Once again Dave Ruff brought in guest speakers to talk to the young boys at the Fraims Boys and Girls Club in Wilmington, DE. It was the last Monday before the Christmas holidays when Catherine Lebron and Eve Lang spoke to 9 young boys about boxing and life.

Ruff has been one of Delaware’s strongest supporters of boxing for many years. He works at the club every Monday. His own career had some 70 exhibitions. The boy’s included Marquise Clement, Deven Jones, Jayden Stewart, Orlando Rider, Sirod Pennewell, James Glick, Robert Saienni, Donavon Morales and Chigaco Graham. Clement at 14 is the most accomplished of Ruff’s boxers. Others range from 8 to 13. Cory Wallace works with Ruff at the club and was in attendance. Candice Estrada also made an appearance. She also helps Ruff out with the boys.

Lebron is a former Muay Thai boxer who has fought in NY and NJ and looking forward to making her professional debut in early 2013 under Brian Cohen. She is from Trenton, NJ, and lived in Philadelphia for several years before moving back to Trenton. She is trained by Danny Davis. Lane is looking for her first amateur bout and lives in Philadelphia. She was born in Arkansas and moved to St. Louis, MO. before coming to PA.

The boy’s were well dressed and well mannered sitting around the table. Lane told the kids “you need a routine in the gym. It will help you with your life skills.” She mostly trains at the James Shuler Gym in West Philadelphia and has done sparring at the Elsmere Gym in Wilmington, DE. Ruff has also had her at the YMCA in Wilmington for instruction. She has trained under the watchful eye of Rob “Bam Bam” Hines, a former IBF light middleweight champion. “Feel a person out. Commit yourself. You get out what you put in. I did marathons. It’s an accomplishment in finishing something.”

“Boxing helps with self confidence. When you find your good at something it’s something you want to hold onto. I can adapt due to performing in front of crowds (400-500),” said Lebron. Ruff, one never lost for words, gave each person in attendance Muhammad Ali’s book “The Greatest”. “We will start Boxing 101 in January. I am quite pleased with the program and how the boy’s are picking up their boxing skills,” said Ruff. One of the questions one of the young boy’s asked Lebron was “are you married?” The way he said it coming from an 8 year old was cute and funny. All were treated to Pizza from the Club and cookies that Catherine brought at the end of the talks
