FORMER WORLD CHAMPION AND RENOWNED BOXING TRAINER BUDDY MCGIRT JOINS FIND A DREAM

PhilBoxing.com


Find A Dream?a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization that reaches out to community children and provides them a healthy channel to find and work towards fulfilling a dream?has recently announced the newest acquisition to their team of all stars?former two-time world champion and world renowned boxing trainer Buddy McGirt.

Inside the squared circle McGirt accumulated an impressive record of 73-6-1 with 48 knockouts, and since retiring from the sport in 1997, has focused his attention on working with a handful of boxing?s best, including the late Arturo Gatti, Tomasz Adamek, Antonio Tarver, Matthew Macklin, James McGirt Jr., Paulie Malignaggi and more.

In 2002 McGirt won the Boxing Writers? Association of America Trainer of the Year Award.

?I am happy to be part of Find A Dream and help them spread awareness and bring their mission into fruition,? said McGirt. ?Boxing can help a lot of people, both boys and girls. It instills inside of them confidence and self-esteem that they can carry over into all aspects of their lives. Even if they don?t pursue becoming a fighter, it can help them with anything in life because of all of the hard work and dedication that they put into it; it gives them a strong sense of self-motivation.?

McGirt joins an elite team of former boxers and agents on Find A Dream, including Olympic Gold Medalist and former heavyweight world champion Ray Mercer, three-time world champion Bobby Czyz, 4-time world champion Michael Moorer, renowned boxing agent Chico Sherwood, Don Steele, Hector Camacho Jr. and more.

Find A Dream believes McGirt can be an intricate part of the team in helping to get the message of the organization out there to kids around the world.

?Buddy McGirt is a household name within the boxing world,? said Rod Ricciardi, founder of Find A Dream. ?As a fighter he claimed two of the most prestigious boxing titles at light welterweight and welterweight, and his list of championship boxers he has trained speaks for itself. He always carries himself in a professional and classy manner, and we know he will have a huge impact with our organization going forward.?

In coming weeks McGirt will be cornering Matthew Macklin as he will exchange leather with Joachim Alcine in a battle of top middleweights.

Additionally, McGirt will be a guest of honor at a celebrity fundraiser in Hollywood on September 13 that Find A Dream is putting together in conjunction with Gotham City Films Foundation.
