The 5th annual Guns & Hoses charity boxing event is coming up this Saturday night at the Ford Center in downtown Evansville. As always, the event will raise thousands and thousands of dollars for 911 Gives Hope and the local charities that the support.

There are a number of good reasons for you to attend. First of all you're helping an amazing organization (911 Gives Hope)...plus tickets are very affordable, they put on an amazing show, and let's not forget about the actual boxing action. It is intense.

Don't be fooled into thinking this is just some paddy cake exhibition between the cops and firefighters. Not's not the case. These guys take it very seriously, and they train accordingly. This event is a source of great pride for both the Guns and the Hoses. Last year the cops were the overwhelming victor, winning 11 out of 15 fights...and evening the series at 2-2. This year the firefighters definitely want to make a statement and get back that title.

Below is a really well done documentary that follows two of the fighters at this year's Guns & Hoses...one cop and one firefighter. Please take a few minutes to watch...I think it's worth it.
