Former boxer to tell his story
WRITTEN BY :   Eric Pierce

Former WBO lightweight champion Ebo Elder will speak at Desert Reign Church in Downey next Friday, June 13, at 7 p.m.

Elder, 35, was a contender on the ESPN boxing reality show “The Contenders 2.

Elder will speak about “one man’s rise to success and his fall to despair.” The church describes his talk as “a story of love and happiness to suicidal desperation, from abuse and divorce to a life of redemption and restoration.”

The free event will include a performance by local band Radiant Cadence.
