Las Cruces, NM (KTSM) — A Las Cruces boxing center that helps troubled teens reopened on Wednesday.
As we first reported Monday, the Pal Boxing Club was closed after negotiations with the city's parks and rec department failed. Community members say the center has helped prevent teen crime and violence by providing a productive space.
As part of the new agreement, PAL must serve at least 20, 8 to 17-year-olds a day.
The group currently has 75 registered kids. The boxing center will also be closed on weekends and in the past, they were open seven days a week.
