Thursday, April 29: Tim Meek is not your average 22-year old. Meek has his sights on a second Golden Gloves Championship. This coming Monday, Meek will participate in the Golden Gloves National Tournament in Little Rock, Arkansas. Meek won the Junior Golden Gloves title in 2004, and will now fight in the open middleweight division. Meek has been training in Las Cruces with veteran fighter and now trainer Louie Burke. Tim Meek said, "I have been to nationals before, I have competed against some of the top in the nation. I have competed against most of the top four on the U.S. Olympic team already, they are pretty tough but I have trained hard. I have had good training with Austin Trout and Siju Shibazz. I think we'll be ready, I can expect to see lots of punches in bunches, but I'll give it right back." The Golden Gloves National Tournament begins Monday, May 3.
