Father Dave Smith: Boxing in the Streets of Syria


Father Dave Smith of Australia is hoping that this video will pave the way for an amazing series of boxing-training camps to be held in Syria and in refugee camps around the world! 

Recently in Syria with Denning (who did the music and video) and Sol (who did most of the boxing), he notes that the three of them accomplished the following:


* made it all the way to Syria
* contacted all the relevant officials
* boxed and played with the kids in the streets
* put together a kick-butt record of what they achieved


Father Dave says, "I pray that God will now use this video to inspire fighters around the world to come and join our 'Boxers for Peace' program." 


He hopes that this video will reach boxing greats like George Foreman, Floyd Mayweather, Manny Pacquiao, Roy Jones Jr., and anyone who might have the heart and the courage to put their bodies on the line for the sake of peace and for the children of Syria!


Please share the video which has its own website:
