COLORADO SPRINGS, COLO.) – With only one qualifying tournament remaining en route to the U.S. Olympic Team Trials for Men’s Boxing, over 380 boxers are scheduled to converge in Cincinnati, Ohio, July 4-9, for the Last Chance Qualifier Tournament. The boxers will vie for 10 spots with only one slot open in each of the men’s weight classes at the Olympic Trials, July 31-August 6 in Mobile, Ala.

A staggering 388 athletes pre-registered for the Last Chance Qualifier tournament in the 10 men’s weight classes with four divisions boasting over 50 athletes on their pre-event roster. The light welterweight division is the largest with 61 registered athletes slated to compete for the one spot in the Olympic Trials. The long list of 141-pound athletes includes 2009 Lightweight National Champion Duran Caferro (Helena, Mont.) competing in a new weight division.

The welterweight division is the second deepest weight class in the tournament with 58 registered boxers on the 152-pound roster. 2010 National Golden Gloves champion David Grayton (Washington DC) and 2010 USA Boxing National Championship bronze medalist Alex Martin (Chicago, Ill.) both hope to navigate the long week of boxing to earn the final welterweight berth in Mobile.

The talent-laden middleweight division has 51 registered boxers on its roster, including two of the top hopefuls who planned to qualify their berths at the recent USA Boxing National Championship but suffered early losses to same foe. 2010 National Champion Luis Arias (Milwaukee, Wis.) and 2010 USA Boxing National Championships bronze medalist Daquan Arnett (Orlando, Fla.) will both look to bounce back from preliminary round defeats to eventual silver medalist Edgar Alvarado, Jr. (San Bernadino, Calif.) in Cincinnati.

The lightweight division is the fourth largest weight class, but may enjoy the most talent of all 10 weight divisions. 2008 Olympian Raynell Williams (Cleveland, Ohio) hopes that he will enjoy home state luck as he chases a berth on his second straight Olympic Team. 2010 USA Boxing National Championships silver medalist Eric Flores (Inglewood, Calif.) and 2009 Featherweight National Champion Kevin Rivers (Landover, Md.) will also vie for the lone lightweight spot in Mobile when they take the ring in Cincinnati.

The 10 Last Chance Qualifier champions will complete the final roster for the U.S. Olympic Team Trials as the nation’s top boxers compete for a spot on the 2012 Olympic Team. The other seven spots were determined by the 2010 National PAL Championships, 2011 Armed Forces Championships and last week’s USA Boxing National Championships.

The Last Chance Qualifier was originally scheduled to end on Friday, July 8, but due to the large number of entrants, the weight classes with more than 32 registered athletes will run through Saturday, July 9. The light flyweight and flyweight divisions as well as any other weight classes which drop below 32 following Sunday’s event registration will conclude on Friday, July 8 as originally scheduled. The final event schedule will be released following Sunday’s event draw.

General admission tickets for the Last Chance Qualifier tournament will be $10 for adults and $5 for children in the preliminary rounds, $15 for adults and $10 for children for the semifinals and $20 for adults and $10 for children for the championship bouts. A week-long general admission pass is available for $75. Ringside tickets through the semifinals will run $20 for adults and $10 for kids and move to $40 for the finals and $20 for children. A week-long ringside pass will also be available for $135. To purchase tickets, go to .

Wow that's a lot of fighters! Our boy Edgar Alvarado placed second in Ohio this past weekend and won't have to go through this tournament. He's already in the qualifiers and hopefully will make it to the Olympic team!
