Boxing, more than a sport, is a tool for the development of society. Jonathan “Maravilla” Alonso knows that perfectly and for this reason, he will use the discipline to contribute to the fight against childhood cancer in Asturias, Spain, where he is based, an objective that is in sync with the values of the World Boxing Association (WBA).

Alonso did not miss the opportunity to participate in the Sport vs Childhood Cancer event, which will be held in Playa de los Quebrantos and will have the participation of several athletes of different specialties. The undefeated boxer will do an exhibition with his trainer to help raise funds for children with cancer.

Alonso talked about his reasons for participating in this activity: “Primarily to raise funds for these children and above all to be able to make them happy for a day and for them to share that experience with me”.

“I want to share with them the values of boxing, the sacrifices, the efforts, the companionship, and show them that dreams can come true, even if they are very difficult. In boxing, as in life, we must always keep fighting”, he answered when he was asked about what he wants to teach the children.

But beyond what he can teach or contribute, Alonso knows that reciprocity is valuable when dealing with these children: “Both the people who come to share with these children, and I, think that sometimes we complain too much. Sometimes they cannot run or they cannot speak well nor enjoy life as we do and that helps us see that life is more valuable than we think. I want them to leave the hospitals, the routines and be able to enjoy a fun and different day”.

The boxer spoke about the WBA and emphasized the collaboration of the organization in events like this, which makes Alonso admire it very much. “The WBA is the best boxing organization and also the oldest one, it’s a pride for me to be tied to it and I hope to be very soon on its lists. But the most important thing to me is how it collaborates with campaigns like the one I’m going to do, that’s why it is an honor”, concluded “Maravilla”.
