Eminem Supports Downtown Youth Boxing Gym

Marshall Mathers Foundation involved in fundraiser supporting the DBG Youth Program.

The news came through the Instagram feed this morning, with Eminem sharing a promotional graphic concerning the happening, with the following caption:


Proud to have the #MMF involved to help out one of my favorite #Detroit organizations Downtown Boxing Gym Youth Program! The fundraiser also gives fans the chance to win autographed gloves from our @TitleBoxing #Southpaw collab + a handwritten letter from me.

The mission of the Downtown Boxing Gym Youth Program is to develop “good citizenship in urban youth through strong academic support, a demanding boxing program, and a connection to the community through voluntary service.”

The donation page shares that the “ten lucky winners will be chosen to win the already-sold-out Southpaw boxing gloves made by Title and autographed by Eminem. Additionally, one grand prize winner will get a handwritten response to a “Stan” fan letter from Eminem himself!”.

Eminem is being a part of the buzzing Southpaw (2015) boxing drama. In fact he was originally penciled to play the main role.

Southpaw drama tells the story about boxer Billy Hope turns to trainer Tick Willis to help him get his life back on track after losing his wife in a tragic accident and his daughter to child protection services (IMDb).

Southpaw hits the silver screen in Australia this Thursday 20 August 2015.
