The Gulf Grieves

Posted: September 22, 2016 by ringsidemike in Daily News Corner

We all have very heavy hearts as we have lost one of our coaches and best friends.  Roy Ortega Sr. has passed away unexpectedly and far too young.  He filled our lives with joy and happiness and leaves a void that will be difficult to mend.  Roy was a coach and mentor to the outstanding athletes at Elite Boxing Academy and will be missed tremendously.

We extend our condolences as our thoughts are with Coach Willy Boyd of the Ringsters boxing club.  Willy’s wife Wanda Boyd has passed away after battling with multiple strokes, a heart attack & pneumonia.  May she Rest in Peace, and we offer our support for our brother as he copes with the loss of the love of his life.

GWS is nearly 1 year old!!  The success of the Texas Women’s Championships was incredible and noticed by many both in the region and nationally.  For 2017, we promised a 3-day tournament and this event WILL be the biggest women’s event in the United States.

To continue our growth and accomplishments, we must begin the process of planning NOW.  For this to happen, 1. GWS must organize and solidify its structure and reporting to the Gulf Boxing Association, 2. Leadership roles must be established and responsibilities understood, 3. ALL members must contribute to sub-committees.

The Gulf Women of Strength is a committee established by the Gulf LBC Board of Directors which is under authority of the Gulf LBC Board of Governors (Boxing Clubs) and a sub-division of USA Boxing, an established not-for-profit organization.  As such, the Board and its committees operate under rules outlined by the USA Boxing and Gulf LBC bylaws.
