Police, firefighters duke it out for a good cause

Minneapolis and Saint Paul police officers, firefighters and emergency responders will go toe-to-toe in a charity boxing match Saturday, March 1.

Fists fly at 7 p.m. at Uppercut Boxing Gym in Northeast Minneapolis. Doors open at 6 p.m. Tickets cost $20 at the door (cash only). Food, liquor, beer and more will be available to purchase.

Uppercut Boxing Gym is located at 1324 Quincy St. NE.
