72nd Precinct commander to partake in NYPD Boxing Championship for Puerto Rico relief
A Sunset Park cop — the commanding officer of the 72nd Precinct — will head to the ring in the name of charity.
On Thursday, March 15 at 7 p.m., Deputy Inspector Emmanuel Gonzalez will participate in the NYPD Boxing Championships at the Theater at Madison Square Garden. During the event, dozens of matches between officers will take place, with each match contributing to a charity of the contenders’ choice.
Gonzalez will go toe to toe with Police Officer Richie Fuentes, also a member of the precinct, in a smoker match, a term often used in the NYPD bouts, with the money they raise destined to aid the Puerto Rico relief effort.
