A little bit of information regarding the “Battle of the Universe” Amateur Boxing Tournament which is being hosted by the GAUTHIER’S BOXING CLUB at the Crowley Rice Arena in Crowley, Louisiana and why it is a very important amateur boxing tournament:
- This tournament is the first qualifier to enter the 2015 Ringside World Championships (August 5th through the 8th) that will be held at the Independence Events Center in Independence, MO.
- It provides a great opportunity for local amateur boxers from North Louisiana to receive positive recognition on a national and international platform.
And now, getting back to the question of which boxing clubs, or boxers, from North Louisiana has plans to participate in this tournament?
Here are four possible amateur boxers, with their club affiliation, who I believe could advance to the world championships if they choose to participate:
- Bobby Adams, of the Paxton Youth Boxing Club, in the 201+ weight division.
- Quantavious Green, currently unattached, in the 141 weight division.
- Toby Brook, of the Dement Brothers Old School Boxing Club, in the 78 or 80 weight division.
- Gregory L. Soileau, of the West Monroe Boxing Club, in the 178 weight division.
