COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.(AP) Call him pretty in pink and Lenroy "Cam'' Thompson will just smile.

Heckle him for wearing pink trunks, pink headgear and a pink T-shirt in the boxing ring and he'll laugh.

The 21-year-old super-heavyweight from Lenexa, Kan., is seeking his second title at the USA boxing national championships Saturday night and has found a unique way to promote both himself and the fight against breast cancer.

He fights his opponents decked out in light pink trunks adorned with the cause's signature pink ribbon, pink headgear and a pink T-shirt that reads "Fighting is a lot easier when your opponent isn't cancer.''
