After parting ways with the Queen Team, based out of Cappy’s Boxing Gym, the Queen of the Ring is getting settled into her new training headquarters at Tacoma Boxing Club. Queen Underwood, on a mission to win women’s boxing gold at the 2012 Olympics, has launched a new website and started her own Twitter account.
Though she is spending more time training in Tacoma and around the country, you can meet Underwood at the Last Supper Club down in Pioneer Square August 5. The Garfield alumna will be raising money for the new Queen Underwood Foundation.
More info, from the Facebook event:
Queen is back in Seattle after training with Freddie Roach, professional boxing’s most respected trainer (27 world titles) and will be speaking at a WOMEN OF INSPIRATION NIGHT WITH THE SEATTLE STORM along with Maj Margaret Witt, Jeanne Higgins, founder of girls on the Run Puget Sound, and other special guest.
DATE: Friday, August 5, 5:00pm-9:00pm
LOCATION: Key Arena, Champions Room,
If you are not fortunate enough to have a ticket to mix and mingle with Queen Underwood at this event, Champion + NRG will be throwing a meet and greet and fundraiser for the newly forming Queen Underwood Foundation “Living Out the Dream” at Last Supper Club. Come get your picture taken with the Queen, and get to know this truly amazing and captivating athlete and philanthropist.
Guest will have private entry, free cover (donations for entry will be accepted and will go to the Queen Underwood Foundation) dedicated bar in which a portion of proceeds will go to benefit Queen Underwood’s newly forming foundation, A silent auction and raffle with gifts donated by Last Supper Club and other area businesses. (more information coming soon). I will update more as soon as we have more information, but SEATTLE let’s support excellence on so many levels!
She’s made what was probably a difficult decision to commit to new skilled, competent coaching. Looking forward to 2012!
