Western New England Golden Gloves Semi-Finals

[Springfield, Massachusetts-Ringside] The Massmutual Center held the open and novice semi-finals of the Western New England Golden Gloves. A total of 19 bouts were held. In my eyes, the best, most entertaining bout of the night, the 201+ pounds novice, Darius Smith of Martinez Boxing vs. Nicholas Venuti of UConn. If you left before this fight you missed out.
