Local Boxers prepare for Golden Gloves Tournament
About 200 local boxers will try their hand at the regional Golden Gloves Boxing Tournament at the El Paso Coliseum this weekend. Bouts begin at 7:00pm Friday, 3:00pm Saturday and Sunday at the Coliseum. Hear from first time Golden Gloves participant Bianca Castillo from Pound 4 Pound boxing in East El Paso. Organizers say they are one of the largest boxing clubs represented at the Golden Gloves.
Bianca Castillo: I am definitely excited, a little nervous but really excited. You know, we have all been working hard here at Pound 4 Pound, and I am confident in myself and my teammates, all we have to do is to step in the ring, give it 100% and give it all we got, and take it from there. I am expecting to learn from it, win or lose, it doesn't matter.
