, extensive nerve damage, and a traumatic brain injury.
The FDNY Boxing team competes in several amateur boxing matches each year against other Fire and Police Departments. In the past several years, the FDNY Bravest Boxing team has donated over $50,000 to military related charities. Tickets are available through Ticketmaster and through the Madison Square Garden Box Office and website.
