KO Childhood Cancer event tonight

It's amateur boxing night in Niagara Falls, as a group of local residents put on the gloves for the KO Childhood Cancer event.

The event, that runs tonight at the Scotiabank Convention Centre, features a card of eight matches, in various weight classes, skill levels and divisions.

The boxers have been training under two local Olympians, Mike Strange and Billy Irwin.

Money raised goes to the Canadian Cancer Society and Ronald McDonald House Hamilton.
