Former World Class Boxing Champion Behind Bars

A former world class boxing champion who volunteered with Bridge 41 training future boxers in Manchester is now behind bars.

Marty Wolfe has been training young people for nearly one year on how to be successful without using drugs. But with only days left of probation, Wolfe says he failed a drug test. Wolfe says he had been clean for two and a half years before he started hanging out with the wrong crowd and relapsed.

"I'm a fighter and this is round one. We may be on the ropes, but we're not done. We're going to come out swinging and it's going to be ok," Wolfe said.

Wolfe now faces three years in prison. Bridge 41 officials say the project will not shutdown.
