In 2003, Battle of the Badges was created by Correctional Officers Israel Montes Jr. and Yvonne Vasquez of CSP-Sacramento. Officer Pablo Vazquez Jr. later joined the team and was very inspirational in making the event a huge success.Officer Pablo Vazquez Jr. passed away 2007. Thank you for all your help Pablo!! The participants consist of Correctional Officers, Police Officers, and Firefighters throughout Northern California. The event has contributed thousands of dollars to many worthy charities.

In 2008 the Battle of the Badges charity boxing event was held at the historic Memorial Auditorium in downtown Sacramento. The event drew over 3000 spectators who came to cheer on their favorite fighters. With the help of our participants, sponsors, and volunteers, our past events have been extremely successful and continue to grow in size and popularity.
2009 was a fantastic charity boxing event held at Raley Field in West Sacramento October 10 2009. Raley Field is a beautiful outdoor stadium and home to the River Cats triple AAA baseball team. It has been the host of numerous concerts and community celebrations over the years. Raley Field is nestled along the Sacramento River and only a short walk to Old Sacramento. A great place for dining, shopping, and many points of interest.
This last year the event was held at the Memorial Auditorium in downtown Sacramento. With our past success and knowledge of the location it again proved to be a huge success, we were broadcasted on Radio, Television, and across the Internet while holding many promotional events prior to the fight. We were also on Comcast on Demand this year gaining even more popularity. Sponsors that worked with us on this event received great visibility while benefiting a fantastic cause.
We look forward to this year and have some exciting events coming your way!
