2013 USA Boxing National Championships: Day 2 Results

(SPOKANE, WASH.) – The 2013 USA Boxing National Championships rolled into the second day of competition on Tuesday as participants and fans alike began to acclimate to all the rule changes being made in the sport. Once again, two rings of action filled the HUB Sports Center in Spokane, Wash., with all of the competitors boxing to advance in their individual divisions and weight classes.

Twenty-seven preliminary round contests highlighted afternoon action with boxers competing in the youth males’ lightweight and senior men’s welterweight division alongside elite men’s bouts in the lightweight, middleweight and light heavyweight classes. The jam-packed youth males’ division took the ring for the second straight day with 12 bouts of preliminary round action and once again, the competition was hotly contested. Reigning Junior Olympic national champion Christian Bermudez (Brooklyn, N.Y.) fell to Gary Antwuan Russell (Capitol Heights, Md.) in their preliminary round match-up. The following bout ended quickly with Genaro Gamez (San Diego, Calif.) taking a knockout victory at the 2:40 mark of the first round of their showdown. Gamez and Russell will face off for a spot in the medal round on Wednesday.

In senior men’s welterweight action, Reyes Marquez (Colorado Springs, Colo.) and DeLorien Caraway (St. Paul, Minn.) each enjoyed short outings in their preliminary match-ups. Marquez won a TKO victory in the second round of his contest with Nicholas Carrico (San Diego, Calif.), taking the win with one minute remaining in the second round. Caraway needed less than two minutes to put an end to his bout with Robel Biru (Seattle, Wash.). Caraway’s first round knockout advanced him on to a semifinal contest with Marquez.

The men’s elite lightweight division controlled the first seven bouts of the afternoon in the second ring with all of the competitors vying for spots in the quarterfinal round. Charles Vasquez Vera (New Port Richey, Fla.) pulled an early upset, defeating the number two seed in the lightweight division, Luis Feliciano (Milwaukee, Fla.). Vasquez Vera won a unanimous decision over Vera to advance to Thursday’s competition.

Middleweight Daniel Thomas (Concord, Calif.) earned a knockout victory over Berlin Kerney (El Cajon, Calif.) in their elite men’s preliminary contest, winning the bout at the 1:13 mark of the first round to advance on to the next round.

The first female bouts of the tournament opened competition in the evening session with elite female featherweights taking the ring for the first two contests. Haley Pasion (Aiea, Hawaii) claimed the first win, taking a split decision victory over U.S. Olympic Team Trials for Women’s Boxing competitor Taversha Norwood (Oxnard, Calif.).

Men’s elite welterweight Rashidi Ellis (Lynn, Mass.) competed in his first bout at the USA Boxing National Championships Tuesday night following a silver medal at the Independence Cup in the Dominican Republic earlier this year. He faced off with the towering Ivan Pandzic (Ontario, Calif.) in the seventh welterweight bout of the night. Ellis used his aggression to find his range and landed powerful shots against his taller opponent. His efforts paid off as Ellis won a third round TKO over Pandzic to move on to Thursday’s quarterfinals.

The senior men’s division controlled the opposite ring in evening action with matches in the bantamweight, light welterweight, heavyweight and super heavyweight classes being contested in the second session. Thirteen senior men’s boxers advanced on in the tournament including U.S. Army athletes Marquis Moore (Fort Carson, Colo.) and Marvin Carey (Colorado Springs, Colo.).

The elite men’s division will enjoy a rest day on Wednesday with elite women in the light flyweight, bantamweight, lightweight, and welterweight classes taking the ring in quarterfinal action tomorrow. The youth males will compete in quarterfinal action on Thursday as well. Wednesday’s sessions will begin at 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. at the HUB Sports Center.
