It was a win for boxing youths in the Greater Grand Forks Area.

During intermission of a boxing match, the Red River Valley Motorcyclists in Grand Forks presented a donation of $20,000 in the ring of the Forks Fighters and Youth Athletic Club.  The money is funding the club's travel gym and equipment expenses.

The club mainly involves youth boxing, but they train with some mixed martial arts and professionals.

"It helped us immensely and the kids are really appreciative. And the thing about it is a lot of times there's not a lot for the youth to do and it's another outlet besides hockey or organized sports in school," Ed Obregon with the Forks Fighters & Youth Athletic Club said.

The club will be boxing once a month through March at the East Grand Forks American Legion.
