BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - Boxers from the Refuse to Lose boxing club will step in the ring in hopes of raising money that will help send them to a national tournament, Saturday.

According to Coach Joe Cardenas it can cost up to $300 a fighter to enter into one of these national tournaments.
The six boxers--which range from ages 10 to 13--hope to represent Kern County in the Adidas National Boxing Tournament next month in Oxnard, Calif.
Fights will begin at 1 p.m. at the WSM Auction at 2701 Auto Mall Drive, Saturday. Tickets are $10.
