Junior Middleweight James Moore Stirs The Sauce

The show, which was called “A Fistful of Shamrocks,” was promoted by Celtic Gloves Promotions.
Moore’s hard-earned victory stirred the junior middleweight pot by showing that he is a force to be reckoned with. On March 24 he stirred a different kind of pot at a South Bronx residence for men living in transition. He joined several members of the NYPD’s Holy Name Society who volunteer their time on Monday nights to cook dinner for the men residing at the St. Anthony Residence, which is run by the Order of the Franciscan of the Renewal.
Immediately upon his arrival, Moore donned an apron and began stirring the delicious meat sauce that accompanied the spaghetti dinner. Also served was salad and garlic bread.
Moore was a big hit with the residents, as well as volunteers Lt. John Welch, Sgt. Brian Reilly and Police Officers Robert Barrett and Craig Basler. “It was very nice of James to come show his support for the residents,” said Reilly. “He has as much class outside of the ring as he does inside of it.”
“I am very happy to help out people who are less fortunate than I am,” said Moore. “I have come to America to pursue my dream of being a world champion. The American people have really opened their arms to me, so I am honored to be able to give something back to a country and a city that has already given me so much.”
