Rhamon Johnson was crowned the 2014 National Silver Gloves Champion this weekend in Independence, Mo.
He went representing his group of at risk youth in a Pine Bluff boxing program that aims to teach kids how to channel their energy into a positive activity.
This is a goal he says he's worked very hard for.
"We come in the gym every Monday, Wednesday and Friday working out continuously practicing stuff and this is what I wanted," Johnson said.
His coach Albert Brewer says this a major step forward in his program keeping kids off the streets.
