GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) - Amateur boxing bouts have resumed at a Grand Forks-area club, one month after a North Dakota man collapsed in the ring and later died.
Twenty-nine-year-old Jeremiah ``J.J.'' Moen of Grand Forks suffered a seizure and lost consciousness following the first round of his February 16th bout in East Grand Forks, Minnesota.
He died on February 20th.
The Forx Fighters club, which shut down for a week after Moen's death, was back in action Saturday with 11 scheduled bouts at the East Grand Forks American Legion club.
Club coach Eddie Obregon unveiled a plaque with Moen's photo, paid for by the families of fellow boxers.
Boxer Reid Nelson says Moen's death has weighed on him and dedicated his Saturday match to his former teammate.
