Maurice "Mighty Mo" Hooker (26-0, 17 KO's) the reigning WBO Junior Welterweight Champion of the world from Dallas, Texas, who is co-promoted by Roc Nation Sports, gave back to his community today.
The students from the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Dallas and the St. Philip's School and Community Center were treated with popcorn and cokes at the Studio Movie Grill in Dallas, Texas to watch "Missing Link" which hits your city on April 12, 2019 in a theatre near you.
Growing up in Dallas, Texas, "Mighty Mo" knows of the challenges kids have in some of the the rough neighborhoods whence he came.
That is why it is important for him to him to give back to his community and encourage them to work hard and be good students in school and life in general, and one day they can be a world champion just like him.
On hand at this event were his long-time manager and mentor Arnie Verbeek from the Maple Avenue Boxing Gym in Dallas, Texas and Towalame Austin from Roc Nations Sports.
"Mighty Mo" has given before and continues to promote education and self-esteem to the youth of Dallas because he is living proof that if he can do it, so can they.
He recently defended his 140 pound title in March of 2019 in New York against Mikkell Les Pierre (21-1, 10 KO's) in Les Pierre's hometown.
Prior to that, "Mighty Mo" stopped Alex Saucedo (28-1, 18 KO's), the number one WBO contender at that time in his hometown of Oklahoma City.
And speaking of hometown's, prior to the Saucedo fight, "Mighty Mo" defeated Terry Flanagan (33-2, 13 KO's) in his home country of England to capture the WBO Junior Welterweight championship belt and he brought it back to Dallas.
"Mighty Mo" continues to push the envelope in and out of the ring as a Father, a World champion and a mentor for young kids to work hard in school and that nothing is impossible
