Veterans Day

Posted: November 11, 2014 by ringsidemike in Daily News Corner

On behalf of the Board of Directors for the Gulf Boxing Association, I would like to honor all of my fellow Veterans today, the 11th day of the 11th month of 2014.  It is time to recognize all who have served and those who are still serving our very grateful Nation.  We also remember those who have made the ultimate sacrifice in the defense or our freedom.  Please join me in rendering a great “Thank You” to all Veterans.

God Bless all of you.

2016 Olympic Games

Posted: November 5, 2014 by ringsidemike in Daily News Corner

For USA Boxing Elite Men, the process to qualify for the 2016 Olympic Games has been published here:  http://www.teamusa.org/~/media/USA_Boxing/Documents/16%20Oly%20Procedures/16%20SOG%20BOX%20Athlete%20-%20MEN.pdf

Here is the summary:

The Pathway to the Podium begins at the “2015 WSB and World Championships Team Trial”:  http://www.teamusa.org/USA-Boxing/Features/2014/October/28/The-Pathway-to-the-Podium-to-Begin-at-the-WSB-and-World-Championships-Team-Trial

In Late 2015 or Early 2016, USA Boxing will host the “2016 Men’s Olympic Qualification Team Trial.”   This will be a double elimination bracket with 8 boxers per weight class.  The eight spots must be earned via winning or being runner-up at one of six different US National Tournament events (some yet TBD.)  One spot will go to the winners at the upcoming 2015 WSB & World Championships Team Trial, December 1-5 in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

The 2015 WSB & World Championships Team Trial in Chattanooga is a Men’s ELITE event, in which boxers will compete without headgear and gauze handwraps will not be allowed as boxers must use valpeau.  Boxers must have 10 documented bouts in their passbooks to compete.  The Elite division is for boxers aged 18-40 years old, thus in order to compete in this event boxers must have been born between August 6th, 1975 – November 30th, 1996.

Additionally, USA Boxing encourages boxers’ personal coaches to stay with them through the entire qualification process and will conduct an AIBA Coaches certification clinic in Chattanooga.

Gulf LBC boxers who believe they have what it takes to compete at this ELITE level may be eligible for some support from the Association.  If you are interested in competing in this event, contact Gulf President Juan Moya and/or Gulf Secretary Michael Campbell ASAP.
