WORLD-CLASS BOXERS LIVESTREAMING WORKOUTS, SOUL CITY BOXING DOING THEIR PART
The Jones family of Toledo, Ohio, has been making a difference in their community for years, mostly with little known to the general public outside of their community.
The Soul City Boxing Gym serves the community by not turning away a single person who needs a place something to do after school, as athletics fill the void that potentially streetlife could potentially inhabit with fewer options.
“Big O” Otha Jones, along with his son, Roshawn Jones, are the ones primarily running the gym, and have not just benefited the community, but also have a slew of young fighters emerging from the gym. These fighters include Jones family members, Otha Jones III and Oshae Jones, along with 2016 U.S. Olympian Charles Conwell.
In times like these in which it is easy, to fear the worst, I know I check on my grandmother via phone every other day, and my mom is currently living with me, it is easy to fear, fear, fear. “Big O”, Roshawn and the others at the Soul City Boxing Gym are giving people a bit of entertainment, during a pandemic and potential economic depression.
