Boxing back as part of Pi-Ume-Sha Days
Another action-packed night of amateur boxing awaits area fans Saturday at Warm Springs Community Center as part of the Pi-Ume-Sha Treaty Days celebration.
Austin Smith, director of the boxing club at Warm Springs, will be hosting teams from the states of Washington, Idaho and Nevada, besides Oregon, he said. He expects there to be 12-15 bouts at varied weights and age-group combinations.
If the entries approach the numbers Smith anticipates, the three minutes rounds for older boxers and two-minute rounds for some of the younger ones should combine to create more than two hours of entertainment for spectators. The event will be an added attraction to the Pi-Ume-Sha Days Rodeo also going on during the weekend at Warm Springs.
Admission for the 5 p.m., June 28, event is $5 for adults.
Doctor Bud Beamer of Madras has been secured as the fight doctor.
