The children need that. "We did that for the kids," said Smith, 62. His most recent fight was 18 years ago. "Our kids should be all good. I have a small gym in Muskegon, but it requires money to run that stuff.

The kids are real winners. Dino and I had fun. Everything went well. It was awesome.

Smith is a Hawaiian born who has the nickname Hawaii Nightmare. He fought for the amateur and fought in the Toughman Contest.

The newville gym is a faith-based non-profit organization, which proceeds will be put into the Blues Gym second floor learning center.

Newville said, Rocky, having a similar vision as me and wants to help children out, has a lot of ideas that I have with his kids in Muskegon, and I agreed that the real winners are the kids. We did a good show and now I'm done.
