The Casablanca resort is hosting this year’s Jr. Golden Gloves Boxing Tournaments July 20-22.

According to the official Golden Gloves web site, since the first Golden Gloves tournament in 1923, the Golden Gloves of America, Inc. and its member franchises have provided an opportunity and environment for young athletes to develop lifetime skills.

The Golden Gloves program has led the way in promoting amateur boxing in the United States and has produced most competitors for America’s boxing teams in the Pan-Am and Olympic Games.

The National Golden Gloves contest began in 1962 and continues to be the most highly regarded amateur boxing tournament in the United States.

Winners from regional Golden Gloves competitions compete in the national competition, called the Golden Gloves Tournament of Champions. The Tournament of Champions is held once a year, and a new tournament site is selected annually. The U.S. Golden Gloves program is currently organized on a territorial basis to give all sections of the country representation. All tournaments are planned, promoted and directed by the Golden Gloves Charities and within the limits of the amateur boxing code. Many amateur Golden Gloves participants went on to become professional boxers, including Joe Louis, Muhammad Ali, Joe Frazier, and Barney Ross.

The Jr. Golden Gloves are open to all non-professional pugilists age 8-16 who are United States citizens. Doors open at 5 p.m. nightly. For more information on the Mesquite Tournaments and ticket information, visit the Casablanca web site at www.casablancaresort.com

Please send all your summer activities to terin.bbm@gmail.com and put community calendar in the subject line so your information doesn’t get lost in cyberspace.
