A Memphis MMA promoter hopes to unlock the best in Mid-South children.
World Boxing promoter Sam Watson was honored by the city, county and state Thursday, which is now recognized as Sam Watson Day in the Bluff City. Between promoting the recent Floyd Mayweather versus Conor McGregor fight, World Boxing promoter Sam Watson got a key to the city from Mayor Jim Strickland.
Watson is also partnering with the Police Athletic League (PAL) to give children an outlet for energy that otherwise could result in negative outcomes and life choices. He also hopes to bring more boxing to FedExForum.
