Ken Weiss, also of Rock & Sock said, "We hope the entire women's boxing fan base gets behind the BCR effort and helps out while enjoying a great night of boxing." "We'd like to thank Everlast for their "Pink Glove" campaign and we're positive it will stimulate awareness and help raise funds for breast cancer research", added Rock & Sock partner Stuart Breslow.
