TO ALL THOSE WHO LOVE BOXING…TO ALL THOSE WHO KNOW & LOVE KENNY WELDON:

All funds raised will be for the benefit of Kenny Weldon. Kenny dedicated his life to the sport of boxing and helping struggling youth.

THIS WILL BE A SURPRISE, SO PLEASE DO NOT TELL HIM.

As many of you know, Kenny Weldon is not in good health. So, right after he turns 70 years old, it is time to recognize and thank him for everything he has done.

If you would like to help in any way or have any questions whatsoever, you can contact Misty Smith (Kenny’s daughter) @ (832) 984-5071. We hope to see everyone there!! Thank you!!

USA Boxing’s Pathway to the Podium

Posted: May 29, 2015 by ringsidemike in Daily News Corner

Information from USA Boxing on the Olympic Trials Qualifiers:  http://www.teamusa.org/USA-Boxing/Features/2015/February/01/The-Pathway-to-the-Podium

Briefly, in order to compete in the USA Boxing Olympic Trials, a male boxer must earn his spot in the tournament by finishing in the top 2 at an Olympic Trials Qualifier tournament.  Two have already been held, with THREE more remaining.  Female boxers must finish in the top 3 at one of the TWO upcoming Qualifiers.  Here’s the schedule:

June 22-27 USA Boxing Men’s & Women’s Olympic Trials Qualifier I in Colorado Springs, Colorado (link)
Sept 7-11 USA Boxing Men’s & Women’s Olympic Trials Qualifier II in Baltimore, Maryland
Oct 25-31 USA Boxing Men’s Olympic Trials Qualifier III in Memphis, Tennessee
Oct 25-31 USA Boxing Women’s Olympic Trials in Memphis, Tennessee

Gulf LBC has already qualified two boxers for the Women’s Olympic Trials.  Congratulations to Marlen Esparza & Virginia Fuchs!!

But Gulf wants to qualify more boxers for both the Men’s and Women’s Trials!

Your Gulf Boxing Association Board of Directors has discussed the possibility of stipends being provided for Elite athletes wishing to compete in these events.  It was decided that, limited stipends would be provided for each event on a case by case basis.  Any Elite Gulf Athletes who wish to receive assistance to compete in these events, should formally request a monetary stipend from the Gulf LBC by sending a letter (e-mail) to the Gulf Board of Directors.  Contact Us link.

Each request will be reviewed and evaluated by the BoD or committee.  Only athletes who demonstrate potential to perform at an Elite level and earn a spot in the Olympic Trials will be supported.  Criteria will include, but not be limited to, past performances in local, regional and especially national tournaments, National rankings, boxing experience and championships won.

Note that to only boxers born between January 1, 1976 and December 31, 1997 are eligible to compete in these events.

The Pathway to the Podium deadline is coming up on June 14th for the Olympic Trials Qualifier event in Colorado Springs.  The cutoff date to receive the $99/rate at the host “Hotel Elegante” is June 12th.

Gulf JO Team at Regionals

Posted: May 3, 2015 by ringsidemike in Daily News Corner
ATTENTION:  JO Team Meeting for Nationals in Charleston, West Virginia, will be held Friday at 6:30pm at Fighter Nation

First of all I want to congratulate all boxers that will be advancing to National and also to congratulate all boxers that competed in this tournament for a job well done. I want to thank all officials, coaches and parents that traveled with us on this trip to make it successful.  I want to thank Baldomero Fernandez from Houston Boxing Gym for making signs for both vans representing Gulf Association.
Thanks to everyone for working as a team and the team effort was tremendous.  The boxers were great and I guarantee this was something the boxers will never forget and they will return to their gym and train harder to become champions.
Words cannot express how proud I am of our Gulf team and how proud I am to be part of this organization.
