Win tickets to Jose Ramirez’ ‘Fight for Water’ this weekend

fightThe organizers of weekend’s “Fight for Water 2,” have created a nice narrative to run along side the nationally televised boxing match, which features 2012 U.S. Olympian Jose Ramirez as the main event. They are hoping the fighter’s close ties to the area — he’s from Avenal — will raise awareness about the drought and its affects on the farm-based economy here in the Central Valley.
