Bicycling, Boxing & Education
Only Alone in the Ring (OAR) Fighters suffer disproportionately from anxiety, depression, poverty, and under-employment.
When in the ring, a fighter is honored, respected, and appreciated. After can be a different and a darker story.
As the great Willie Pep once observed: “First your legs go, then your reflexes go, then your friends go.” OAR wants to change that.
We need volunteers willing to serve as a first point of contact, someone to direct fighters to needed support. It may be just an ear, other times a call to an organization waiting to help with job training, psychological counseling, or medical services.
Become a fighter’s hero.

In 2006 we started promoting Bicycling events. The Tour De Kingston and The Tour De Ulster began in 2006. The Annual Recovery Ride began in 2007.
2008 brought us to Boxing Promotions. Working with Former WBC Super Lightweight Champion Bill Costello, Aaron Fitzgerald, Allen Nace, Tom Gordon of Kingston Nissan, we have promoted Amateur Boxing events and the Kingston Police Athletic League in Kingston N.Y.. These efforts have brought boxing to the community and the community to boxing in large numbers. Recent highlights occurred in both 2010 and again in 2011 when the Irish National Team consisting of the Belfast Cross Community Team (Monkstown and Holy Trinity) came to Kingston NY.
We have also for the past few years trained recreational boxers in the Yucatan area of Mexico.
These efforts have been successful, in part because all involved are trying to do the right thing. That coupled with experience, knowledge, focus and hard work have helped make Nace Promotions a success.
