Guns ‘N Hoses boxing event postponed amid Ferguson unrest (VIDEO)

Organizers of the 28th Annual Guns ‘N Hoses boxing event to benefit the families of Missouri emergency responders killed in the line of duty have announced this year’s event will be postponed due to unrest in Ferguson.

The event pits firefighters and police officers from area departments against each other in the squared circle. The boxing matches are typically scheduled at Scottrade Center on the Wednesday night before Thanksgiving every year, but not this year.

Last year the event drew in nearly 17,000 fight fans. Coordinators stressed that the event has been postponed and not cancelled, but they’re unsure what day the event will take place.
