A rare night of boxing is coming to Richmond later this month.

The Richmond-based Pack of Wild Dogs (POWD) Combat Club is hosting the event billed as “Proving Grounds 7,” which will take place April 25 at the Richmond Rod and Gun Club on Cambie Road.

It’s the seventh event of its kind being put on by POWD, but the first for the organization in Richmond.

POWD’s club manager, Jedro Magtoto, told the Richmond News they haven’t hosted in their home city, as of yet, as it’s not easy to get the right venue.

He said the event will “showcase some of the most talented boxers in the local area, and promises to be an unforgettable evening of action-packed entertainment.”

Proving Grounds 7, added Magtoto, will feature an “exciting lineup of matches between skilled fighters, each vying for the chance to prove themselves in the ring.”

He said the event promises to be a “thrilling showcase of athleticism, dedication, and passion for the sport of boxing.”

"Our goal is to provide a platform for local boxers to showcase their skills and gain recognition for their hard work and dedication to the sport,” said Magtoto.

Doors will open at the hall at 6 p.m. on April 25 and tickets are now on sale, although they’re limited, due to the size of the venue.

The tickets cost $45 each, which includes a smokey, chips and a drink from Famous Peter’s Auto Mall Food Truck.

Call 778-883-2950 or 778-322-2195 for tickets or take your chance at the door on the night of the event.
