What Is Guns ‘N Hoses?Guns ‘N Hoses is an exciting charity boxing event featuring Police, Fire and EMT personnel within the greater metropolitan area. Participants are from the Missouri counties of Cass, Clay, Jackson and Platte; and the Kansas counties of Douglas, Johnson, Miami, Shawnee and Wyandotte. Safety is paramount during the event, and all bouts are supervised by USA Boxing, which is the national governing body of amateur boxing in the United States.
Who Is Behind Guns ‘N Hoses?John Brown is a legend in the sport of boxing and the mastermind behind Ringside, Inc., the world’s largest distributor of boxing and mixed martial arts (MMA) gear and apparel. He started boxing competitively as an amateur at the age of 13 and became an amateur boxing coach while in college. He continues coaching to this day.
In 1978, John was wearing 3 hats. He worked as an ofﬁ cer for the Jackson County Juvenile Department, ran the Tomahawk Boxing Club and got Ringside, Inc. off to a running start. Ringside has subsequently been a 24 hour a day, 365 days a year passion of his and he considers himself the luckiest man on the planet to be able to make a living enjoying what he does.
In 2005, John combined his love of boxing with his deep respect and admiration for our Police, Fire and EMT public servants at the 1st Annual Kansas City Guns ‘N Hoses event. As he reﬂects on the upcoming 6th Annual celebration, he is proud of the way our corporate community is embracing this tribute to the families of the men and women who put themselves on the line for us each and every day.
Who Beneﬁts From This Event?100% of the proceeds from Guns ’N Hoses beneﬁt local charities. The majority goes to the Kansas City Crime Commission’s Surviving Spouse and Family Endowment Fund (SAFE), which provides ﬁnancial assistance to the spouses and children of local sworn police officers, ﬁreﬁghters and emergency service personnel killed in the line of duty. The balance goes to amateur boxing programs in the Greater Kansas City area.
