Club aims to make city regional fighting power

(Continued)

Boxing in the mill towns has always been a way to bring the local kids in off the streets.

“They have their schools, the Y, the Boys Club and after that not much else,” Hebert said, “so we want to offer a place for anyone to train. If they want to fight, they can come to if they want to commit to the training.’’

ABOUT THE ORGANIZATION

Named the Haverhill Downtown Boxing Club

Located on Locust Street on the fringe of downtown

Philosophy: Get young people off the streets to train and become well rounded
