The last time I spoke to Coach Donny Jackson of the Shreveport Youth Boxing Club, who will be hosting the amateur boxing event, he informed this blog writer that he is expecting boxing clubs from not only from the State of Louisiana to participate at the Second Annual Shreveport Youth Boxing Invitational, but also teams from East Texas and Mississippi!
Many of the featured athletes who will be participating recently competed at their respective silver and golden gloves elimination tournaments, and want to sharpen their skills further to win in their age and weight division.
Besides the Shreveport Youth Boxing Club, the Shreveport-Bossier City area has three other boxing clubs representing and preparing their athletes for the upcoming 2017 Louisiana State Golden Gloves in Lafayette, Louisiana:
- The Stephens Boxing Academy
- The Dement Brothers Old School Boxing Club
- The Paxton’s Boxing Gym
