USA Boxing departed yesterday for European Tour

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (April 11, 2023) -- USA Boxing high performance members departed from the United States Olympic and Paralympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colorado, yesterday for Helsinki, Finland, the first stop of their month-long European tour that will consist of two competitions and a multi nation training camp. Full rosters can be seen below.

“This European Tour will be very valuable for the team’s development in preparation for our first Olympic Qualifier, the Pan American Games, later this year” stated Matt Johnson, USA Boxing High Performance Director. “This tour will also provide a handful of our alternates with the opportunity to gain valuable international experience by taking part in the multi nation training camp in Germany.”

Members of the elite high performance team will begin competition later this week in Helsinki at the 41st annual Gee Bee Tournament, before being joined by six additional boxers in Kienbaum at the Olympic and Paralympic Training Center for Germany, where additional international countries, including Finland, Ireland, and Poland, will train together for two weeks.

The high performance team will then close out their month long travels at the 53rd Grand Prix in Usti And Labem, Czech Republic, which will begin on Thursday, May 4.

USA Boxing Head Coach Billy Walsh (Colorado Springs, Colo.) will lead the team throughout the event, along with National Resident Coach Timothy Nolan (Rochester, N.Y.), National Developmental Coach Chad Wigle (Colorado Springs, Colo.), and Christine Lopez (Rowlett, Texas). Richard Stephenson (Middletown, N.Y.), will join the team in Germany for the multi nation training camp.
