(MAR 6) Thirteen of the United Statesí top youth boxers will square off against foes from north, central, and south America at the 2014 Youth Continental Championships, March 5-10 at the Julio Cesar Hidalgo Coliseum in Quito, Ecuador. All of the boxers representing Team USA in the major international event are current or former national champions and will look to add a continental title to their resumes. 

For the first time, the youth boxers in both the menís and womenís Olympic weight divisions will compete together in continental championship action. The twelve champions from the 2014 Junior and Youth Open competing in Ecuador are: male light flyweight Nico Hernandez (Wichita, Kansas), female flyweight Caitlin Orosco (Anaheim, Calif.), male bantamweight Carlos Balderas (Santa Maria, Calif.), male lightweight Isidro Ochoa (Fresno, Calif.), female lightweight Jajaira Gonzalez (Glendora, Calif.), male light welterweight Jonathan Navarro (Los Angeles, Calif.), male welterweight Javier Estrada (Palmdale, Calif.), male middleweight Charles Conwell (Cleveland, Ohio), female middleweight Martha Fabela (Oakland, Calif.), male light heavyweight Bobby Harris (Worcester, Mass.), male heavyweight Matthew Mollet (Port Orchard, Wash.), and male super heavyweight Darmani Rock (Philadelphia, Pa.). In addition, 2013 USA Boxing youth national champion Antonio Vargas (Kissimmee, Fla.) will represent the United States at the male flyweight division. 

The U.S. squad held a preparatory training camp at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colo., before departing for Ecuador on Tuesday. The team is currently getting acclimated to their surroundings, and the official event draw, opening ceremony and the first day of preliminary competition will take place tomorrow. Preliminary action will continue through Friday, March 7 and semifinal competition will take place on Saturday, March 8.  The event will conclude with championship round action on Sunday, March 9 in Quito.
