The Libertyville Sports Complex was the site of the second annual Badges Versus Bad Guys boxing tournament Friday night in Libertyville.

The tournament, organized by Larry Lentz of Lake County Athletic and Boxing Club, raises money to fund scholarships for at-risk youth.

 

Some of the 15 bouts matched "average Joes" against local politicians, police officers and other officials. Among those on the fight card were Waukegan Mayor Wayne Motley, Cook County Sheriff's Deputy Bill Bodenhagen and the women's Golden Gloves champs in the 147-pound class from Chicago and Wisconsin.
