July 2, 2016

(JULY 2) DALLAS, TEXAS - The Junior Olympic and Prep National Championships and Youth Open started the week with nearly 850 competitors and event concluded on Saturday afternoon with the final 41 final round bouts. The junior and youth divisions held center stage in the four rings today at the Kay Bailey Hutchinson Convention Center.

Three junior world champions scored final round victories in Saturday's closing session. Junior division light flyweight Heaven Garcia (El Monte, Calif.) claimed another national championship win with a championship bout victory over Amy Salinas (Las Cruces, N.M.). Garcia's junior world championships teammate Guadalupe Gutierrez (Sacramento, Calif.) avenged her loss from the youth national championships earlier this year in a final round contest with Andrea Medina. Gutierrez took the victory in the lightweight bout to win the 2016 Youth Open championship. Bantamweight Marc Castro (Fresno, Calif.) closed his Youth Open with a win over hometown boxer Angel Alejandro (Grand Prairie, Texas) to take his second national championship win of the year.

Several world championships medalists scored victories on Saturday as well. Light flyweight Jesse Rodriguez (San Antonio, Texas) ended a week of boxing in his home state with a victory over Asa Stevens (Waianae, Hawaii) in the opening bout of the day. Yarisel Ramirez (Las Vegas, Nev.) won gold in her youth bantamweight bout with Ashlee Garcia (Dallas, Texas) and light welterweight Gabriel Flores (Sacramento, Calif.) continued his run on Saturday, taking a victory over Arveontae Dukes (New York, N.Y.).

Otha Jones (Toledo, Ohio) scored a victory in one of the most highly anticipated bouts of the day against World Championships medalist Harley Mederos (Brooklyn, N.Y.). Jones successfully moved up to the lightweight division with a final round win.

Christian Montano (Houston, Texas) and Richard Torrez (Tulare, Calif.) both put a quick end to their youth division finals. The duo scored TKO victories in their light heavyweight and super heavyweight division finales respectively.

Over 180 weight classes were contested in Dallas with champions named in each of them. Ten boxers stood above the rest, receiving Outstanding Boxers of the Tournament awards. In the PeeWee division, 70-pounder Teagan Reed (Dyersburg, Tenn.) and 65-pounder Curmel Moton (Las Vegas, Nev.) claimed the award for the youngest age division in the tournament.

In the bantam age group, it was 85-pounder Malaysia Antoine (Lafayette, La.) and 90-pounder Daniel Haro (Merced, Calif.) receiving the Outstanding Boxer plaque. Jadalie Medeiros (Dothan, Ala.) and Jyran Sutton (St. Louis, Mo.) won the tournament's highest honor for their work in the 90-pound and 75-pound divisions respectively.

In the junior weight division, bantamweight Avaughnda Ammons (Huntsville, Ala.) and middleweight Lorenzo Simpson (Baltimore, Md.) took the Outstanding Boxer awards.
