Broner, Mitchell to visit Atlantic City boys and girls club

Fighters Network

Former WBO junior lightweight beltholder Adrien Broner and undefeated heavyweight prospect Seth “Mayhem” Mitchell will make a Wednesday visit to the Atlantic City Boys and Girls Club, one of several in the area that were damaged by Hurricane Sandy, Golden Boy Promotions announced on Tuesday.

Broner will face WBC lightweight beltholder Antonio DeMarco in Saturday’s HBO-televised bout at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, and Mitchell will take on once-beaten Johnathon Banks.

In advance of the show, not only will Golden Boy provide monetary relief by donating $2 for every ticket sold and $1,000 per knockout registered during the nine-fight event, but Golden Boy President Oscar De La Hoya and Caesars Atlantic City will match and add to the much-needed donation for the several ravaged Boys and Girls Clubs which were forced to close, directly impacting under-served youth and their family members in the area.

Golden Boy Promotions will also donate tickets to the Boys and Girls Club of Atlantic City, whose main and satellite buildings suffered extensive damage in the storm.
