Punch4poundsKIDS is a great opportunity for the greater Greensboro kids. What I’ve seen throughout the years is a lack of things for children especially young men to do, it’s something to look forward to other than the streets. What pound4pound kids are doing is creating an out!!! That’s what the young men need gangs are taking a toll on our streets Gun violence is taking a toll on our streets drugs are taking a toll on our streets Mental health is taking a toll on our men!!! What They Need is an out!.....and that is what pound for pound kids is providing, I approve of what he is doing he much-needed in the community and he needs the cities to support!!!”- Tezrah C

I just wanted to thank Steven Matthews and the Punch4PoundsKids team for all they do in their efforts to reach the community and have a positive impact on the youth at this critical time. Steven has a unique ability to relate to the youth because he made from the same environment, they're suffering in. Relatability and authenticity are vital components to reach the youth of today and Steven definitely possesses those qualities.” - James A
