Over 700 Boxers Register for the 2012 USA Boxing National Championships
By Julie Goldsticker
February 2, 2012


(COLORADO SPRINGS, COLO.) Ė A record breaking number of athletes will compete in the 2012 USA Boxing National Championships, February 26-March 3 at the Fort Carson Special Events Center in Colorado Springs, Colo. Registration for the event concluded on Monday and a whopping 718 athletes have signed up to compete in the tournament.

The event plays a large role in the Olympic qualifying process for the seven unqualified menís weight divisions with the 2012 USA Boxing National Champions advancing on to the final, international Olympic qualifier in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in May. The seven weight classes that remain open for Olympic qualification: are light flyweight (108 lbs.), lightweight (132 lbs.), light welterweight (141 lbs.), middleweight (165 lbs.), light heavyweight (178 lbs.), heavyweight (201 lbs), and super heavyweight (201+ lbs.).

Due to the large number of entrants, competition will begin on Sunday, February 26 in the lightweight (132 lbs.), light welterweight (141 lbs.), middleweight (165 lbs.), light heavyweight (178 lbs.), heavyweight (201 lbs.) and super heavyweight (201+ lbs.) divisions.

The light welterweight class leads all weight divisions in size with 115 boxers registered at the 141-pound mark. Lightweight follows closely behind with 110 boxers and the middleweight class boasts 96 entries.

Although the 2012 USA Boxing National Championships are not a component of the Olympic qualifying process for the female boxers, the Womenís World Championships team in the seven non-Olympic weight divisions will be determined in Colorado Springs. The champions in the light flyweight, bantamweight, featherweight, light welterweight, middleweight, light heavyweight and heavyweight classes will all earn berths on the U.S. squad for the key womenís international tournament.

The first tournament draw will take place on Sunday, with the path to gold being set for the six larger weight classes opening action on Sunday. The draw for the remaining four menís weight divisions and the womenís weight classes will be held on Sunday, February 26.

USA Boxing National Championships preliminary round action will run from Sunday through Wednesday with two sessions daily at 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. Thursday will feature quarterfinal action in two sessions and the semifinal bouts will be contested on Friday evening with championship bouts taking place on Saturday, March 3.

Admission for the preliminaries, semifinal rounds and womenís non-Olympic and menís qualified weight division finals will be free of charge. Championship night general admission tickets are only $12.50 in advance (before February 28) or for any spectators with a valid USOC or NGB ID card or military/DoD identification. General admission tickets will be $20 after February 28 and can be purchased via Tempo Tickets at here.

As the 2012 USA Boxing National Championships will take place on Fort Carson, which is an active U.S. Army Base, all media interested in covering the event must be credentialed through Fort Carson Public Affairs. Please contact Julie Goldsticker at julie@goldstickerpr.com  or (720) 542-9690 if you are interested in covering the event and want to be included on Fort Carsonís outreach list.  (men boxers are listed on USA Boxing)
