New York Amateur Boxing Championships

​Schenectady Armory, Schenectady, NY

Our girl Jillian was in Schenectady, NY today for the New York Amateur Boxing Championships. When all was said and done she stepped out of the ring The CHAMP! This young lady trains hard, never complains, takes her lumps and keeps moving forward. She is an athlete and good at everything she does. So when she walked into Strike Zone three years ago we knew we had someone special. The sky is the limit for this young lady. Keep up the hard work kid, it's working!

Also, teammate Yourry, who hasn't been training long, stepped in the ring and had a war but lost a close decision. For the amount of time he's been training, this kid showed a ton of heart and skills. You will definitely be seeing a lot more of him in the future. 

We are all proud of the two of you!!! Thanks and congrats to Coach Jody for putting in the hours for our fighters.
