|WM boxers wins golden gloves at Saturday tournament|
Two local youth boxers took home medals at The Louisiana/Mississippi Golden Gloves event Saturday at the West Monroe Sports Complex.
The West Monroe Boxing Club saw wins from Josh Ross and Samuel Ellis. The club's lone loss came from a split decision against David Green to Christopher Singleton of the BRE Gym.
Ross won by unanimous decision over Aaron Vickers of east Texas. Ross used big uppercuts and a steady jab during the last two rounds to secure the win.
"I wanted Josh (Ross) to go to the body," head trainer Sparky Mcduffie said. "He did a real good job of settling down and I was real happy with his performance."
In his first fight at the amateur level, Samuel Ellsworth picked up the win by unanimous decision. Ellsworth had it in the bag from the first round with a steady right jab and stellar defensive skills.
"Samuel did a good job overall," Mcduffie said. "He did a good job on the offensive end. Many people talk about his defense but he had some good offense on Saturday night."
In the final fight for the West Monroe Boxing Club, local favorite David Green lost to Baton Rouge boxer Christopher Singleton.
Green had stepped up to the 132 lbs. class and was outmatched in the later rounds. Singleton picked up steam and found enough punches to the head to score a close victory on the three judge's scorecards.
"He is going to be working harder on his conditioning," Mcduffie said. "He did some good things and just came up short. The guy he faced was a regional champion and has been fighting in that weight class."
Mcduffie will be taking a group of his boxers to Shreveport for another amateur event at the state level.
Mcduffie is also currently training fighters for the Battle of the Badges event at the Monroe Civic Center, set for Saturday, Aug. 15.
