BENEFITING: GLEASONS GIVE A KID A DREAM

EVENT: Fighters4Life Showcase

EVENT DATE: Nov 16, 2013

THE STORY:

Alan, much like his lovely wife Debbie, who’s also training for the 16th, is extremely inspired by the fine charitable work done by Bruce Silverglade and Gleason’s Gym.

It conjures up a deep respect and respect is a central tenet by which Alan lives. It’s a lesson his father taught early on, “life is like a clock, sometimes you are at 12, where you are on top, then life might bring you down to 3:00 or even 6:00 and you're facing the bottom...regardless of where you are on the clock, the motion continues and respect must always follow”.

As such, and because of the very nature of what respect means in boxing, Alan has come to think of Gleason’s as almost an extension of his family (high praise considering the high esteem in which he holds his family).

A place where he finds great comfort and from where he’s been able to develop not only boxing acumen with trainer Hector Roca, but a desire to do more for others as well.

Alan is sincerely honored and humbled by the idea of fighting for charity and he’ll have his work cut out for him since he recently tore his bicep at the Gleason’s Fantasy Camp in August.

But just as he was able to overcome economic adversity and come out stronger, Alan is working hard to overcome his injury and quite frankly his doctors are amazed at his progress.

Ever driven and absolutely goal oriented, Alan has his sights set on the 16th and what better way to recover than with family helping him along the way.
