Cobb Public Safety Director Mike Register and GBI chief Vic Reynolds are going to square off in an exhibition boxing match as part of a charity boxing event to benefit the Cobb Police Athletic League (PAL).
The event, called “Smoke N Guns” because of the matches between the Cobb police and fire departments will be held at the Coca-Cola Roxy at The Battery (near SunTrust Park) on September 13, 2019 at 6 p.m.
According to the press release from Sgt Wayne Delk of the Cobb County Police Department, “This entertaining, action-packed evening will feature Cobb County Police Officers and Firefighters as well as law enforcement officers and other first responders from surrounding areas.
