Prior to Star Boxing’s 32nd edition of the Rockin’ Fights series at the Paramount in Huntington on Sept. 21, students at West Hempstead High School enjoyed the opportunity to participate in a Q&A session via WebEx with several professional boxers during an official weigh-in on Sept. 20.

West Hempstead was one of five schools invited to join the session as the boxers answered questions following the Rockin’ Fights official weigh-in from Modell’s Sporting Good in Huntington. The participating boxers were Danny Gonzalez, Johnny Hernandez, Anthony Laureano, Alex Vargas and Dashaun Johns.

Each boxer answered 15 minutes of questions during the webinar as the participating students at each school had the opportunity to ask questions. The purpose of the interaction was to give students the chance to work with professional athletes as they begin to look into careers in journalism or sports marketing.
