2012 USA Boxing National Championships Preliminary Action Begins at Fort Carson

Action got underway at the 2012 USA Boxing National Championships on Sunday with preliminary action in six of the seven non-qualified weight divisions. Fort Carson’s Special Events Center is playing host to the event throughout the week and the tournament got off to a great start with a full day of boxing action.

The light welterweight, light heavyweight and super heavyweight classes enjoyed the stage in the day’s early session with 25 bouts of action in 11 a.m. action. Two of Fort Carson’s own enjoyed victories in their home ring on Monday afternoon. Light heavyweights Derae Crane (Colorado Springs, Colo.) and Jeffery Spencer (Colorado Springs, Colo.) both earned first round wins, defeating Joshua Balbuena (Symona, Ga.) and Brandon Larvadain respectively.

The evening session featured a full night of middleweight competition as well as contests in the lightweight and heavyweight divisions. Olympic Trials middleweight champion Jesse Hart (Philadelphia, Pa.) claimed his first win of the tournament with a 23-7 decision over John Magda (Rutherford, N.J.). 2011 USA Boxing National Championships bronze medalist D’Mitrius Ballard (Temple Hills, Md.) pulled out an 18-17 win over neighbor Marquis Moore (Fort Washington, Md.) in a hard fought contest. Hart and Ballard will face off in second round action on Tuesday. 2009 National Champion Terrell Gausha (Cleveland, Ohio) enjoyed a successful return to the USA Boxing National Championships, defeating Olympic Trials light heavyweight participant Caleb Plant (Ashland City, Tenn.), 18-16.

In heavyweight competition, 2010 USA Boxing Athlete of the Year opened his 2012 tournament with a convincing 18-4 win over Jas Phipps.

Monday’s action will feature second round competition in the two largest weight classes in the tournament – lightweight and light welterweight. The light welterweights will take the ring in the 11 a.m. session with the lightweights competing at 5 p.m. The middleweight, light heavyweight, heavyweight and super heavyweight divisions will return to the ring on Tuesday. The remaining men’s weight divisions and female brackets will be posted on Monday morning.

Results will be disseminated nightly upon the completion of competition and running results can be found at www.usaboxing.org.
