Jajaira Gonzalez Sets a Victorious Tone for Team USA With a Dominating Win in Her 2015 Junior and Youth World Championships Opener
by Julie Goldsticker
May 16, 2015

(MAY 16) (NEW TAIPEI CITY, TAIWAN) – Eighteen-year-old Jajaira Gonzalez (Glendora, Calif.) announced her presence on the international scene at the inaugural Junior and Youth World Championships in 2013 and her first bout at the 2015 event showed that she’s still the one to watch in her lightweight division. Known for her overwhelming punch output and aggressive nature, Gonzalez once again used her patented style to take a dominating win in the tournament opener for both she and Team USA at the Xinzhuang Stadium in New Taipei City.

Gonzalez wasted no time getting started in her four round bout with China’s Meigi Gao in lightweight preliminary round action. Swarming her with shots, Gonzalez gave Gao a standing eight count in the first round to set the tone for the rest of the match. She continued her onslaught over the next two round, giving Gao a standing eight count in the third. She showcased her boxing and defensive skills in the fourth while landing powerful shots on her way to a wide, unanimous decision. The win advances Gonzalez on to Monday’s preliminary competition where she will face Romania’s Dana Borzei in evening action.

Two United States boxers will compete on the second day of action on Sunday with middleweight Amanda Bermudez (Gatesville, Texas) competing in the junior division and light flyweight Hillary Perez (Arlington, Texas) boxing in the youth age group. Bermudez will face off with Ukraine’s Karolina Makhno in the early session with Perez taking on Mongolia’s Osormaa Sarantsetseg in the first bout of evening competition.

Four more American athletes will take the ring in Monday’s competition. Junior division athletes Heaven Garcia (El Monte, Calif.) and Pauline Viesca (Commerce, Calif.) will both represent their home state of California in tournament openers on Monday afternoon. Garcia will challenge Ireland’s Shauna Blakey in light flyweight competition while Viesca faces Kazakhstan’s Akniyet Abdigozha in the light bantamweight division.

2013 Junior World Champion Caitlin Orosco (Anaheim, Calif.) is back for the second edition of the Junior and Youth World Championships but will compete in the youth division in 2015. Orosco opens her run at a second world title in a bout with India’s Haobijan Mahe Devi in flyweight preliminary competition on Monday night. Featherweight Melanie Gonzalez (Houston, Texas) will make her world championships debut in a match-up with the winner of Sunday’s first round bout between Italy and Chinese Taipei.

Tuesday’s action will feature tournament openers for five American boxers. In the day’s early action, bantamweight Yarisel Ramirez (Las Vegas, Nev.) will kick off her tournament in a match with the victor of Sunday’s battle between Russia and Italy. Featherweight Zhane Crockett (Toledo, Ohio) received a first round bye as well and she will take the ring for second round competition against the winner of a bout between Russia and Italy.

Three youth division athletes will also box in Tuesday’s competition. Middleweight Iesha Kenney (Alexandria, Va.) won bronze in the inaugural event in 2013 and she plans to return to the medal podium in the youth division in 2015. She will begin her second world championship event in a preliminary round contest with Canada’s Taylor Ross on Tuesday evening. Light welterweight Ariel Arismendez (Tolleson, Ariz.) will take on Thailand’s Rewadee Phonok on Tuesday as well while welterweight Annalicia Sustaita (Garland, Texas) faces Ukraine’s Yulia Stoyko.

In Wednesday’s afternoon competition, lightweight Guadalupe Gutierrez (Sacramento, Calif.) will battle the winner of a preliminary contest between Mongolia and India. Light middleweight Destiny Navarro (El Centro, Calif.) will also compete in Wednesday’s early action, facing off with Russia’s Anastasiia Sigaeva.

Welterweight Kylie Hall (Fresno, Calif.) will be the final U.S. boxer to take the ring at the Xinzhuang Stadium in New Taipei City. She will take on the winner of India and Ireland in her first bout on Friday.

Christy Halbert (Nashville, Tenn.), Kay Koroma (Burke, Va.), Don Fain (Reno, Nev.), Caroline Barry (Boulder, Colo.), and Arthur James (Anaheim, Calif.) are leading the United States team in Taipei.
