Here are the results of last weekends Kansas City Golden Gloves. I lost in the finals of novice 132 to the same guy that has beaten me three times before then! Gotta get better.

I dont know, but on a national level, is there anyone here that can/will make a splash on the national scene?

Novice
119- Thomas Higgins (Authentic) Champion RSC 3rd
125- Ruden Calderon (Authentic) Champion RSC 3rd
132- Kyle Duke (Turner) Champion Dec
141- Stephen Koesterer (Whatsoever) Champion - RSC 1st
152- Donnell Hinson (Authentic) Champion- Dec
165- Sonny Jenkins (Authentic) Champion Dec
165 R- Kenny Hoffman (Golds Gym) Champion Dec
178- Tim Bejan (Golds Gym) Champion Dec
201- Austen Ford (Golds Gym) Champion Dec
201+- Toure Biggins (Community) RSC 1st

Open
132- Spencer Ward (Underground) Champion Dec
141- Dillon Cook (Seneca) Champion Dec
152- Ray Rivera (Whatsoever) Champion Dec
165- Chris thomas (Whatsoever) Champion RSC 3rd
178- Josh Rubio (Turner) Champion Dec
201- Jeremiah Graziano Champion RSC 3rd

Rivera and Graziano, from what I hear, has the best chance to place/medal from my area. Thoughts?

Rivera has a lot of amateur experience, although he hasn't been around in a while - couple of years or so, I think.

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.


Yah Dennis, I was at the East MI GG finals, the crowd was pretty crazy, especially the Saginaw fans. There were a considerable amount of novice fighters, but the open class seemed a little bare.

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.

More comments about MGG. 119 - Ernie Garza will get some work. Tommy Tyler move down to 119 and Robert Bell entered as the runner-up for the East side. They will box each other with the winner boxing Garza in the finals. 178 - I forgot about Griffin moving up from 165. It should be a good battle with him against Christian Thomas in the semi-finals and the winner will go up against Kyle McNutt. 201-Kyle Delgado will battle Jarvis Edwards with the winner going up against my son, Jordan Shimmell, in the state finals.

Who is fighting at 125? I know Mauricio Ortiz from Pontiac Azteca is fighting at 125. He went to Nationals in Denver a few years back.
