On Friday, Nov. 21, the Oscar De La Hoya Foundation in association with the California Municipal Finance Authority donated new, state-of-the-art boxing equipment to the youth that train at the Santa Ana Boxing Club in Santa Ana, Calif. De La Hoya was on-hand to present the donation, interact with the gym's youth and encouraged them to train hard in school and at the gym.
"This is where you learn discipline," De La Hoya said to the youth at Santa Ana Boxing Club before presenting the new equipment. "Boxing gives you a sense of empowerment. It makes you feel confident. It makes you be humble. That's what boxing did for me."

Promoter Sampson Lewkowicz of Sampson Boxing is proud to announce the signing of lightweight prospect Jairo "Jimmy" Llanes (7-0-1, 6 KOs) to a long-term exclusive promotional contract.
From a fighting family, Llanes, from Los Mochis Sinaloa, Mexico, is the son of former Mexican Junior Middleweight and Middleweight Champion, as well as world title challenger, Jaime Llanes, who was stopped in seven rounds by then-WBO champion Verno Phillips in 1994.
In fact, Llanes says he dedicates his career to his father who, due to his bad lifestyle and partying habits, wasted what could have been a great a career. He has vowed not to follow in his father's footsteps.
20-year-old Llanes will make his debut under the Sampson Boxing banner on Friday, December 5 at the Arena Union in Los Mochis, when the takes on fellow Mexican Mao Corona in a six-round battle.
"Jimmy is a very talented prospect and is already very popular in his native Los Mochis," said Sampson Lewkowicz. "He is the third fighter brought to me by my trusted advisor in Mexico, Fernando Dominguez from Dominguez Promotions (along with Jorge Cota and Hugo "Cuatito" Ruiz). Fernando is my right-hand man in the country and he says this young fighter has what it takes."
