As the President of the New Jersey Diamond Gloves, I want to thank everyone that had any part in making this Tournament the success it is. Special thanks go out to IBN-ALI Boxing Club, Union City Boxing Club, Dover Boxing Club, Elite Boxing Club, South River Knights of Columbus, Five Star Gym, KO Boxing Club and especially Linden Boxing Club, for hosting all are shows.

I want to thank all the Officials who came and worked the shows, especially Barry Hyman, who was the 1st one at every boxing show and started things off well a head of time to make sure everything ran as smooth as possible.

Also the Chief of Official Richie Perez, who made sure we had enough Officials for every single show and also made sure we, had a doctor as well. I also want to thank the rest of the Officials as well, Jay Salzman, Annie DeAlmeida, Ed Gabler, Jim Kinney, Eric Dali, Edwin Cruz, Mary Glover, Ali Bashir, Lou Esa, Anthony Lynn, Sammie Byrd, Jose Concepcion and our Glovemaster, Red Barron, for all the time they gave to the Tournament.
I thank Dr. Shubert Perrotte, Dr. Cory Smith and Dr. James Gibbons, for working our shows.

Alex Devia, our Ring guy, who sets up the Ring for us week after week.

I thank Red Mosley for all his help in running the Tournament as well. He fought in this Tournament back in the late 1940’s and is still very supportive.

I thank Rob Griffin for running all the Junior Olympic bouts. We had so may JO’s in the Tournament this year, that we had to add 2 more shows just to make room for all of them.

I also want to thank the President of the New Jersey Association of USA Boxing Jose Rosario, without his support, we would not have had the success we did.

Lastly I thank all the boxers that signed up and fought in our Tournament, without all of you there would be no Tournament. I just hope and pray that next year will even have a better, as all this is you.

Thanks once again, President Henry Hascup

2008 NJ Diamond Gloves Crown Champions!
“Around The Ring”
By: Bobby Breen

The NJ Diamond Gloves Championships were contested Friday night at Linden, NJ High School’s gym. In all ten bouts went off entertaining the always dedicated NJ amateur boxing fans who come out to support this show year after year. One thing noticeable about this year’s show, the fans were not disappointed! The bouts got better as the night went on. Wow, were there some great amateur boxing going on here!
All of the bouts were extremely competitive but I can only comment on a couple for the purpose of this article. Chris Velez put on a great display of boxing skills by decisioning Tyrone Luckey from the Middletown PAL in their 141 lbs. Open class matchup. Velez, from the newly formed Aspira Boxing Club was sharp in landing combinations as well as demonstrating good defensive skills. Luckey was not able to overcome the total package that Velez brought to the ring this night. Velez was on his way to “Boxer of the Night” accolades until the next bout got into the ring.

The 152 lb. Open class bout between Juan Rodriguez of Union City BC and Caleb Hernandez from Joe Grier Boxing Academy was a tremendous show of two young amateur athletes giving their all. Rodriguez won by me the first two rounds in a slugfest where he landed decisively and quantatively over the game Hernandez. In fact Rodriguez looked well on his way to simply out hustling Hernandez until an exchange toward the end of round two, that caused referee Richie Perez to give Rodriguez a standing-eight count. From there, Hernandez started the body attack he is known and capable of having in his arsenal. Rodriguez was far ahead on points and tried as he may to keep in the bout, Hernandez came on strong in rounds three and four of their four round two minutes each open class bout. I didn’t think Hernandez could overcome the point’s differential, but the judges did, awarding Hernandez a very close and well fought split decision. For his efforts Hernandez also won the “Outstanding Boxer of the Tournament, Open Class” award along with the 152 lb. open class championship.
165 lb. Open class boxer Denis Douglin continued his winning ways by decision over Dushawn Johnson of the International School of Boxing. Douglin, of New Breed BC won the 2008 National Golden Gloves in his weight class earlier this year and made it to the finals of the National PAL Championships was honored this past Thursday at the NJ Boxing Hall of Fame dinner as “2008 Amateur Boxer of the Year” (along with Mike Perez who also won the 2008 National GG’s at 132lbs.) He won his 165 lbs. division title and also picked up the NJ Diamond Gloves tournament “Sportsmanship” award.
The other special awards were; Super-heavyweight Kyle Hirschklau (Final Round BC) “Outstanding Boxer Sub-Novice Class” as well as a trophy for fastest knockout, which was at last week’s Plainfield, NJ show (0:13 seconds of round one). Lance Goodall, 165 lb. Novelus class of Bergen PAL won the “Outstanding Boxer Novelus Class”. All the boxers fought their hearts out and the action was crowd pleasing.
Speaking of Mike Perez, while the NJ Diamond Gloves finals were going on, Perez was entering his second pro bout at the New Alhambra Center in Philadelphia, PA. in a card put on by Top Rank Inc., Peltz Boxing and Joe Hand Promotions. Perez a “Brick City” Newark, NJ native, who came up through the NJ USA-Boxing amateur program, won by TKO at 2:40 in round one over Tommy Garcia of Hartford, CT. Listed as “Michael Angelo, The Artist, Perez” and boxing in the super-featherweight division, he improves to 2-0, with 2 KO’s. He is trained by NJ USA-Boxing President Jose Rosario.
Seen “Around The Ring” – At the NJ Diamond Gloves finals. Bobby “Matinee Idol” Czyz, former NJ Middleweight Champ, IBF Lt-Heavyweight Champ, and WBA Cruiserweight Champion. Czyz always comes out to be with the amateur boxers and he is much respected for it. Tony Orlando, Chairman of the NJ State Athletic Control Board (Boxing Commission). Orlando’s group the Linden Boxing Association sponsors this show every year and has donated hundreds of thousands of dollars as a result to recreation programs in Linden, NJ. Pro-Referee Randy Neumann was seen taking in the action. Tony Santana, former professional lightweight from Brooklyn, NY who fought for the world title twice was in the audience. And special mention and thanks should be made for Henry Hascup, and his lovely wife, Joyce. Henry Hascup is the NJ Diamond Gloves tournament director, and this could not be possible without his dedication and sacrifice to his family. It takes a lot to run an amateur boxing tournament. Hascup also runs the NJ Boxing Hall of Fame and he does a fantastic job doing it. My words to Henry at the end of Friday’s night show and the tournament, “I wonder how many kids he helped throughout this tournament keep out of trouble and off the streets”. That we may never know, but I do know, without people like Henry and Joyce Hascup, many more of our youth not would be at a boxing tournament on a seven week run on Friday and Saturday nights and afternoons. Thank you Henry for all you do.
It is with some regret that I must inform you this will be my last article on the NJ amateur boxing scene. Sometimes we just need to take a break. That time has come for me. I hope I was able to bring to the fans some fresh boxing news, some excitement for the amateur boxers to get their names in the press, and for amateur boxing in our area to have a way to let people know, amateur boxing is alive and thriving in the NJ & NY area. Thanks and who knows, maybe I’ll make a comeback. Thanks for the memories. BB

5/10/08. The National Golden Gloves Championships took place this week in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Thirty teams from thirty cities across the U.S. competed in one of the most prestigious tournaments for one of the most coveted amateur boxing titles, National Golden Gloves Champion.

NY Metro LBC and NJ LBC (local boxing committee) each sent a team of boxers to compete for a national GG’s title. All open division boxers who win the Golden Gloves in their respective city earn a trip to compete in the Nationals. It is the foremost breeding ground for the future Olympians and Professional boxers in our country.

On another note, Sadam Ali 132 lb. 2008 Olympian from Brooklyn, NY (Carnarsie) boxed last night in Bridgeport, CT. The competition was an international meet between USA, Brazil, and China. Ali lost by decision 17-12 to Everton Lopes, an Olympian from Brazil. Sadam Ali, a two-time NY and National Golden Gloves champion, will compete this summer in the Olympic Games in Beijing, China. He is the first boxing Olympian since 1988 when Riddick Bowe made the Olympic team and competed in Seoul, South Korea.

NJ Golden Gloves Conclude

By Bobby Breen

4/21/08. The NJ Golden Gloves concluded Friday night at Elizabeth High School’s Dunn Sports Center. Twelve bouts were matched and went off as scheduled. The winner’s in the Open Division go onto the National Golden Gloves Championships the week of May 4th to 10th in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Some two hundred boxers over the course of the last eight weeks boxed in front of crowds from Whippany, to Eatontown, to Plainfield, to Linden and Elizabeth. Although the New Jersey Golden Gloves doesn’t compare in magnitude or numbers of the New York Daily News Golden Gloves, the boxers are no less competitive. The next phase is to see how our boxers from the NY/NJ metro-area compete and compare on the National level.

Two bouts ended before the scheduled time with “RSC’s” (Referee Stops Contest). Jeff Moyd of Dupree’s Gym stopped Marcus Ruiz from New Brunswick BC at 1:17 of round two in their 165 lb. Sub-novice matchup. Moyd being the taller boxer used his reach advantage to out punch Ruiz. After too many of those and a few standing eight counts, referee Mary Glover called an end to the action. Dwight Springer of Gatlin Center had an early night stopping Esweldo Disla from Intl’ School BC at 1:22 of the second round in their 201 heavyweight Sub-novice bout. Springer landed steadily out pointing his opponent and earning an early win and the Golden Gloves to his credit.

The Open Class had some great matchups. Brian Paiz 119 lb. , Mike Perez 132 lb., Dustin Fleischer 141 lb., and Dennis Doughlin 165 lb., all won their open bouts and earned a NJ GG’s title and a chance to represent New Jersey at the National Golden Gloves Championships. Fleischer looked very impressive the entire tournament, winning two Boxer of the Night awards. The win was long awaited for Fleischer, who had to pull out of the GG’s last year when his Mother took sick. He came back this year and won over Tyrone Luckey of Middletown PAL in their 141 lb. Open match. Dennis Doughlin also won his 165 lb. Open Class. Doughlin, ranked #6 (right behind NY’s Daniel Jacobs) was a National PAL Champion last year and looks to be able to compete with success at the next (National) level.

James Kinney was awarded a trophy at ringside for “Outstanding Official” of the tournament. Kinney serves as a referee, judge and timekeeper for the NJ USA-Boxing Local Boxing Committee(LBC), and often travels to New York, and to other regional and national amateur boxing tournaments.

NJ Golden Gloves Finals Night

By Bobby Breen

4/12/08. The NJ Golden Gloves held their first night of finals Friday April 11, 2008 at Linden H.S. Twelve bouts filled the card as well as several hundred fans filled the gym. Two bouts were walkovers and ten bouts went off as scheduled. The Open Class boxers who won in their weight class move onto the National Golden Gloves Championships to be held May 4th thru 11th in Grand Rapids, MI.

The National Golden Gloves is one of the premier amateur boxing tournaments world renowned producing such National Champions as; Sadam Ali (currently USA Olympian), Daniel Jacobs, Joe Green, Luis DelValle, Jeremy Bryan, Jerson Ravelo, Glen Robinson, Lonnie Bradley, and Jose Rosario, are just some of the NY/NJ amateur boxers to win National GG’s over the years. I should not forget the Spanakos Brothers, Nicholas and Pedros. The list of World Champions is a who’s who in pro boxing; Jermain Taylor, David Diaz, Floyd Mayweather, Antonio Tarver, Oscar De LaHoya, Orlin Norris, Johnny Tapia, Mike Tyson, Virgil Hill, Donald Curry, Marvis Frazier, Greg Page, Wilford Scypion, Aaron Pryor, Michael Spinks, Michael Dokes, Ray Leonard, and that’s just back over thirty years! Add Marvin Johnson, Jerry Quarry, Emanual Steward, Cassius Clay, Ezzard Charles, and Sonny Liston to the list. To win a National GG’s is something to write home about!

Some highlights from Friday night’s card; David Roman and John Thompson boxed in a match that was made in heaven. Both Roman and Thompson were nationally ranked last year. Two top amateurs doing what they do best, box and fight. Roman from Bergen PAL came out on top of this 152 lb. Open bout and will move onto the National GG’s. Thompson from Dew Drop BC in Newark has no shame as it was a test of skill and talent with both boxers showing class and sportsmanship. Roman also was awarded “Boxer of the Night” honors. He could have looked as good as he did without the valiant effort of Thompson.

Wenzell Ellison of Dew Drop BC won his 132 lb. Open bout by decision over Derril Williams of Elite BC in a Semi-final bout. Ellison will now have to box on the next show, Friday April 18th in Elizabeth High School to make it to the Nationals. Lisandro Tupete of Joe Grier BA won by Walkover in his 178 lb. Open class. Tupete earned a spot on the NJ team to go to the National GG’s. The Super Heavyweight division made for a heavy night of action with two bouts featured and both ending before the scheduled three two minute rounds. Mike “The Beast” Hilton of Goss & Goss BC in Trenton, NJ won by RSC (referee stops contest) in 1:52 of round one over Omar Fowler of COMBATT BC in Newark, NJ. This was Hilton’s second straight RSC in two weeks of action. An RSC is an equivalent to a TKO in professional boxing. Junior Gelin of 1st Class BC won by RSC at 1:33 in round one over Adam Loffredo who boxed Unattached. Gelin rocked Loffredo who was wobbly afoot causing the referee to call an end to the action.

Overall a great card as the NJ GG’s wind down with the Open Class winner’s getting ready for the trip to Grand Rapids, MI. to compete nationally against the best in the nation. Next Friday April 18th at Dunn Sports Center, Elizabeth H.S. will be the final show of the NJ Golden Gloves. Showtime is 8pm. For more info contact Dan Shannon (908) 558-2031.

One more note worth mentioning. Our officials also participate and get selected to go to the Nationals as well. This show was a joint team of officials from NJ and NY. Making the trip over the bridge to the Garden State to help out the NJ Officials were; Robin Taylor NY Metro-USA-Boxing Co-Chief-of-Officials, Eddie Claudio, M.S. Murtaugh, and Carlos Ortiz, Jr. We thank them for their support and showing up to help out in with this show. Often times NY & NJ have shows that each LBC (local boxing committee) has officials working the show. It is great to see such sportsmanship and cooperation between the NJ LBC and NY Metro-LBC.

NJ Golden Gloves Head to Finals

By Bobby Breen

4/6/08. The NJ Golden Gloves concluded its semi-finals Friday night with a card at the Marriott Hotel on Rte. 10 in Whippany, NJ. Twelve bouts filled out the night with a large dinner crowd in attendance. Over 600 boxing fans enjoyed dinner with a night of amateur boxing at its best. The tournament moves into the final rounds with the next show to be held Friday April 11th at Linden High School located at St. George Ave. and Orchard St. Linden, NJ. Bouts begin at 8pm

Dustin Fleischer won “Boxer of the Night” honors for the second time of the tournament. Fleischer, a 165 lb. Open boxer from Gladiator Gym decisioned a tough Rashard Bogar from Dew Drop BC. Both boxers were well matched and in great condition, but it was the busier and more effective Fleischer who was able to land, especially keeping busy with his left hook to the bread basket of Bogar. Fleischer looks to be a heavy favorite to win the Golden Gloves in the Garden State. In the only female bout of the evening, Tabatha Younger won a NJ GG championship in her bout with Rachel Trent. Younger from Gatlin Ctr. BC decisioned Trent from Dover BC in their 145 lb contest and took home a pair of the coveted Golden Gloves.

Two bouts ended earlier than scheduled. Dwight Springer of Gatlin Ctr. BC stopped Jason Wilson from Middletown PAL at 0:35 seconds of round two of their 201 lb. Heavyweight Sub-novice division bout. Mike Hilton of Goss & Goss BC stopped Corey James from First Class BC at 1:15 of round one of their Superheavyweight Sub-novice bout. Hilton was heavy handed in his attack on James, who had the bout ended by referee Stan Davis with an RSC-H (referee stops contest-head blow) and will serve a 30 day medical restriction from all boxing activities including practice sparring. The NJ Golden Gloves show at Linden H.S. is one of the best amateur shows of the tournament. The sponsors have a full committee and run a well organized event. Usually many boxing dignitaries are in attendance. Come on out and see some Championship NJ GG bouts and see some of NJ’s boxing personalities. See you “around the ring”.

NJ Golden Gloves Battle On

By Bobby Breen

04/02/2008. The NJ Golden Gloves continue to pound away to the finals and championships for our young boxers vying for the golden crown. The tournament completed its fifth week and the semifinals are in full swing with shows scheduled for the first three Fridays in April.

Thursday night March 27th a card was held at JFK High School in Paterson, NJ, the “Silk City” where so many boxing personalities hailed from. Lou Costello (of Abbott and Costello) and the boxing club that bares his name, Ruben “Hurricane” Carter, Lou Duva, Kendall Holt, and former IBF Featherweight Champ Frank Toledo Jr., all hail from Paterson.

Dustin Fleischer of Gladiator Gym decisioned Anthony Bryant from Joe Grier BC in a 141 lb. Open bout. Fleischer was the quicker more skillful boxer putting on a great exhibition of speed and style. His efforts earned him “Boxer of the Night” honors. Bryant tried as he may and showing decent moments himself, could not stick with the better boxer Fleischer this night. Adrian Marte of Ike’s & Randy’s Gym defeated Charles Dixon from Gladiators Gym by decision in a 152 lb. Sub-novice match. Marte boxed well on the inside and had to go the distance. The winner of this bout had to also box the next night on the Westfield High School card to make it to the Semi-finals. Marte again was a winner the second night in a row. The card was televised by Cablevision to be shown at a later date.

The complete results of the March 27th card at JFK H.S. Paterson, NJ;

1) Pedro Rodriguez Passaic PAL dec. Corey Beckett Lou Costello BC 141 lb. S/Novice

2) Mike Perez Intl’ School BC dec. Alberto Manukin Union City BC 132 lb. Open

3) Adrian Marte Ike’s & Randy’s Gym dec. Charles Dixon Gladiators Gym 152 lb. S/Novice

4) Mike Hilton Goss&Goss BC dec. Alberto Miguero Unattached 201+ lb. Sub-Novice

5) Courtney Knight Renegade BC RSC Karim Aki Gladiator Gym 165 lb. Sub-Novice

6) Dustin Fleischer Gladiator Gym dec. Anthony Bryant Joe Grier BC 141 lb. Open

7) Glen Tapia Passaic PAL dec. Juan Rodriguez Union City BC 152 lb. Open

The second consecutive night of NJ Golden Gloves action took place at Westfield High School in Westfield, NJ. This night had eleven bouts with the winners going to the Semi-finals. Adrian Marte, who had to box the night before ended his bout quickly at 1:37 of round two. Going up against unattached Dennis McGill, Marte used a steady body attack to score and hurt his opponent calling for a mandatory eight count by the referee. A second eight-count was given with the referee stopping the contest (RSC) giving Marte another win. Marte from Ike & Randys’ Gym moves onto the semifinal round in his 152 lb. Sub-novice class.

Tyrone Lucky of Middletown PAL earned an RSC in his bout at 1:59 of round 3. Lucky boxing in the 141 lb. Open class stopped Don Bernard of Passaic PAL. Lucky looked impressive enough in his efforts to be selected as “Boxer of the Night” by the ringside officials. David Roman of Passaic PAL looked like his old self again boxing beautifully against Abbad Townsend from Dew Drop BC in their 152 lb. Open match-up. Roman, last year nationally ranked in the top ten ripped Townsend repeatedly to the body with quick combinations. Roman was relentless throughout the bout and really looked at the top of his game. The tournament moves into Semifinal round action with the weight classes shaping up to be some major battles for those amateur boxers going for the gold. NJ Golden Gloves action continues this Friday April 4th at the Marriott Hotel Route 10 East, Whippany, NJ. Bouts begin at 8pm. The following shows are April 11th at Linden High School and April 18th at Dunn Sports Center Elizabeth High School. For more info contact Dan Shannon at (908) 380-0829.

Saturday March 15th an amateur card was held in North Bergen, NJ. Hosted by Dover Boxing Club of Dover, NJ and headed by Ed Leahy, the card featured amateur boxers from NJ going up against a team from Montreal, Canada. Please note highlights below.

NY Daily News Golden Gloves – The premier tournament of tournaments completed its tenth week of competition with a show on March 20th at the Hempstead Rec. Center in Hempstead, L.I., NY. Boxer’s in the female divisions of 165 lb. 132 lb. and 106 lb. divisions competed. Ruth O’Sullivan of Gleason’s Gym won by decision over Nicole Dean from Team Free Form in a 106 lb. Female bout. O’Sullivan boxed well enough to earn the PC Richards “Boxer of the Night’ honors. O’Sullivan, a two-time NY GG Champion earned a trip to MSG and the finals for a another time. Additionally, one 119 lb. Novice and two 141 lb. Open class bouts were on the card.

In the 141 lb. Open class Livingstone Joseph from Harlem PAL stopped Orland Ortiz of Morris Park BC at 1:26 of round three by a vicious body shot that dropped Ortiz solid. Joseph originally from St. Croix, V.I., looked impressive as he heads to the Finals at the WAMU Theater at MSG. Joseph will face off against a strong Mike Brooks of Freeport PAL, who won his 141 lb. Open bout over a very game and competitive Chris Ventura from Yonkers YMCA. Ventura actually was in the bout the entire time, boxing extremely well in the first two rounds. Brooks came on as the bout progressed, being the active aggressor and landing more effectively, certainly persuading the judges so. The crowd thought otherwise judged by the boos from the crowd when the decision was announced. Frank Garriga from Morris Park BC won by decision over Jose Badillo of Team One BC in their 119 lb. Novice matchup. Garriga goes on to the Golden Finals round as a result. The NY Daily News Golden Gloves has one more week of Semi-finals action with shows scheduled next week for;

NJ USA vs. Canada Saturday March 15th – Canada brought a team of amateur boxers to NJ last weekend for a night of International competition. The card, held at Schuetzan Park in North Bergen, NJ featured a six bout preliminary Junior Olympian card followed by twelve bouts between boxers from NJ against Canada. Eighteen bouts in all and well worth the ticket. At the end of the evening each country had six wins apiece. The competition is always fierce between countries, as home town country pride is at stake. Any team traveling that distance to compete usually brings their best. Canada was no exception. The NJ USA team knocked off four straight wins in the first four bouts. Looked like a tough evening was ahead for the Canadians. Then David Gautier won by decision over Victor Montero-Cruz in a 130 lb. Open bout, giving team Canada a “W”. Gautier was chosen as “Boxer of the Night”. Patrick Farrell of Jersey City, NJ stopped Alec Bilodean from Canada at 1:12 in round one of their 201 lb. Heavyweight Novice matchup. Farrell just overpowered the Canadian with multiple punches, dropping him twice along the way. Sebastien Bouchand out boxed David Roman in a 152 lb. Open bout. Quite a feat for Bouchand as Roman was ranked in the top ten nationally last year. This indicates that the Canadian team had some very good boxers. Steve Harvey of Canada won in his 201 lb. Heavyweight Open bout. Harvey faced off against Audeliz Rivera of NJ and earned “Most Courageous Boxer” of the night after an excellent showing of boxing skills.

National Silver Gloves Semifinals Update
By Bobby Breen

2/1/08. The National Silver Gloves Semi-finals concluded today with over seventy bouts conducted narrowing the field for Saturday’s Championship Finals. Several NY/NJ area boxers competed and won advancing to the finals. This is a premier tournament testing the skills and abilities of young boxer athletes. It is the Silver Gloves that breed tomorrow’s champions in the Junior Olympics, National Golden Gloves and US Championships. The top of these major tournaments are the boxers who win at national and international levels, some of the many but only few chosen to represent the USA in the Olympics as this year’s 2008 boxing team will do during this coming summer in Beijing, China. Heard “around the ring”…there’s no tomorrow…there’s only today!
There is no talk here about the Super Bowl. No other subjects here but boxing in its purest living form. Young athletes who train and live to compete in the ring, representing their boxing clubs, their home states, or USA-Boxing Region, neighborhoods and communities. Coaches, trainers, parents, it is quite a sight to see such dedication and determination that makes this tournament and others like it work to help these young athletes perform, and learn about boxing, competing, themselves, and in general learn about life thru sport. Additionally, the USA-Boxing Officials, National Silver Gloves representatives, and Ringside Boxing Equipment, all make this happen. It is amazing to see boxing clubs come from all over this country, by car and plane, some traveling long distances, often on broken shoe-string budgets, so their boxers can compete, win, and earn the title “2008 National Silver Gloves Champion”.
Julian Rodriguez made it to the finals this year in his 90 lbs. 12/13 age class. Rodriguez boxed very well using side-to-side and counter movements to out box Manuel Robles of Region 8. Rodriguez lost in the finals last year and hopes to bring a title back to NJ this time. Pedro Sosa of the Bronx, NY who won the National Silver Gloves last year, lost this time in the semi-finals to Zeddie Adams of Cleveland, OH. Adams must be some boxer because Sosa is one of the best in the nation. Hoshwan Sambolin of Rochester, NY won by a very close margin to make it to the championship round. The team from Rochester, NY under Coach Jiles has 3 boxers in the finals. Trent Tedesco had a good bout winning by decision over Kewin King from Region 2. Tedesco looked strong in his efforts and will face off against Milton Williams from Cheletan, MD Region 3. Toka Rahn boxed very well and appeared to do enough to win but the judges thought otherwise awarding Brian Nichols the decision in their 132 lb. 14/15/ yrs. old bout.
Region 1 results from the 2/1/08 afternoon session;
James Johnson, Jr. R5 dec. Deshawn Cleaves NJ 65 lbs. 10/11 yrs. old

Carlos Osorio Syracuse, NY also will box in the finals Saturday 2/2/08 at 120 lbs in the 10/11 yrs. old age class.

There were 260 amateur boxers entered in this year’s National Silver Gloves. With the three (3) age categories, 10&11, 12&13, and 14&15, there are the standard twelve weight classes, plus the 60 lbs. up to 100 lbs. divisions, so there will be 46 Championship bouts in the finals. The boxers and other participants will attend a banquet and awards ceremony at the end of the National Silver Gloves tournament. BB

National Silver Gloves Kickoff

By Bobby Breen



2/1/08. The National Silver Gloves Tournament kicked off last night in Independence, MO. Some 300 boxers between the ages of 10-15 yrs. of age will compete over the next two more days for a National Silver Gloves title and national ranking points. With three boxing rings going, each having some 26-28 bouts last night, the ballroom at the Hilton Gardens hotel was busy. The nationals are broken up into eight regions. Region 1 Northeast covers, NJ, NY Metro, Adirondack (upstate NY) Niagara (way upstate NY), CT, New England (including Maine). I’ve been trying to follow the Region 1 boxers from NY & NJ. So far, most have faired well in this very competitive tournament. The National Silver Gloves is the premier tournament for young boxers at this stage of their careers as athletes. The kids have to train hard, win to make it to this level, and fight their hearts out. The coaches, officials, family and friends who support these young athletes deserve some credit. Boxing may be an individual competitive sport but the boxers need a team behind them. We get to see at this level some of the best boxers prior to them moving up to the larger more visible and recognized tournaments as they grow and mature.

Coming up winners in the opening rounds; R= Region #

Deshawn Cleaves NJ dec. Cody Waslager R7 65 lbs. 10-11 yr. old

Pedro Sosa NY dec. Alantz Fox R3 139 lbs. 14-15 yr. Old

Georgie Nacerio CT. dec. Dusty Harrison 100 lbs. 12-13 yr. old

Cymear Prescott Albany, NY dec. Shannon McCray R5 125 lb. 14-15 y/o

Toka Kahn N.E. dec. Anthony Lane R5 125 lbs. 14-15 yr. old

Shakur Jackson NJ dec. Edward Davis R2 147 lbs. 14-15 yr. old

Julian Rodriguez NJ dec. Janeil Foy R5 90 lbs. 12-13 yr. Old

Trewaine Williams CT. RSC-H Nathan Sainz R7 100 lbs. 14-15 yr. old

This is not an inclusive list of all the boxers from NY/NJ. A few boxers drew byes and will box today. One is Cristino Ceballo 125 lb. 13 yr. old from Brooklyn, NY. Ceballo is trained by Shem Pagan father of NY Golden Glove Champion, US Champion and 2008 Olympic finalist Shemuel Pagan. Look for the younger Pagan in this year’s NY GG’s before he turns professional later this year. Marcos Suarez highly regarded and ranked 112 lbs. 15 yr. old from the Bronx, NY lost in his first bout. Word was Suarez struggled to make weight. This is a setback as Suarez has won in many national tournaments and was a favorite here to win again in his weight and age class.

Shakur Jackson won a very close decision in his contest with Edward Davis in a 147 lb. 14-15 yr. old class. I spoke with Jackson this morning at breakfast. The 15 yr. old Jackson trains at Elite BC in Newark, NJ under coach Rob Griffith. Trewaine “Midget” Williams of Ring One BC in CT. looked impressive with a KO at 1:08 in round one over Nathaniel Sainz from Region7. Actually there are no KO’s in amateur boxing; the correct term is RSC, or Referee Stops Contest. In this case it was an RSC-H. RSC Headshot. Sainz receives a 30 day restriction from sparring and competing as a precautionary safety measure. Toka Kahn did well in his bout with Anthony Lane of Region 5. Kahn a southpaw used good movement to land his punches and gain advancement to today’s round of boxing. The crowd was roaring at Ring #1 when Pedro Sosa and Alantz Fox were going at it in a 139 lb. 14-15 yr. old match up. Sosa of the Bronx PAL looked strong with good inside punching that is his trademark. Ring #2 was the scene of a tremendous bout late in the evening between Christopher Picas of Region 8 (California) and Kevin Kelly of Region 2 (Pennsylvania, parts of VA and DE). Picos of East L.A. was stopped with a devastating body shot, a left to the ribs. This was in the final round after it appeared Picos was wining the bout. This was only one example of the exciting and well matched bouts that took place on opening night. Boxing resumes today at 1pm Kansas City time with a day session and at 6pm tonight for another evening session. The Championship rounds take place Saturday February 2nd at 3pm More updates and results will follow. Until then this is Bobby Breen reporting from the National Silver Gloves and I’ll see you “around the ring”. BB

Silver Gloves Northeast Regional’s Conclude

By Bobby Breen

The Northeast Region USA-Boxing Silver Gloves were held this past weekend at the Oneonta Boys and Girls Club in Oneonta, NY. Several areas were represented at the tournament including, NY Metro, NJ, CT., Niagara NY, and New England. Sixteen bouts were held Saturday Jan. 5th, with seven bouts held on Sunday Jan. 6th. The winners advance to the National Silver Gloves tournament scheduled for January 30th thru February 2nd in Independence, MO.

The Silver Gloves is the breeding ground in amateur boxing for the Golden Gloves. The Silver Gloves is a tournament for J.O.’s (Junior Olympians) in the 10-15 years old category. The ages are divided into three divisions, 10-11 yrs. old junior, 12-13 yrs. old Intermediate, and 14-15 yrs. old Senior. In each of these divisions are the individual weight classes. All of these amateur boxers had to win in their respective area’s (known as LBC’s, or Local Boxing Committee) to make it to the Regional in Oneonta, NY. For example New Jersey held their NJ Silver Gloves tournament on Saturday Dec. 8th at the Lou Costello Gym in Paterson, NJ. The National Silver Gloves Champions earn points to be ranked nationally in their age and weight category by the National USA-Boxing.

Many of the bouts were very good, but some were extraordinary. Marcos Suarez of NY Metro boxed very well earning a decision to advance in the 112 lb. senior class. Suarez decisioned Hector Colon of New England. Suarez’ stable mate at the South Bronx PAL, Pedro Sosa won over Joe Goss of CT. in a 139 lb. senior class bout. Jermaine Williams of CT. looked very impressive in a 106 lb. Intermediate bout winning over Jessie Nogha of Niagara, NY. Cymear Prescott of Albany, NY boxed great using his reach and range over Billy Cosgrove of New England who won impressively just the day before. Toka Kahn of New England won an exciting bout over Melvin Lopez of Albany, NY on day two of the tournament. The level of competition and the skill some of these young boxers have at this stage of their development is remarkable to say the least. We will see some of them come back from the National Silver Gloves as Champions and go on to other titles in the older age bracket tournaments. Let’s wish them the best when they travel to Missouri the end of January.

NJ Diamond Gloves Conclude
By Bobby Breen
11/6/07. The NJ Diamond Gloves concluded Friday Nov. 2nd with its traditional finals show at Linden High School in Linden, NJ. The card featured eleven bouts with several former nationally ranked amateurs competing against each other. The bouts were excellently exciting and demonstrated the hard work and determination our amateur boxers and coaches have. Some of NJ’s boxing elite were in attendance such as; NJ State Boxing Commissioner Larry Hazzard, NJ State Boxing Chairman Tony Orlando, Dean of all of Boxing Trainer’s Lou Duva, former Lt. Heavyweight and Cruiserweight Champion Bobby Czyz, Pro- Referee’s Harvey Dock, Ricky Vera, and Sparkle Lee, and former Cruiserweight Champion Imamu Mayfield. A class line up. What’s great about amateur boxing is the regular fans can come and see not only great boxing, but also see “around the ring” those who came up thru the amateur ranks to become successful in the professional ranks as well.

Two Female bouts were on the card one which featured Rachel Trent of Dover BC going up against Janet Ziegler from Dew Drop BC. This was the first bout of the evening and for the 141 lb. Female Sub-novice class Championship. The bout was better than average with Trent earning a decision over Ziegler. What was interesting about this bout was the level of conditioning both boxers had. Trent was in superb shape and it’s a testimony to the commitment Female boxers have to our great sport.

Rashad Bogarde of Dew Drop BC won a very close 3-2 decision over Tyrone Luckey of Middletown PAL in a 141 lb. Open bout. Tyrone wasn’t so lucky as Bogarde took him to left hook city throughout the bout. Round one was close, with Bogarde coming on stronger as the bout went on. Bogarde was just a bit more cleaner with his punches putting them together to get the “W”.

Glen Tapia of Passaic PAL took on John Thompson of Dew Drop BC in a 152 lb. Open bout. This was a re-match between these two boxers who met last year in the NJ Golden Gloves finals. Tapia is the former 2006 #1 nationally ranked 145. Lb. Junior Olympian. Thompson was formerly ranked #10 in the 152 lb. open class and was a 2007 US Championships semi-finalist. This could have been a more exciting bout between these two very successful amateur boxers, but the bout had a lot of tying up on the inside. Tapia won to avenge his prior loss
to Thompson.

Victor Valenzuela of Passaic PAL earned a pair of NJ Diamond Gloves in the 125 lb. Open class. Valenzuela decisioned Andrew Bentley of Jersey City Rec. in an action packed bout. Bentley had to lose five pounds prior to the bout, which surely had taken a toll on him prior to getting in the ring. It was said, oh so eloquently by Pierre Benoist the head USA-Boxing NJ Clerk at ringside, who does all the match making, “Bentley had to fight a bout with himself first before going into the ring”. Not to take anything away from Valenzuela, who was a 2006 ranked JO boxer. Valenzuela goes very well to the body and came out ripping in round three to earn the decision.

Another great bout this evening was between Larry Deposito of New Breed BC and Juan Rodriguez of Union City BC in a 152 lb. Novice bout. Rodriguez looked very impressive coming back with everything Deposito had thrown at him. Round three was a thriller as both boxers fought relentlessly. Rodriguez earned a hard fought decision.

Dennis Douglin of New Breed BC, a currently ranked #8 165 lb. Open class boxer decisioned Pablo Velez of KO BC in a great bout between two very well conditioned and trained athletes.

Douglin, coming off a sensational year with a Ringside World, PAL Nationals, and a Mid-West Olympic Trials wins, continued his winning ways by decision over a very game and clever Velez. Douglin was the busier boxer and gave Velez a standing eight count in round four to earn a clear win and another title to his long list of amateur boxing achievements.

Michael Mitchell and Jason Escalera fought a war of a bout in the 178 lb. Open Championship. This too was a re-match of last year’s NJ GG’s final in this weight class. Mitchell must have trained harder as he continuously went toe-to-toe with the tough Escalera out hustling and out landing him and taking a decision and the Diamond Gloves home this time.

Both boxers went to the body all bout. Just when you thought one would go down they came back even harder then before. Amateur action at its best!!

Sean Daniels won in 0:28 seconds of round three in a 178 lb. Sub-novice bout. Daniels got the jump on his opponent Karim Ali of Gladiators BC. Ali had looked great all tournament and this appeared to be another great bout in the making until Daniels took control and ended it early.

Tyrell Wright beat a very game John Lennox in the 201 Hvy. Open class bout. Wright of Jersey City Rec. out pointed the awkward at times but very good boxer Lennox of Lopez BC who was a NJ GG finalists in 2007 in the Super Heavyweight class.

2007 NJ GG Champion Houdini Moore of Gladiators BC won his 201+ Super Heavyweight bout over Lamont Fitzpatrick of Lopez BC. Moore was the more busier boxer landing harder, cleaner blows and thus points to earn the decision and add a NJ Diamond Gloves title to his accomplishments.

Lloyd Cain and Mike Perez each won by walkover to earn a Diamond Gloves title, Cain in the 119 lb. Open class and Perez in the 132 lb. Open class.

Outstanding Boxer of the tournament went to Michael Mitchell with the Sportsmanship Award going to Jason Escalera, for their exciting bout this evening. Quickest KO of the tournament went to Chris Gachette from Elizabeth Rec. BC who scored a KO in 0:15 seconds of round one on the Oct. 13th card in New Brunswick, NJ.

Team trophies went to 1) Hudson Co. BC, 2) Renegade BC, and 3) Dew Drop BC. This was a great tournament folks. A very well run and organized amateur boxing tournament and Henry Hascup and all the participants, coaches, trainers, USA-Boxing officials need to be complimented. Don Givens is the President of USA-Boxing NJ and his officials
and coaches do wonders with these young athletes.

Upcoming: The NJ Boxing Hall of Fame Dinner this Thursday Nov. 8th 7pm at the Venetian Caterers in

“Around The Ring”
NJ Diamond Gloves Pound Away
By Bobby Breen 10/22/07

The NJ Diamond Gloves came to South River, NJ Saturday night at the Knights of Columbus Boxing Club. Eighteen bouts headlined the card with twelve being for NJ Diamond Glove Championships and fans were not disappointed in the competitiveness and quality of the matches. I had reported here last week that the NJ Diamond Gloves was a smaller tournament compared to the NJ Golden Gloves, but Henry Hascup the NJ Diamond Gloves Chairman corrected me. Almost 200 boxers entered this year’s NJ Diamond Gloves, 192 to be exact, up from 150 from last year and exceeding the NJ GG’s.

The first bout of the evening was for the 112 lb. Sub-novice class Championship. Leroy Davila of New Brunswick BC decisioned Jonathon Simmons of Chris Gatling BC. These two boxers did not box like Sub-novices. The Sub-novice class is for boxers who have not competed in a USA-Boxing sanctioned event before. Perhaps they were from the Junior Olympic program (under 17 yrs. of age) or both possessed natural ability, but they performed as more experienced boxers. Davila landed the cleaner punches and won a clear decision over a very game Simmons. And that folks is the beauty of amateur boxing. You can see raw talent and skill in these fine young athletes, who dedicate themselves to the regimen of training in a boxing gym under the watchful eye of an equally dedicated coach. The evening started off just right!

Some of the more exciting bouts were; Donald Roberts of Goss & Goss BC won by decision over Luis Sanchez from Dukers BC in a 132 lb. Novice Championship bout. Roberts knocked down Sanchez in round one and earned a standing eight count over Sanchez in round two to go on to take the decision and a title home. Jason Escalera of Union City BC won a close decision over Lisandro Tupete of Joe Grier BA in a 178 lb. Open class bout. There was a lot of in close toe-to-toe action in this bout with Escalera advancing to the finals to be held on Nov. 2nd at Linden High School. Joseph Cossilini from Hudson Co. BC looked excellent stopping Patrick Howell of IBN Ali BC in a 141 lb. Sub-novice match up by RSC (Referee Stops Contest) at 1:36 of round one. His Brother John did not fair as well in the next bout. John Cossilini lost a tough decision to a very determined Chris Gachette of Elizabeth Rec. BC in a 152 lb. Sub-novice bout. This was one great bout with good exchanges throughout. It appeared Cossilini took round one, Gachette round two, and round three was even. But, due to no draws in amateur boxing somebody had to be declared a winner. Gachette was the effective aggressor utilizing a longer reach to land more. A hard fought bout by both boxers.

Eddie Leo of Knights of Columbus South River BC, a hometown favorite, pounded his way to a title and decision over Rob Berlinski from Checkmate BC in a 165 lb. Sub-novice championship bout. Leo looked to have difficulty landing in round one but adjusted to the taller longer reach of Berlinski and landed well to the body to rack up the points. Leo looked terrific all tournament boxing three times, winning each time by decision with great conditioning and going to his opponents body. Rashad Bogar of Dew Drop BC won by decision over Daryl Mack of Hudson Co. BC in a 141 lb. Open bout. These two boxers were equally matched that had Bogar just edging out the very competitive Mack.

John Thompson of Dew Drop BC looked impressive stopping Alvin Santiago of Joe Grier BA in a 152 lb. Open class bout. Thompson, former nationally ranked, used great hand speed to offset Santiago and won by a RSC (referee stops contest) at 0:27 seconds of round three. Patrick Farrell of Hudson Co. BC and Jersey City, NJ had the crowd behind him as he fought and won by decision over Prince Jenkins of Renegade BC. This was for the 201 lb. Heavyweight Novice Championship and Farrell picked up right where he left off from the NJ Golden Gloves title he won last year. John Lennox of Lopez BC boxed very well earning advancement with a decision over Elvin Sanchez of Joe Grier BA in a 201 lb. Heavyweight Open class bout. Lennox, who is quick on his feet and has good hand speed, mixed it up throughout the bout with Santiago and not only earned a win but also the “Boxer of the Night” award.

“Around The Ring”
NJ Diamond Gloves Heats Up
By Bobby Breen 10/14/07


The NJ Diamond Gloves completed its second week of competition on Saturday Oct. 13th 2007 at the New Brunswick, NJ Boxing Club and what a show it was! I have often told friends and family about the NJ Diamond Gloves and referred to it as a much smaller tournament compared to the Golden Gloves of NY/NJ. Yes, it is a shorter tournament in number of shows and competitors, but neither in action nor quality of amateur boxing excitement. This past Saturdays show was nothing less than sensational. Each bout grew dramatically more exciting as the night wore on and wore on it did. The show started somewhere about 8pm or so, and with six Junior Olympian Bouts added on plus the twenty-one, yes 21 Diamond Gloves bouts for the tournament, boxing did not stop until 1:45am. Yes Darling, no breaks, no intermission, just pure boxing all night long!!

Now, I would often ask myself why would anyone want to have a show that lasts so late. I mean to bring in boxers, coaches, officials, fans, family, and friends, sometime around 5pm for the weigh-ins and physicals, then to have some wait all night to box is beyond me. But no more. I looked around what was left of a standing room crowd only some where’s around zero “O” thirty in the morning and saw a much older grandmotherly Woman waiting in the crowd most probably for her grandson or possibly even her son. I got my answer at that moment. Where else would you want your kid(s) to be on a Saturday night in New Brunswick, NJ, or Newark, or Trenton? In these hard times and even harder cities, a sports program is the answer and boxing was my answer Saturday night. The dedication of these boxers, coaches, officials, parents, grandparents and family is phenomenal. I fully understand why a Grandmother would stay up and out so late to see her loved one compete.

Boxing saves lives, keeps young men and now also women off drugs, off the streets and out of jail. To the NJ Diamond Gloves you have already achieved a magnificent success in this year’s tournament.

Where do I begin? So many great bouts, let’s start with the first one. Brian Paiz looked smoking with a full range body attack winning by decision over Tony Harvin. Paiz did a fine job going upstairs and moving downstairs throughout the bout landing solid shots on Harvin. Harvin had to be checked by the Dr. in round two for a bloody nose. I thought this could be “Fight of the Night” but the bouts continued to get better as they went on. The details of each bout would take a small book to fill, so let me highlight the night and briefly comment on some of the key points from an amateur boxing card that you had to have been there to see it and believe it!

The third bout had Steven Knight of Renegade BC winning by decision over Chris Murphy of Dover BC. This was a 165 lb. novice matchup between two power punchers. Knight was able to out hustle Murphy and hence out point him as well.

Glen Tapia from Passaic PAL proved too much for Ryan Mickendrow of Dover BC in a 152 lb. Open bout. Mickendrow’s corner threw in the towel during round four giving Tapia, a former national ranked JO the win by retirement. Tapia was also named “Boxer of the Night” with this performance.

Denis Douglin of New Breed BC looked sensational stopping Duchant Johnson from Intl’ BC at :53 seconds of round one. Douglin just won the PAL National Championship recently in California in the 165 lb. Open class.

Patrick Howell of IBN Ali BC and Erkan Yucekus from Final Round BC engaged in a classic 141 lb Sub-novice bout. This was a great action packed bout with Yucekus showing great heart coming back in round three after taking some hard punches from Howell in the first two rounds. This was one of several Novice bouts during the evening that “see-sawed” throughout the bout. The saw tipped toward Howell according to the judges in this one.

Chris Gachette from Elizabeth Rec. just needed 0:15 seconds in round one to dispatch of Venkat Ramamoorth of Goss & Goss BC in a 152 lb. Sub-novice bout. Gachette jumped on his opponent and poured a barrage of punches that stunned Ramamoorth into submission.

Eddie Leo from Knights of Columbus BC South River, NJ won his second straight of the tournament with a decision over a very game Vincent Solomon from Dew Drop BC. This was a 165 lb. Sub-novice matchup that saw Leo pressing the action from start to finish and going up and downstairs. Solomon did not do a bad job, he just could not keep up with the cleaner, harder punches that Leo was able to deliver.

Another great 165 lb. Sub-novice bout with good action was Robert Berlinski from Checkmate BC winning by decision over Rahmon Felder of 1st Class BC.

Sean Daniels of IBN Ali BC won by RSC (referee stops contest) at 1:40 in round one over Angel Bruno from New Brunswick BC. RSC is similar to a TKO in the professional ranks.

Kareem Ali of Gladiators BC won by retirement over Ricky Baez of New Brunswick BC in a 178 lb. Sub-novice bout. Ali was starting to out-class Baez by the end of round one. Baez sustained a standing eight count by the referee and almost earned a second one at the end of the round. Baez’ corner wisely stopped the bout and Baez by not answering the second round lost by retirement. There is no shame in trying and stopping a bout is much safer and respectable than having an injury sustained in the bout.

Rob Walder of Team Gladiator BC came up big in winning his Championship bout with Rutger Indri of New Brunswick BC. This matchup was in the 201 lb. Heavyweight Sub-novice division and was very competitive. Walder just seemed to out point Indri by a small margin to take home the belt.

The 165 lb Open class bout between Pablo Velez of KO BC and Aaron Watson of Gladiators BC was a mini-war. This was a rough and tumble bout that featured the heavy handed Watson trying to land on the counter and combination throwing Velez. Velez just out hustled Watson who tried too hard to land more powerful but less punches. In amateur boxing scoring punches add up to points and points add up to winning decisions.

Michael Mitchell and Ibnakbar Richardson engaged in a war of hands as well in a 178 lb. Open class bout.

Tyrell Wright of Jersey City Rec., with Jimmy “The Cat” Dupree in his corner won by a slim margin in another exciting 201 lb. Heavyweight Open bout. Wright edged out Norman Neely of Joe Grier Boxing Academy. Neely was a nationally ranked boxer as a Junior Olympian and now has moved up into the 17-34 yr. old divisions.

The last bout of the evening was as good as the first as Daryl Mack from Hudson Co. BC won by decision over Anthony Bryant of Joe Grier BA.

The heat was smoking in the ring as so many bouts provided so much heart pounding action and excitement. There was no backing down in many of these bouts they were that good. It was like a Blue Horizon crowd in Philadelphia, with the Madison Square Garden quality converged in New Jersey, with a flavor all its own. This was a terrific show with showstopper after showstopper bout.


The next NJ Diamond Gloves show is on Saturday Oct. 20th at the Knights of Columbus BC at 88 Jackson St. South River, NJ. Bouts start 6pm. The finals are on Friday Nov. 2nd 8pm at Linden High School, Linden, NJ. Come on out!

Here's an Article of the 1st night of the New Jersey Diamond Glove Tournament:


“Around The Ring”
NJ Diamond Gloves Kickoff
By Bobby Breen


The 2007 New Jersey Diamond Gloves kicked off Sat. Oct. 6th with a card held at Team Gladiator Gym in Forked River, NJ. Nine NJ Diamond Glove bouts were held along with several Junior Olympian (J.O.) bouts. The NJ Diamond Gloves began in 1933 and have run almost continuously since that time. Henry Hascup is the NJ Diamond Gloves Chairman and is also the NJ Boxing Hall of Fame President. If that isn’t enough, Henry also performs announcing duties along with the tedious and time consuming duties of running the tournament, which includes lining up all the shows, coordinating show hosts and sponsors, the matching of boxers, and a million other things that involve putting on an amateur event such as this. Henry also is a sports trivia expert and superb boxing historian. In fact, according to Henry, the first sporting event ever televised out of the State of New Jersey, was the semi-finals of the NJ Diamond Gloves on July 31, 1946 in front of over 10,000 boxing fans at Hinchcliff Stadium in Paterson, NJ. Wow, for us boxing fans today could you ever imagine that many of a crowd at an amateur boxing event?


The card had either Sub-novice or Novice boxers. Technically according to USA-Boxing rules, Sub-novice is a boxer who has not competed in a sanctioned USA-Boxing match. Novice boxers are those boxers who have competed in 10 or less sanctioned USA-Boxing matched. The Open Class boxers are those with more than 10 sanctioned USA-Boxing matches. The Open Class division gets underway later in the tournament.



The tournament officially started with Joseph Cossolini of Hudson Co. BC earning a win and advancement in the 141 Sub-Novice division. Cossedini won by decision over Vincent O’Brien of Final Round BC.

Next up in a 152 lb. Sub-novice match was another Cossolini, this time it was John, who also won by decision over Kareem Hector from Renegade BC. This was a great bout with excellent trades and exchanges with Cossolini getting the better of Hector.

The third bout of the tournament had Larry Desposito of New Breed BC winning by decision over Tom Maier Jr. of Middletown PAL. in a 152 lb. Novice bout.

Luis Sanchez of Dukers BC stopped Miguel Camacho of Lou Costello BC at 1:20 of the second round. This was a 132 lb. Novice match that had Sanchez knocking down Camacho. The very game Camacho was able to get up off the canvas and survive the mandatory eight count, but the referee stopped the bout seeing that Camacho was still not able to continue. The safety of the amateur boxers is of the utmost concern in USA-Boxing.

Steven Knight from Renegade BC also RSC’d (Referee Stops Contest) his opponent, Dakeian Moore of Jersey City Rec. in a 165 lb. Novice bout. This bout was ended at 0:39 seconds of round two.

Christopher Gachette of Elizabeth Rec. also earned a win by RSC over Deroy Beaton of Team Gladiator in a 152 lb. Sub-novice class bout. The referee stopped this contest at 1:32of the third round.

Miguel Contreras from Middletown PAL won by decision over Danny Genao of Hudson Co. BC in a 141 Novice bout. Contreras was effective most of the bout in landing points and earned not only the win and advancement in the tournament, but also “Outstanding Boxer of the Night”.

Rutger Indri of New Brunswick BC stopped Nathaniel Morillo from Knights of Columbus, South River BC in a 201 heavyweight Sub-Novice bout.The referee stopped this bout at 1:57 of round one.

The last bout of the evening was one of the most action packed as Eddie Leo from Kof C South River BC decisioned Jovan Thomas of Gladiator Boxing in a 165 lb. Sub-Novice class match up. Leo consistently pounded the body of Thomas with a steady attack. Leo displayed excellent conditioning as he was relentless in pursuing Thomas throughout the match. Thomas, much to his credit sustained the persistent Leo pursuit, but could not overcome the amount of punches Leo was able to put on him.

The NJ Diamond Gloves continue Oct. 13th at the New Brunswick, NJ Boxing Club located at 121 Jersey Ave. in New Brunswick, NJ 08901. Contact Steve Rivera (732) 846-1406. Bouts start at 7:00pm.

2008 Olympic Boxing Trials Finals
NY 132 lb. Sadam Ali Earns Olympic Team Berth!
By Bobby Breen

Sadam Ali, 132 lb. amateur boxer from Brooklyn, NY earned an Olympic Boxing Team spot on Sat. 8/25 at the Olympic Trials. Ali is the first NY’er to make the Olympic Boxing Team since Riddick Bowe did it in 1988. Ali decisioned Miguel Gonzalez of Cleveland, OH by a score of 22-10, a fairly good margin in amateur boxing scoring. USA-Boxing ranks Gonzalez #1 in the country. Ali is ranked #3 and was the 2007 National GG’s Champion and also a 2007 NY GG champ. Congratulations Sadam Ali, you earned a very high honor in the sweet science of amateur competition. Good luck in your training for Olympic Gold!!

Eliminated in the finals were 112 lb. Qa’id Muhammad of Atlantic City, NJ and 165 lb. Daniel Jacobs of Brooklyn, NY. These two area amateur boxers were highly ranked and I would have bet favored in their respective weight classes. Both are multi- Champions at the National level.

However, the competition is so great, you could box someone one day and win, and then lose to the same boxer the next day or two later. Rau’shee Warren of Cincinnati, OH stopped Muhammad in the second round. Warren is ranked #3 as a 119 lb.’er but competed in the 112 lb. class. Warren was also the 112 lb. National Champion. Jacobs lost to Shawn Estrada of Downey, CA. by a score of 24-14. Estrada was a finalist in the Pan-Am Games USA box-off. There were no results at the time of this posting on 201+ Super-Hvy. Kimdo Bethel of Albany, NY. Also, I need to make a correction. Bethel won over Mike Wilson of Central Point OR, not Mike Hunter as I incorrectly reported. Bethel beat
Mike Wilson on 8/24 by a slim decision (18-17) to advance to the finals against Mike Hunter of Las
Vegas, NV. I believe they are boxing on Sunday 8/26 in the Challenger’s bracket.

The Olympic Boxing Trials are so demanding on these young men athletes. A boxer must box between 4 and 6 times during the course of the week. The trials are a double elimination event, which means if you lose twice you are eliminated. However, if you fall into the challenger’s bracket and win in the finals, you must box again to earn a spot on the Olympic Boxing Team. For example, Sadam Ali won all four of his bouts during the competition. After boxing Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, he earned a spot in the finals Saturday and had two days off. The challengers or “losers” bracket had to continue competing to earn a trip to the finals. Should the challenger beat the winner in the finals, they must box-off in a second final on Sunday. It is an incredible feat for any amateur boxer to earn a spot on the USA Olympic Boxing Team. To all the participants from our area, great job guys!

1) 112 lb. Qa’id Muhammad (NJ) Finalist
2) 125 lb. Shemuel Pagan (NY) Semi-Finalist
3) 132 lb. Sadam Ali (NY) Olympic Team Member
4) 141 lb. Jeremy Bryan (NJ) Semi-Finalist
5) 165 lb. Daniel Jacobs (NY) Finalist
6) 165 lb. Angel Santos (NJ) Preliminary
7) 178 lb. Angel Concepcion (NJ) Semi-Finalist
8) 201 lb. Adam Willett (NY) Semi-Finalist
9) 201+lb. Kimdo Bethe l(NY) Still Awaiting Results!

Keep up the good work in and out of the ring. To Sadam Ali, again, congrats!! Train hard and represent us to the best of your ability. You earned it!! See you “around the ring”! BB

Thanks for representing NY & NJ guys, and good luck in your future endeavors. See you “around the ring”. BB




“Around The Ring”
Outdoor Show Headlines in Newark, NJ
By Bobby Breen

Saturday August 18th, 2007 an outdoor amateur show was held at the Boylan Rec. Center. Hosted by the Elite Boxing Club of Newark, NJ and the City of Newark Recreation Department this show was a huge success. 20 bouts were contested on this beautiful summer night. The ring was placed smack in the middle of South Orange Ave. in front the Boylan Rec. Center. Hot dogs, hamburgers, soda, water, and other refreshments were provided to the public free of charge. Local politicians including Mayor Cory Booker attended and made announcements from the ring to “lay down the guns and pick up the dukes”! In light of the execution style killings recently of three colleges students, the streets of Newark, NJ needs more boxing and other sporting events to help the kids in this violence-torn city overcome these obstacles to lead productive lives.

Boxing provides such opportunities. One example is young 90 lb. J.O. class Tyshawn Jones a 16 yr. old Newark, NJ resident awarded in the ring a plaque by the Mayor for recently competing and winning the National Junior Olympian title in Marquette, MI back in June. Tyshawn also won the Ringside World Championship earlier this month in Kansas City, MO. Keep up the good work Tyshawn!

20 bouts folks, what can I say. I apologize that I do not have all the results to post. I usually get the full results to lists our young boxers who deserve to have their names listed like other sports. I can report to you that Webster PAL from the Bronx, NY and Cobbscreek Warriors of Philadelphia, PA competed in this local show, along with several NJ Boxing Clubs. Some of the NJ clubs were, First Class, Renegade, Bayonne PAL, Union City BC, Dew Drop, Final Round, Ike’s Gym, Middletown PAL, Shepards BC, KO Boxing, Joe Grier BA, and of course the host club, Elite BC.

Fight of the Night was awarded to Wauzell Ellison Dew Drop BC vs. Raul Lopez of Webster PAL. This 125 lb. open contest was full of action and the decision went to Ellison. Raul Lopez was the 114 lb. National Junior Olympian Champ this year and also won the title at the Ringside World Championships earlier this month in Kansas City, MO.

On another note our local Women Boxers have faired well in National competition. The 2007 Women’s National Golden Gloves were held in Florida July 11th-14th. Crowned National Women’s Golden Gloves Champions were;

1) 101 lb. Nicole Delaney N.Y. by walkover
2) 114 lb. Sacred Downing N.J.
3) 119 lb. Jaclyn Trivilino N.Y.
4) 125 lb. Jody Ann Weller N.Y.
5) 154 lb. Jacqueline Davis N.J.

Making it to the semi-finals were; 125 lb. Ronica Jeffrey Brooklyn, NY.(NY GG ’07 Champ) 132 lb. Maimunah Holland Nyack, NY(NY GG ’07 finalist). 132 lb. Althea Martin Atlantic City, NJ. Also competing were; 119 lb. Christina Cruz NYC, NY. Wendy Casey NYC, NY. 132 lb. Judea Patrick Atlantic City, NJ. Way to go ladies!!




2008 Olympic Boxing Trials Update
8/24/07 NY/NJ Challenger Bracket Results

Two boxers from our area advanced in the challenger’s bracket while another lost and was eliminated. 112 lb. Qa’id Muhammad Atlantic City, NJ won over Bruno Escalante of Waimanolo, HI by decision 29-20. 125 lb. Shemuel Pagan Brooklyn, NY decisioned Rico Ramos Los Angeles, CA. 12-8. 141 lb. Jeremy Bryan Clifton, NJ was decisioned by Danny Garcia Philadelphia, PA. This loss was the second in the double elimination tournament for Bryan. Bryan defeated Garcia in the preliminary bout decisively 23-14. Bryan then lost to #1 ranked and US National Champion Javier Molina from Commerce, CA. Bryan came back in his third bout to defeat Andre Sherard Milwaukee, WI. who is ranked #10 in the country and was a 2007 US Championship quarterfinalist. Bryan then had to face off a second time against Garcia in the challenger’s bracket to stay alive in the tournament. Garcia was the 2006 US National Champion.

This is a tough break for Bryan, a two-time National Golden Glove Champion, multi-NJ GG and Diamond Glove Champion, and 2007 Mid-Western Trials Champion. The 21 yr. old Bryan trains out of Joe Grier Boxing Academy in Paterson, NJ. Sometimes the draw can be a factor in these important eliminators. Bryan drew Javier Molina early and suffered a loss. This can mentally challenge the boxer, to have to catch up and gain back momentum. This can be extremely difficult to overcome. Bryan did well against the odds, how many boxers make it to the Olympic Trials? 88 in all in which only 11 weight classes will be selected. That is less than 100 in the thousands
of amateur boxers across the country. Jeremy Bryan has nothing to be ashamed about and has a lot to be proud of. He has had a stellar amateur career and can go on to the professional ranks with success if he chooses.
Good Luck Champ! BB

The Olympic Boxing Trials are underway this week in Houston, TX. Several area amateur boxers are vying for a spot to compete in Beijing, China in the Summer of 2008. NY USA-Boxing Metro’s former Chief of Officials, David Lladro is in Houston doing officiating duties. As you can see from the results listed above our own NY/NJ boxers are doing well. Brooklyn’s Sadam Ali 132 lb. has won all three of his preliminary bouts which places him in the winner’s bracket. This is a double elimination tournament, which means you have to lose twice to be out of the running. The preliminary’s establish the Winner’ s/Challenger’s brackets.

What is unclear to me is do the Winner’s face off against the Challenger’s bracket to determine the finalists? I would guess that may be the way it works, providing the Challenger’s a second chance to make the team, while testing the Winner’s bracket finalists in keeping their spot for the 2008 Olympic Boxing Team. We can find out the answer to that question this weekend when the finals take place. If memory serves me correctly, in the 1964 Tokyo Olympic Boxing Trials, the Heavyweight finalist was Buster Mathis, but due to injury (I think a broken hand) Joe Frazier, who was the alternate, filled in and won the gold. So, anything can happen boxing fans. Let’s analyze for a minute the factors at work in a tournament such as this. These boxers may have to box 2 and 3 days in a row, and then box again after a day or two rest. It is difficult enough to train, prepare and box for one bout, but a tournament is a tough schedule for the boxing athlete. Imagine boxing some of the top amateur boxers in the country, and barring injury, not to mention being away from home, travelling, keeping mentally prepared, it is a very demanding process. Some of these boxers may not have their regular trainer/coach with them, so another factor is performing at your best, against the best competition, without the benefit or your regular cornermen. These boxers are nothing less than phenomenal, believe me!

As I look over the results (researched from the USA-Boxing website) what stands out to me is the quality of boxing going on. These boxers are all
products of LBC’s (Local Boxing Committee’s) from across the country. In NY, there is the NY USA-Boxing Metro (NYC, and vicinity, Duchess, Nassau, Orange, Putnam, Rockland, Suffolk, Sullivan, and Westchester Co.’s). The NJ LBC is almost the entire State of NJ (excluding parts of South Jersey and the Trenton, NJ area which is part of Philidelphia, PA.). Our boxers at the
Olympic Boxing Trials are the direct products of these LBC’s which incorporate all the Boys Clubs, PAL’s, and other community and neighborhood
boxing clubs, with the Trainers and Coaches, who put in such long thankless hours not only keeping these kids off the streets and teaching them life
skills, but some get to compete at the highest level of competition, the Olympic Trials and hopefully in the Olympics themselves. These boxers all come from the Golden Gloves, Silver Gloves, NJ Diamond Gloves, and other such local/regional tournaments.

As stated, Sadam Ali 132 lb. boxer from Brooklyn, NY looks very well going into the winners bracket this weekend winning all three of his preliminary
bouts. Ali, the 2007 National GG Champion beat Jerry Belmontes from Corpus Christi, TX who was a finalist at the US Championships. Angel Santos 165 lb. Newark, NJ lost to Fernando Guerrero Salisbury, MD. Guerrero was the 2007 US Champion and is ranked #2 in the country. Angel Concepcion E. Orange, NJ lost his first bout to Chris Downs. Downs was the 2007 US Champion and is ranked #1 in the country. Downs also won a Bronze medal at this year’s Pan-Am Games. Concepcion came back to win his 2nd and 3rd bouts. The third bout, his second win, was over 2007 National GG Champ Siju Shabazz from Las Cruces, NM. Daniel Jacobs 165 lb. Brooklyn, NY won over Shawn Porter from Cuyahoga Falls, OH. Porter won the 2007 National GG’s.

So, you can see our best amateur boxers are going against the best amateurs
from everywhere.

The standings as of today 8/23/07:
1) 112 lb. Qa’id Muhammad(NJ) 2-1
2) 125 lb. Shemuel Pagan(NY) 2-1
3) 132 lb. Sadam Ali(NY) 3-0
4) 141 lb. Jeremy Bryan(NJ) 2-1
5) 165 lb. Daniel Jacobs(NY) 2-1
6) 165 lb. Angel Santos(NJ) 0-2
7) 178 lb. Angel Concepcion(NJ) 2-1
8) 201 lb. Adam Willett(NY) 2-1
9) 201+lb. Kimdo Bethel(NY) 2-1

All of the NY/NJ boxers at the Olympic Trials are still in the mix except for Angel Santos 165 lb. from Newark, NJ. Santos lost 2 bouts and was thus
eliminated. His 2nd bout was to Zach Hardrick Ft. Carson, CO and was on a score of 23-21, which was a squeaker and sounds like it could have went
either way. One other good boxer from the New England Region is 152 lb.

Demetrius Andrade Providence, RI. Andrade is a 2007 National GG Champ, Silver Medalist at the 2007 Pan-Am Games and currently ranked #1 in the
country and is 3-0 at the Olympic Trials.
Considering all the boxers from NY/NJ over the years it is difficult to guess who could make the Olympic Boxing Team. Not since ’88 Riddick Bowe
(NY) ’84 Mark Breland (NY) ’72 Reggie Jones (NJ) and ’68 Sammy Goss, has NY/NJ had an Olympian on the USA Olympic Boxing Team. Pagan, Ali, Bryan, and Jacobs, are all highly ranked and regarded, as are the other boxers. We will find out this weekend folks, stay tuned! See you “around the ring”! BB




“Around The Ring”

Ringside Finals Include Local NJ/NY Amateur Boxers

By Bobby Breen

8/7/07. The Ringside Boxing Equipment World Championship finals were held on Saturday Aug. 4th at the KCI Expo Center in Kansas City, MO. After three days of competition involving over 1200 amateur boxers from all over the country plus Ireland and Canada the tournament moved into the championship round. Six (6), yes six boxing rings each had roughly 31-32 bouts each for the championships. This is an incredible site folks! Boxing non-stop from 11am until almost 6pm. A brief intermission included a ceremony for all walkover champions. The weigh-ins were conducted at 7am. That’s some 180 bouts with some 360 boxers. Quite an undertaking I must say. I wouldn’t believe it without seeing it. Ringside runs a great tournament. This being the seventh year they are getting good at it. John Brown (who I do not know personally) runs Ringside and aside from being a good businessman, from what I can tell is genuinely a decent person who cares about amateur boxing. He supposedly started Ringside in his living room and since 1977 has brought it to the forefront of boxing equipment. He is seen onsite throughout the tournament speaking to the coordinators, working corners for his boxers and thanking the officials and those others that make the tournament a success. Seems like a regular guy. The Ringside staff does a magnificent job assisting the numerous competitors, coaches, officials, ringside doctors, etc. All equipment is provided by Ringside. They set-up the arena, clean the arena. They even vacuum the rings in the morning prior to the start of boxing each day! I thought that was impressive. I observed an injured boxer in one bout and medical attention was superb. Doctors worked the incident professionally (which appeared to be a severe ankle fracture after a knockdown) and medical assistance was present and prompt and the injured boxer transported to the hospital for further treatment. This was all handled with no interruption to the other action in the other five boxing rings. I also observed a ringside doctor attending to a cut on the chin of a boxer and doing a suture job on the spot. These are seasoned boxing people doing their duties and it was quite interesting to observe.

2007 Ringside Championships Finals Results NJ/NY Boxers World Champions:

1) Bobby Diaz, Jr. 75 lb. J.O. Brooklyn, NY
2) Idrissa Kamara 112 lb. J.O. Staten Island, NY
3) Raul Lopez 119 lb. J.O. Bronx, NY
4) Pedro Sosa 141 lb. J.O. Bronx, NY
5) Marcus Brown 165 lb. J.O. Staten Island, NY
6) Dennis Douglin 165 Open Middletown, NJ **

Tidbits: I could not confirm Dennis Douglin 165 Open of New Breed BC, N.J. winning in the finals but was told he was the winner. I saw his bout from another ring and they announced the winner while I was caught up with the action at the ring I was at. Raul Lopez looked excellent all tournament. He dominated his opponents and added a Ringside World Championship to his already 2007 accomplishments, National JO Champion, National Silver Gloves Champion, and Empire State Games Gold Medallist. Lopez is trained by his Dad
Marcos at the Webster PAL in the Bronx, NY.
Marcus Brown looked good too winning decisively in his finals bout. Keep an eye on these boxers. They are ours and yours future champs. They train hard,
stay in the gym and off the streets. Brown and Lopez are only 16 yrs. old. Look for them in the NY Daily News GG’s next year. I could not at the time of this article learn of the results of Tyshawn Jones 95 lb. J.O. Newark, NJ who also made it to the finals. Filix Rodriguez 106 lb. J.O. Millville, NJ got off to a great start in round one in his final bout and looked to be on his way to the Ringside WC. His opponent Ray Ximenez of Dallas, TX. came on strong in rounds two and three to take it away from the game Rodriguez. The
level of competition is tremendous. These young boxers box and fight hard. It is truly amazing to see the coaches and trainers work with these youth
and see the results in their performances. Sportsmanship, respect and courtesy is the norm in dealing with these young boxers. These coaches and
boxers need to be recognized for their efforts and that is why I try to report on these type of amateur boxing events.

The Ringside World Championships is a great tournament to test yourself against national and international competition. Anyone can enter. Some
advantages of participating are traveling to a big tournament and boxing in a big area in front of a large crowd. I cannot think of any disadvantages
except for the fact it is not a qualifier for a National Ranking. For example, if a young JO boxer (11-16 yrs. old) or any class boxer wins at the
Ringside Tournament, they do not earn “points” for the National Rankings. When a boxer competes in National competitions such as the National GG’s,
Silver Gloves, National JO Championships, U.S. National Championships, Pan-Am, World or Goodwill Games, they earn points if they advance and/or win
at these tournaments and those points count toward the USA-Boxing National Rankings. Aside from that it is a fantastic competition and a well-organized
tournament worth checking out. They also have a Master’s Class in which boxer’s can compete against someone near their age in the over 35 yrs. of age division. Also it offers the opportunity for officials to officiate a large tournament and get some condensed training as an official and this is useful to newer and younger officials who may not get selected to the above-mentioned National Tournaments. There is a combination of
well-seasoned officials and newer officials and in between working this event. That’s it for now, see you “around the ring”. BB

Ringside Tournament Underway This Week

By Bobby Breen



The Ringside Boxing Equipment Tournament began Wednesday August 1st. This is the 7th year in the running and it is billed as the biggest amateur boxing tournament in the world. I believe they are correct. Most large National and International Amateur Boxing Tournaments run with three (3) boxing rings simultaneously. I’ve been to National and Regional Olympic boxing trials and this takes the cake. Ringside, try six (6) boxing rings going on at once. This is a major undertaking of magnificent magnitude. Over 1300 boxers, hundreds of coaches, over fifty officials, a team of ringside physicians, not to mention dozens and upward of hundreds of support people. Boxing teams, coaches, boxers, officials, family and friends of such have surrounded the KCI Expo Center in Kansas City, MO. for four days of boxing. Tuesday July 31st began with Coaches and Officials meetings and registration for all participants. A USA-Boxing Officials clinic was held as well. All the prep was in place to house, feed, weigh, examine, and have these entire competitors box. The first day over 750 boxers were weighed in and given the standard pre-bout physicals. This is amazing in that if you are Joe-average boxing fan in NYC and you go to a NY Daily News Golden Gloves show you will most likely see some 15 bouts, 30 boxers, and the show would normally begin at 8pm and end somewhere around 10:30pm. The boxers and officials and those running the show probably start sometime around 5pm for such a show. Now imagine 6 boxing rings with some 25-30 bouts in each session of which there are two sessions a day, the morning and evening sessions.

The second day over 650 boxers were weighed and processed and the third day over 400 were conducted. I haven’t seen an operation like this since I was inducted into the U.S. Army. That’s what it looked like. Boxers of all shapes, sizes, weights, ethnic and social backgrounds, from almost every state, urban/suburban, country, town, inner-city and outer-banks are here. You see boxers and coaches everywhere. Some running, doing their road work in teams. It is truly amazing. Boxing morning, noon, and night.

Some area boxers have competed the last few days. This tournament is just too big to cover so I can only report what I have seen or learned while being here. Hey, I can only watch one ring at a time! This article will only cover the boxers from our NY/NJ Metro area. Got to see Staten Island’s Marcus Brown 165 lbs. in action yesterday and today. Brown, fresh off his Gold Medal performance at last weekends Empire State Games, won impressively last night with a RSC-H (Referee Stops Contest Head) over Alexander Lusby from St. Paul, MN. Brown dumped Lusby to the canvas with a hard straight left hand ending the bout at 1:02 in the first round. In Friday’s session Brown won by decision earning a berth in Saturdays’ (Aug. 4th) Finals. Marcus trains at the Park Hill BC in Staten Island under Gary Starks. Coming up with an RSC win the first day was Joel Delapaz 178 lb Novice Atlantic City, NJ. Winning Thursday Aug. 2nd Jose Delarosa 152N Woodhaven, NY and Lavarn Harvell 178 lbs.Open Atlantic City, NJ. I do not know how these boxers faired the third day of competition. Losing on Thursday Aug. 2nd Ricky Taylor 152 Masters Division of Weehawkin, NJ, Joseph Valentino 141 lb. Novice Bronx, NY. Joining Marcus Brown with wins on Friday Aug. 3rd (which were the semi-final rounds) and earning a trip to the finals Sat. Aug. 4th ; National JO Champion Tyshawn Jones 95 lb. Newark, NJ, Marcos Suarez 106 lb JO Bronx, NY, Raul Lopez 119 lbs. JO Bronx, NY (who also won an Empire SG’s Gold last week), Marvin Johnson, Jr. 125 lb. JO Millville, NJ, Eddie Gomez 152 lb. JO Bronx, NY. Both Lopez and Gomez won by first round RSC. Making it to and losing in the semi’s were Amiyh Jones 119 Novice Atlantic City, NJ.

Like Father like son, Bobby Diaz Sr. and Jr. of Brooklyn competed in the tournament. Bobby Jr. won and will compete in the finals at the 75 lb. JO class. Bobby Sr. didn’t fair too well. Making it to the semi-finals in his Master’s 201+ Super-heavy weight class Bobby looked more in condition for the hot dog eating contest at Coney Island. Only kidding Bobby, but you did tell me when you weighed in the scale registered “to be continued”. Bobby fought a hard bout and lost by decision. He now gets to focus full attention on coaching his son in the finals. Good luck to you both!

Seen Around The Ring: Duane Bobick 1972 Munich Games Olympian and 1971 Pan-Am Games Gold medalist. Bobick was 4-0 as an amateur against the Russians, not an easy feat in the early 70’s. He also was 1-1 against the great Teofilo Stevenson the heavyweight sensation from Cuba who dominated the Olympic Boxing scene for several cycles circa ‘70’s/80’s. In fact Bobick’s win against Stevenson was in the Pan-Am Games. As a pro Bobick had wins over now Pro-ref Randy Neuman, Chuck Wepner, Scott LeDoux and a loss at the Garden to Ken Norton. Bobick was doing officiating duties at ring #1. After a controversial stoppage of a bout by a referee I observed the losing coach complaining to officials and tournament officials. What I next saw was interesting. The coach reviewing a hand held cam-recorder from a friend who taped the bout to exactly see the call by the referee and showing it to tournament officials. With professional sports adoption of instant replay it made me wonder what stage boxing is at seeing such a thing in amateur or professional boxing. Well, got to get back “around the ring”. BB

“Around The Ring”
NY/NJ Amateur Boxing Summer Scene
By Bobby Breen

It’s been a while since my last submission to Trufanboxing.com and one would think not much is happening with amateur boxing. Contrary to that thought a lot has been happening. Let me back up a month or two and recap some goings on in the NY/NJ metro area amateur boxing scene.

MAY- Got to see a Master’s show at Trinity Boxing Club in lower Manhattan. Good show, good time. Unfortunately not too many Master’s bouts were held. The Master’s Division in USA-Amateur Boxing, which is Olympic style boxing, is a class for Men 35 years of age or over, who compete against each other and one opponent cannot be 10 years over/under the other opponent. They box 3 rounds of two minutes each. Additionally, there are a few other differences from the regular amateur boxing divisions/classes in that the Master’s use 12 oz. Gloves in all bouts (the regular classes use 10 oz. up to 152s. lb. 12 oz gloves for 165 lbs. and up) and there are some stricter medical examinations for the Master boxers. You’d be surprised at some of the boxers in this division, some who can lace up the gloves and throw some leather. At the Trinity BC show two Master’s bouts were held and they were quite competitive.
The first bout featured Heavyweight action as Clarence Hill from Elmont BC boxed Stephen Allen from Trinity BC. This was a decent match up as both boxers performed very well in front of the almost 150-200 spectators who filled the club to catch some amateur boxing on a nice Spring night. Allen looked very strong taking round one being the busier boxer on the outset. Hill came on in rounds two and three with good trades by both boxers. It was Hill pressing the action out-hustling Allen on the way to a decision by points. For thirty-seven years of age Hill put on a good show earning a hard fought decision.
The second bout featured two boxers from the Trinity BC team in a 178 lbs. class match up. Kevin Ryan boxed Jose Mata to a decision that was at times like a sparring match. This is common when two boxers from the same gym face off with each other. Both boxers looked good, with decent exchanges but it was Ryan who appeared to be the better boxer and was judged so on the official scorecards. There were several other bouts held as exhibitions as some of the pre-matched Master’s bouts did not go off as scheduled.
This night of amateur boxing was also a fundraiser for the New Bed-Sty Boxing Club in Brooklyn a more than worthy cause. Martin Snow and his Brother John run Trinity BC which is located in lower Manhattan just below ground zero at 110 Greenwich St. The Snow Brothers were both amateur boxers who trained under revered and well-respected trainer/cut man Al Galvin and his long time partner in crime, ahem, I mean Boxing, Bobby Jackson. That was at the old Gramercy Gym circa early 80’s. Martin made it to the NY Daily News GG finals in 1986. The concept for Trinity BC is “anybody can learn to box”. Which is special, whether you are beginner, a serious contender, want to get in shape, or a suit and tie boxing enthusiast. They have some great space, a fantastic atmosphere, and trainers from both the amateur and professional ranks. Their website is www.trinityboxingclub.com. Check them out and look for more Master’s amateur Boxing shows in the future.

JUNE- This month had the NYC area box offs for the upcoming Empire State Games. There was a series of shows held at Gleason’s Gym in Brooklyn. On June 19th boxers in the 201 Open division competed. There were three bouts. With some of the top Golden Glover’s and Nationally ranked amateur boxers competing in Olympic trial preliminaries the field of competition is lean this year.

JULY- Got to see an amateur card in Forked River, NJ this past weekend. Good show. Appearing for the first time as National JO Champion 90 lb. class Tyshawn Jones of Elite BC Newark, NJ. Only problem was he faced the #2 ranked boxer in his class, Tranawe Williams of Ring One BC from New Haven, CT. What a great bout. Two very young and gifted amateur boxers who put on a boxing exhibition of skill and class. Williams took the decision. No hometown ringers in the house that day. Keep an eye on these two very promising and exciting future Champions at any level they compete at.
