It’s been a pleasure to be in Salt Lake City for the Golden Gloves Tournament of Champions. Great Vegan food, decent weather and my 10th National title. As my coach would say…the cake was baked…the icing was the 2nd place team finish for KC Golden Gloves! In the history of KC Golden Gloves, it is our best finish. Pretty cool. I am off to Puerto Rico with the USA Men’s Boxing Team. More adventures to come. Highlights from last night are below. Gotta fly…later.

TURNER BOXING ACADEMY BOXERS SHINE AT 78TH ANNUAL KANSAS CITY GOLDEN GLOVES
By John Brown
TBA entered 16 well trained, dedicated athletes into the tournament and 11 walked away with championship belts, jackets and memories that will last a lifetime.
These young boys and girls work on their skills in this most difficult of all sports for months and years and look forward annually to showcasing their skills at the prestigious Kansas City Golden Gloves tournament.
Leading the charge was Cam F. Awesome, who drove all night on Thurs. from the USA training camp in Colo. Springs so that he could perform in front of his home town fans and friends. The Charismatic and flamboyant Awesome who is an 11 time National Champion just won the USA Boxing National championships in Spokane and will represent the USA in 19 planned international competitions in 2013. The “Ali-like” Awesome stopped both of his opponents winning his spot on the Kansas City squad that will move on to the National Golden Gloves tournament May 12-18 in Salt Lake City. Cam hopes to win his third National Golden Gloves title.
Dropping down 160 pounds all the way to 70 found nine year old Tiahna Pickett facing off against Faith Blair of Trenton. Tiahna used her sound fundamentals to outclass her opponent and certainly made her father/coach one proud man.
Also representing the superior gender was athlete/scholar JoAnna Perez weighing in at 125. This sweet, giving(she helps coach the younger boxers at TBA) 17 year old turns into a Tyson-like savage(her nickname) when the bell rings. Her aggressive style and superb conditioning allowed her to pound out a decision for the tough Ashley Daniel. JoAnna has medical school in her future which is great because we can always use more ringside docs.
Misael Reyes who won the 123 lb class last year certainly surprised his coaches by repeating again this your to win the belt. Misael has not been able to train as much as necessary due to work and school. Sometimes mental toughness and a huge heart can get you to the finish line…Misael won a hard fought decision over the ever rugged Fidel Cervantes. He made his coaches very proud. Such mental toughness is not so abundant in today’s youth.
Edgar Javalera won his 4th straight championship using his outstanding skills in the 132 pound class. Edgar has a very good chance to win a national title.
Just turned 17 Marcus Davidson won the tough 152 pound class with three excellent performances. This young boxer/puncher is becoming a force to deal with and should have a bright future in his sport of choice. His killer smile and general kind persona will lead him to good things.
Marcell Davidson(Marcus’ brother) still in his first year of boxing annexed the novice title in the 123 lb class as did Anthony Adams at 141. Anthony’s father drives his son to Turner four days a week from Raytown and it paid off.
Devon Campbell, Sergio Flores, and Justin Mace also won belts in the 15-16 yr. old class.
For the fourth year in a row the Turner Boxing Academy won the Open Division Team Championship
As much fun it is to win it does not surpass the feelings of pride that we coaches derive from knowing that we might be helping shape the lives of many young people through this crazy sport of boxing.
