Ladies Light up the Peninsula

(AUG 25) Saturday brings the second installment of “Beautiful Brawlers” at the Moose Lodge in Pacifica. As the only all-female amateur card of its kind, pugilists from Southern California, Nevada, Arizona, and even Georgia will arrive in the Peninsula to participate in what has been an historic summer for women’s boxing.

“This year it’s an even better event,” said tournament director Blanca Gutierrez. “Martha Salazar, Eliza Olson, and I have been bringing these girls in for camps all year and we think we have a great collection of talent and matchups for Saturday.”

On the heels of the first Olympic women’s boxing competition in London, Gutierrez is optimistic about the future of the sport, especially with the success of American women like gold medalist Claressa Shields and bronze medalist Marlen Esparza.

“We’re banking on building a foundation for the next Olympics here,” Gutierrez said. “I’m not sure if that Olympic tournament will advance the sport by itself, but it can only help. Since the gymnastics program has winners who are 14 and 15, we need to have a great foundation for our boxers, too.”

Several tantalizing matchups are on the 19-bout docket. For starters, 2012 National PAL champion Casey Morton takes on 2012 Mex Games gold medalist Paola Estrada at a 115-pound limit. In a 125-pound pairing of two of the best boxers in the region, Tatiana Almaraz of Concord’s Old School Boxing fights Sacramento’s Brenda Gutierrez of Caballero’s Gym. Also, 2012 Ringside champion Danika Lara of El Centro travels north from Southern California to fight Avenal King’s Gym standout Marisol Lopez, the reigning 2012 U.S. Junior Olympic gold medalist at 106 pounds.

Tickets are $20 at the door. Doors open at 2 p.m., and the first fight is at 3 p.m. Longtime Northern California promoter and women’s boxing supporter Jerry Hoffman will be the ring announcer. There will also be a special appearance by World Championships silver medalist Raquel Miller of San Francisco, who accomplished the feat at welterweight and was Shields’s main sparring partner in London.
