*LONG ISLAND, NY *(August 1, 2018) – Former middleweight champion *Peter
“Kid Chocolate” Quillin *and WBA Super Middleweight Women’s World
“The Empress” Napoleon *visited Crestwood Day Camp Wednesday afternoon and
hosted a motivational and fitness training session with over 200 campers.
Quillin and the Lindenhurst-native Napoleon took advantage of the
opportunity to share positive messages with the campers ahead of their
respective matchups taking place this Saturday, August 4 from NYCB LIVE,
home of the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum.
“Being a boxer is my lifestyle, and to be able to share some of the things
that made me who I am with these kids is a great joy,” said Quillin. “It’s
so important to reach out to the next generation and give them the tools to
live positively. As a pro athlete, I consider that part of my job and
something I take pride in doing.”
“I’m so happy to be here and give something back for these children,” said
Napoleon. “Sharing different tips and motivations while I’m here is really
an honor. I’m focused on defending my title Saturday night, but something
like this is really a treat. I hope they all had fun and learned something
they didn’t know before today.”
The fighters spoke to the larger group of campers and showed them some
training techniques before running a half hour fitness session for about 25
seven and eight-year-olds to round out the afternoon.
