Local boxer, and one of today's big winners, Anthony Colon knows what boxing means to the Puerto Rican community.

"Boxing is very big in the Puerto Rican community," said Colon. "It keeps us out of trouble, its what we pride ourselves on. On the island, we fight. So just us in the ring, we're fighters."
