DeWalt launches boxing promotion

Power tool manufacturer DeWalt has announced the launch of its 2011 “Knockout Challenge,” a series of competitions that will take place at selected Home Depot stores nationwide from May 5 to June 17. The contests -- where participants will compete in driving screws into a challenging surface -- will help promote the WBC Light Middleweight Championship fight between Saul "Canelo" Alvarez and Ryan Rhodes on June 18 in Guadalajara, Mexico.

Winners of the contests will receive a "Fight Prize Package," which includes a pair of DwWalt boxing gloves signed by legendary boxer Oscar De La Hoya, a DeWalt 12-Volt MAX 1-1/4" Impact Driver Kit, and a DeWalt /Golden Boy T-shirt.

The Knockout Challenge, part of a partnership with Golden Boy Promotions, will run up until the fight and is open to legal U.S. residents over the age of 18.
