The Police Activities League (PAL) of Austin hosted a boxing show on Saturday, April 5, at the Pan Am Rec Center.

Boxers age eight to 21 participated in 25 matches throughout the afternoon. "PAL is designed to support at-risk youth in our community by offering these children a safe place to gather and enjoy educational and social benefits, as well as athletic opportunities," organizers write. "The goal of the program is to prevent and combat juvenile delinquency and to promote and improve the moral and civic standards of youth."

Take a look at our photos from the show, via the KUT Flickr page.
