On Saturday February 1, 2014 thirty boxers representing local government agencies – police, corrections, fire, EMS, Armed Forces -- participated in a series of three-round boxing bouts well known to the public as the Battle of the Badges.

Fifteen fights took place, thirteen preliminaries capped off by a Co-Main Event and a Main Event. There was plenty of action throughout the night with several hard-hitting action-packed rumbles. Not to be outdone by the guys, the female matches offered an equal level of fireworks for the boxing enthusiasts in the crowd. The evening was capped off with a knockout in the Main Event bout.

A number of fighters representing local agencies participated. Here are their results:

Fight #1: Efrain "El Patito Peligroso" Maniz, representing Pechanga DPS Patrol defeated Eddie Guzman, US Forest Service (105, 108, 120).

Fight #4: Hector "The Hispanic Panic" Tamayo, Pechanga Fire Department, defeated Daniel "Gun Slinger" Alvarez, Riverside County Sheriff Dept. (131, 133, 143).

Fight #5: Nick Vega took the place of Mario "Fat Daddy" Alonzo and defeated Farris Hisle of Immigration Customs Enforcement (159, 163, 165).

Fight #6: Chris "Russian Concussion" Dublansky, US Forest Service (Trabuco Canyon) defeated "Slick" Nick Herstine, Pechanga DPS Patrol (175, 178, 196).
