Boxing in Wadena
Lakes Area Boxing traveled to Wadena this last Weekend and had two boxers competing.
LAB's Samantha Lucero (13-years-old) had her Golden Gloves boxing debut and was in a good match up with Wadena's Emily Bolt.
"Samantha was slow to start, but got aggressive during each round," said LAB head trainer Chris Holt.
Lucero ended up winning by way of decision.
LAB's Chace Metelak (15) was in a battle with Red River Golden Gloves Owen Renkev.
"Chase used his boxing skills by picking out good shots to the body to slow Renkev down and then threw combinations to score points," Holt said. "I see improvement with this kid with every match."
Metelak won by way of decision.
LAB will be heading to East Grand Forks Saturday at the American Legion. Boxing matches start at 1 p.m.
