Boxer Defends Animals

Mixed Martial Arts fighter KJ Noons partners with PETA to end violence and cruelty to animals.

Recently, mixed martial arts fighter KJ Noons teamed up with People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) to create a new PETA2 campaign combating animal abuse. Print and video advertisements bolstering the slogan “Pick On Someone You Own Size” feature Noons advocating for animal rights and emphasizing that violence against animals is a crime that should be reported to local authorities. The boxer also calls animal cruelty cowardly, and says that while throwing punches is his profession, he doesn’t advocate real violence towards animals or humans. PETA2 is currently holding a raffle to raise awareness for the campaign, with prizes supplied by several of Noons’ sponsors.
