New Jersey Golden Gloves has announced its tournament schedule for the 2012 amateur boxing championship, including one show in Bergen County.
More than 200 boxers between the ages of 17 and 34 will compete in nine preliminary bouts throughout the state, beginning Friday, Feb. 24 at Brick Township High School. The winners will advance to the state finals, to be held Saturday, April 7 at the Prudential Center in Newark.
Dan Doyle, president of New Jersey Golden Gloves, said this year marks the first time in the franchise’s history that the finals are to be held in such a large venue.
“We are so excited to be holding our 2012 Tournament of Champions in the Prudential Center, giving our amateur boxers a chance to box in a large arena much like the pros,” Doyle, of Long Branch, said. “We hope the public will come out and support these athletes. They have dedicated at least the better part of a year to training for this prestigious tournament.”
