This past weekend the Colorado State Silver Gloves Boxing Tournament was held in Wheatridge, Colorado in which the Ybarras Boxing Club of Security-Widefield, had three participants.
Luis Joe Ybarra Jr entered the 12-13yr old 119lbs open class division and defeated Nemo Zuma from Denver in the semifinals and then went on to the finals to defeat Enrique Garcia from Greeley, CO. This was Luis Joe’s 6th straight title in this State Silver Gloves tournament since he was 8 years old. Now he moves on to Pasadena California for the regional Silver Glove Tournament on the 7th of January 2015. Luis Joe will represent the State of Colorado in the same age and weight division.
Xavier Montoya placed 2nd in the 12-13yr old 70lbs open division as did Marshall Schreiber also placed 2nd in the 8-9yr old 70lbs weight division. Congratulations to all three!
