A 62-year-old ban on professional boxing in the City of Glendale, California will become history on Friday, June 12th, 2009 when Art of Boxing Promotions, in association with Bash Boxing, presents “Glendale Glory” at the Glendale Civic Auditorium. Click for more on this historic event!
In 1947, the sport of boxing was banned as “unwholesome” entertainment in the City of Glendale. For over 62 years, Section 5.32 of the Glendale Municipal Code banned professional boxing matches within the entire City of Glendale. But on March 17, 2009, the Glendale City Council voted to temporarily lift the boxing ban and for the first time in over 60 years, fans of Glendale can see tomorrow’s boxing stars on June 12th!
