Tiny Town, USA – The sweet science is making a return to downtown Ithaca this Saturday when the Greater Ithaca Activities Centers hosts the Chet Cashman Classic.

Twelve bouts are planned starting at 2.30 p.m. in the Beverly J. Martin Elementary School Gym at the corner of W. Buffalo and N. Albany Streets. 

Talented boxers from throughout the region will be in the ring including fighters from Ithaca, Elmira, Cortland, Syracuse and Rochester. 

If you haven't attended a boxing event before this is a great opportunity to see what a thrilling sport it really is. This is not about concussions and brain damage and "knockin' nosebones into heads" as Mike "The Biter" Tyson was fond of saying. 

Check out the poster here for more details. Come by and show your support for the sport, for GIAC and for Chet Cashman, who has almost single-handedly kept boxing alive in Ithaca. Cashman has kept GIAC's free boxing program open for a couple of decades now and it's still going and with help from a few friends and enthusiasts, growing again.

Be there or remain ignorant of this fabulous event.
