Judges were very busy as all 10 exciting bouts, including a Junior Olympic match and two non-tournament bouts, went the complete distance.  Individual standouts included a pair of open division boxers, welterweight Michael Fontanez, of Nashua (N.H.), and Methuen (MA) middleweight Yarmarco Guzman.  A representative of Nashua, PAL, Fontanez is a slick, hard hitting southpaw who shutout, 5-0, a very tough Kenny Larson, of Salem (MA).  Guzman, boxing out of Canal Street Gym, looked like a veteran boxer on his way to a 5-0 shutout win over Lowell's Julien Baptiste.

 

The open and novice semifinals will be held next Thursday night (Feb. 2) at Lowell Memorial Auditorium with men's and women's matches.  See the remaining 2017 schedule of events below as well as last night's complete results.
