Lake Area Boxing fighter Mike Lucero pulled out of the USA Minnesota state boxing championships Dec. 8 in Sauk Rapids, due to illness.

Lucero did end up boxing in Grand Forks last Saturday and defeated Red River Golden Gloves fighter Joey Suda in a 165-pound match up.

LAB's Chase Metelak and Matt Mason lost close decisions in their Golden Gloves debut in Wadena.

Metelak lost to Willmar's Alex Duran in a 122-pound match up and Matt Mason lost to Brainerd's Braydon Campbell in a 152-pound match up.

"Both guys fought well in their boxing match, they gave it what they had, now they know it's going take a lot more work in the gym to earn victories in the boxing ring," said LAB head trainer Chris Holt. "They now had a taste of it, and they want to win."

LAB will be competing in the Golden Gloves competition Saturday, Jan. 12 in Wadena.
