As we reported in a story earlier this month, Downtown Boxing Gym Youth Program has moved from the modest digs it once had on St. Aubin Street into a 27,500-square-foot former bookbinding building that now houses two boxing rings, a training facility, computer lab, study rooms, and executive offices. The official ribbon-cutting takes place tomorrow, 9-11 a.m., Wednesday, Aug. 19, where staff, supporters, and Detroit dignitaries will be on hand. It should be a great opportunity to see how the partnership between Carlos "Coach Khali" Sweeney and Jessica Hauser has paid off. Downtown Boxing Gym Youth Program's new headquarters are at 6445 E. Vernor Hwy., Detroit. For more information, call 313-506-4064.
