Tulsa firefighters and police faced off in a "Smoke N' Guns boxing match last month, and Friday two charities became the real winners of that battle.

Because they won the most rounds of MMA fighting and boxing, firefighters received an $18,000 check for the Oklahoma Firefighters Burn Camp, which helps children with major burn injuries.

The police may have lost in the ring, but they still collected a $12,000 check for Special Olympics Oklahoma.

Scotty Stokes, with the OK Firefighters Burn Camp said, "Most of our donations are individual donations, $100 here, $200 there. Which, that's what we survive on. But when we get a large donation like this, it really means a lot to us."

The $18,000 check is the biggest donation in the Burn Camp's history.
