U.S. Olympic Team Trials - Day 2, Part 2 Results

(MOBILE, ALA.) – Two exciting bouts in the lightweight division highlighted a strong night of boxing on Monday at the U.S. Olympic Team Trials for Men’s Boxing in Mobile, Ala. Two-time National Champion Jose Ramirez (Avenal, Calif.) was pushed to the limit in his bout while 2008 Olympian Raynell Williams (Cleveland, Ohio) came back from a deficit in his bout with 2011 USA Boxing National Championships silver medalist Toka Kahn Clary (Providence, R.I.)

Ramirez took on 2011 USA Boxing National Championships bronze medalist Kenneth Sims, Jr. (Chicago, Ill.) in his second bout of the tournament. The bout was close from the opening bell to the final second, but only one boxer could emerge victorious. Ramirez pulled out a 23-22 decision over Sims to advance to a final round match-up with Williams. The 2008 Olympian advanced to his second straight winners bracket final with a 30-25 win over Kahn Clary.

Shawn Simpson (Chicago, Ill.) and Rau’shee Warren (Cincinnati, Ohio) will face in the flyweight winners bracket final following victories by both boxers. Simpson won a 16-12 decision over Oscar Cantu (Kingsville, Texas) while Warren took a 29-18 victory over Stephon Young (St. Louis, Mo.).

Amir Imam (Albany, N.Y.) officially announced his intentions in his new welterweight division with a commanding 40-10 victory over Arturo Trujillo (Easton, Pa.) in the winners bracket semifinal. Three-time national champion Errol Spence (Desoto, Texas) will face Imam on Wednesday following his 13-5 victory over Bryant Perrella (Lehigh Acres, Fla.).

In light heavyweight action, Marcus Browne (Staten Island, N.Y.) claimed an 11-8 decision over 2010 National Champion Jeffery Spencer (Fort Carson, Colo.) to join 2011 USA Boxing National Championships silver medalist Jerry Odom (Bowie, Md.) in the light heavyweight winners bracket championship bout.

Lenroy Thompson (Lenexa, Kansas) took down the towering Dominic Breazale (Alhambra, Calif.) in their super heavyweight match-up. Thompson took a 16-7 decision over Breazale and will look for his third straight victory in a match-up with Andrew Shepherd (Fort Carson, Colo.). 

All of the winners brackets boxers will be off on Tuesday with the challengers bracket competing in 20 bouts on Tuesday evening.

Athlete Quotes

Jose Ramirez

“In comparison to last night’s fight I felt the same, I take every fight seriously. I knew this fight with Kenneth Sims Jr. was going to be a good fight, but I didn’t know how close.”

“I’m going to try and take advantage of the extra day off I get from winning and get my rest.

Errol Spence

“This was my third time facing Bryant Perella, so I already knew what I had to do to win. It was really important to win this one and keep the pressure off, now they have to beat me twice to eliminate me.”

“Tonight I used my ring generalship skills; I was a moving target and he couldn’t catch my rhythm.”

Jerry Odom

 “The anticipation for this bout was extra motivation because we had fought before in the National PAL Championship and it was close - 7-6.”

 “I was there mentally and that allowed me to beat Shabazz.”

 “I’m so close to an Olympic spot, I’m expecting the best from my next opponents.”

 “A victory like this gives me a lot of confidence.  I’ve only been boxing four years ago, a lot of these guys have been working for this their whole life.”

Lenroy Thompson

“My performance could always get better, I’m going to go to the gym and work on a few things before my next fight.”

“It was a more physical fight then it had to be, but I had the confidence going in because I’ve been working with the Headbangers boxing club in Washington, D.C. and they’ve helped me a lot.”

 “Having an extra day of rest will be nice, I’ve never had a day off before in a tournament.”

 “In order to pull off these two wins to qualify I have to work hard, not make any mistakes, and be smart.”

I am glad Lenroy didn't go pro yet. He gets more time than Tor Hamer did to perfect his game before stepping into it with the big boys. I hope he secures a place on the team, because I think…
