UPDATE: PAL Boxing Center reopens

Wednesday, August 6, 2014 - 7:10pm

A Las Cruces boxing center which helps troubled teens reopened Wednesday.

As we first reported Monday, the Pal Boxing Club was closed after negotiations with the city's parks and rec department failed. Community members say the center has helped prevent teen crime and violence by providing a productive space.

As part of the new agreement, PAL must serve at least 20, 8 to 17-year-olds, a day.

The group currently has 75 registered kids. The boxing center will also be closed on weekends, in the past they were open seven days a week.
