Here in MI, it is both. We had almost 100 boxers enter the East MI GG and almost 200 enter the West MI GG. It is mostly men with about 15-20 women out of the nearly 300 entries. It looks as if boxing is making a comeback. Our first night of the West MI GG had nearly 2,000 fans in attendance. Not bad for the preliminaries. It will be standing room only for the finals. The East MI GG changed locations and their attendance is way up over what it has been for years. Their District Finals almost challenged the West sides #'s for the first time in many years. It is going to make the State semi-finals and finals be awesome. Great bouts and great crowds. Everyone wants to be a part of the Golden Gloves because of its popularity.

Dennis wrote:There are some good open fighters over there that should make for some very interesting matchups on Friday and Saturday. The 165# class should be very competitive. 152 - Bernal v Castanon will be a good one with the winner facing the winner of Barnes v Banks. Should be another good weight class. Others to keep your eye on for competitive bouts in the semis and finals are 141 and 125 pounds. 132 will be great just to see two teammates battle against each other in Flores vs. Aleem. I can't wait. 119 - Ernie Garza may go all the way to Nationals without breaking a sweat as it looks like he will remain uncontested. Maybe not though. One of the guys that boxed at 125 might want to move down and give him some work. 178 - looks like McNutt is the favorite here.
