Local boxing trainer Carlos Crespin says the state Silver Gloves tournament — which is expected to bring up to 100 fighters and their entourages to town this weekend — should be just the beginning.
Crespin, whose Valencia Street gym will host the tourney, said he wants to bring more boxing to the Meadow City in the future.
“It’s good for the city,” he said. “It’s good for the local economy. Everybody coming in stays in town and spends money at the local businesses.”
