NEW ENGLAND TOURNAMENT OF CHAMPIONS - Novice finals results from Lowell


LOWELL, Mass. (February 24, 2017) - Twelve novice division champions were crowned last night in the men and women's finals of the New England Tournament of Champions, part of the 71st annual Lowell Sun Charities Golden Gloves Championship, at historic Lowell Memorial Auditorium.

Central New England edged Western New England, 6-4, to win the team title and receive the George McGuane Award. Northern New England had the other two individual winners.

The much-anticipated showdown in the light welterweight bout lived up to its billing as Alejandro Paulino, of New London (CT), defeated Tyngsboro's (MA) Nathan Balakin, 4-1. Paulino was presented the Louie Ayala Memorial Award as the Outstanding Boxer. Jose Ayala, Louie's brother, made the presentation.

"We had another big, enthusiastic crowd that enjoyed watching some great matches," said Bobby Russo, New England Golden Gloves Executive Director. "The novice division finals had so many good matchups. Paulino versus Balakin was a very good fight. Now, we move on to next week's open division semifinals and finals of the New England Tournament of Champions."
