TACOMA GOLDEN GLOVES MARKS 70 YEARS OF THE SWEET SCIENCE

The Tacoma Athletic Commission ends a year-long celebration of its 75th anniversary this month with its 70th annual Golden Gloves boxing finals at the UPS Fieldhouse on Saturday, Jan. 27. Produced by the TAC, the “Gloves” will feature nearly 50 top amateur boxers for the 7 p.m. event.

Contestants will include a defending championship team from the Tacoma Boxing Club, a strong contender from the University of Washington boxing team, and several participants from Oregon and Alaska. Defending champions who will return are:

  • 114lbs – Jeremy Morales, 25-years old, R&C Boxing (Pasco)
  • 132lbs – Greg Cruz, 25-years old, Arcaro Boxing (Seattle)
  • 141lbs – Hector Rendon, 22-years old, Tacoma Boxing, received 2017 Golden Boy belt.
  • 201+lbs –  Super Heavyweight – Ramel Casablanca, 27-years old, Tacoma Boxing Club

There will be keen interest in Casablanca, the 2017 Eastern Elite (Chattanooga) National Champion and 2017 runner-up at Elite National Championships (Salt Lake City). Casablanca is currently training in Colorado Springs at USA Boxing’s invitation-only training camp. He is training not only with the top amateur boxers in the United States, but joins 49 boxers from Great Britain, New Zealand and Poland. He has been there since Jan. 10 and will return home in time for the Tacoma Golden Gloves. Ramel is currently ranked #2 in the nation in his weight class.

Returning to the Fieldhouse again triggers memories of past Tacoma Golden Gloves which began in the Tacoma Armory in the 40s, moved to the Fieldhouse in the 50s, and then to the Tacoma Dome’s Exhibition Hall after it opened in the 1980s.

Preliminary bouts will be held at the Edison Annex, 2109 S. 60th St. in Tacoma on Friday Jan. 26, at 7 p.m. with tickets available at the door for $10. Tickets for the Saturday, Jan. 27 finals at the UPS Fieldhouse are available online at tickets.pugetsound.edu, at the UPS ticket office (253) 879-3100, or at the door. General admission tickets are $16 for the finals; $28 on the floor.

Tony Anderson, three time TAC president and Golden Gloves committee member, will be honored at the championships. Anderson has been a civic and youth sport advocate for more than 30 years. His support of amateur boxing as a TAC member has been appreciated.

“SUPERMAN” STOLEN SEEKS TITLE BELT AT CAGESPORT 49

Nathan Stolen has been nothing short of dominating in his two previous appearances at CageSport. A third such performance will result in him earning the title of champion.

Stolen will face Daniel Swain for the CageSport Featherweight championship in the main event of CageSport 49 at the Emerald Queen Casino in Tacoma on Saturday, Feb. 10.

The 5-round title fight will be one of nine bouts on the card. Tickets are available through the EQC box office and all Ticketmaster outlets. Preliminary bouts start at 7 p.m. Doors open at 6 p.m.

Stolen, a native of Aberdeen, Wash., brings a record of 7-2 with five of his victories ending by knockout into the title contest.

“Training has been going great. I’m back home training now after spending a few weeks down in Albuquerque at Jackson Wink MMA Academy, thanks to my Happenstance Coffee sponsorship,” Stolen said. “A fracture under the eye my last week postponed fighting right away after coming back, but it didn’t stop me from continuing to train every day.”

Stolen made his CageSport debut on July 23, 2016 and proceeded to defeat Jeremie Montgomery by first-round KO. Four months later he returned to the promotion and defeated A.J. Bryant in similar fashion. Stolen opened his professional career a perfect 6-0 before falling to undefeated Tyler Diamond (9-0) by decision on May 18, 2017.

“Since my last fight at the EQC I’ve improved greatly overall as a fighter. I’m more experienced now as a professional, having had more fights, wins and losses,” Stolen said. “I’ve got to train with other professionals from all over the world. I’ve seen many different styles that has better prepared me for my future fights.”

One unofficial bout Stolen came up victorious in occurred on March 13, 2017, outside of Morningstar Karate in Aberdeen. While Stolen was training, a 28-year-old man attempted to throw a fire extinguisher through the front window. Stolen, living up to his ring moniker of “Superman,” raced outside to investigate after hearing a loud crash. Once outside, Stolen confronted the suspect.

“I’m not sure what his intentions were, but he threw (the fire extinguisher) against the window,” Stolen said.

Once the suspect saw Stolen, he readied his fists, swore at him and advanced before throwing a punch at Stolen.

“I slipped his punch and hit him and knocked him down. He got back up and I hit him with a three-punch combo and knocked him back down,” Stolen said. “Then I jumped on him and struck him with several north-south elbows to the face before a bigger gym-mate jumped on him.”

Police arrived to find Stolen and his classmates holding the suspect down. The suspect was later booked for disorderly conduct.

“I didn’t want to hurt the guy too bad. I just wanted to make sure he was subdued and that he didn’t reach for any more weapons, if he had any,” Stolen said. “I wasn’t shocked by the whole situation though. He couldn’t have picked a worse place to cause trouble.”

Stolen will be facing a very experienced fighter in Swain, who will be stepping inside the cage for the 25th time as a professional when he challenges for the featherweight title. Swain’s impressive resume includes wins over UFC veteran Sam Sicilia and former CageSport champion Drew Brokenshire, and a pair of victories in the Japan-based promotion Pancrase.

“I know (Swain) is tough, solid wrestler,” Stolen said. “I like a challenge. The better the fight, the more fun I have and the harder I fight back. So I’m very excited for February 10.”
