by Julie Goldsticker
June 13, 2015

(JUNE 13)  (CHARLESTON, W. VA.) – An event that started with hundreds of boxers from across the country concluded with 21 final round bouts on Saturday in Charleston, W. Va. Thirty-two young boxers won bouts in Friday's action at the 2015 Junior Olympic and Prep National Championships before the final 21 champions were crowned on the last day of tournament competition at the Charleston Civic Center.  

The best 15 and 16-year-old boxers in the United States provided an early preview of the talent that will vie for the 2020 Olympics in Saturday's junior division gold medal matches. Three junior world champions and one world championships silver medalist competed in 2015 Junior Olympic National Championships fresh off their thrilling victories in Taiwan. Light flyweight Heaven Garcia (El Monte, Calif.) was the only world champion to win in Charleston, taking a unanimous decision over Amy Salinas (Mesquite, N.M.) in the finals to win a Junior Olympic national championship and the outstanding boxer award for the smaller women's weight divisions. 

In women's featherweight competition, Diana Estrada (Hillsboro, Ore.) avenged his loss to 2015 junior world champion Zhane Crockett (Toledo, Ohio), winning a split decision for her first Junior Olympic National Championship. 

Defending junior Olympic champion Andrea Medina (Chula Vista, Calif.) defeated a second junior world champion in her lightweight championships bout. Medina took a unanimous decision victory over lightweight world titlist Lupe Gutierrez (Sacramento, Calif.) in their final round match-up. 

World Championships silver medalist Kylie Hall (Fresno, Calif.) enjoyed more luck in her welterweight title bout with Sharahya Moreu (Albuquerque, N.M.). Hall won a unanimous decision in their match-up to take Junior Olympic gold and the outstanding boxer award for the women's middle weight divisions.  

The men's division featured several outstanding bouts in the day's championship round action. In the men's pinweight bout, Japthethlee Llamido (Norwalk, Calif.) defeated Junior Open champion Jesse Rodriguez (San Antonio, Texas) for the first junior men's gold medal.  

Junior Open and defending Junior Olympic champion Marc Castro (Fresno, Calif.) added a third junior division national championship to his resume, winning a unanimous decision victory over Christopher Zavala (Bellflower, Calif.).  

In the light bantamweight division, 2015 Junior Open titlist Otha Jones III won a unanimous decision win over Anthony Reyes (Coachella, Calif.) to claim his first Junior Olympic National Championship as well as the outstanding boxer award for the lower men's age divisions.  

With the loud support of the Pennsylvania delegation behind him, Joseph Adorno (Philadelphia, Pa.) took gold in the featherweight title bout. In the lightweight division bout, David Kaminsky (Tarzana, Calif.) upset 2015 Junior Open champion Harley Maderos (New York, N.Y.). Kaminsky won a split decision victory over Maderos for the championship and the outstanding boxer award in the men's middle weight divisions. 

The men's light welterweight division featured a match-up between the defending champion at 138 pounds, Andres Borrego (Arvada, Colo.) and Junior Open light welterweight titlist Leon Lawson III (Flint, Mich.). It was Lawson taking the split decision win for his second straight Junior Olympic championship.

A new champion was crowned in men's light heavyweight action with Najee Lopez (Lithonia, Ga.) taking the title with his unanimous decision victory over Daniel Gates (Dyersburg, Tenn.).  

The super heavyweights closed the day and the tournament in one of the event's most exciting bouts. Defending champion Richard Torrez (Tulare, Calif.) faced off with Keshaun Davis (Pearl, Miss.) in final round competition. Heavy shots were flying throughout to the delight of the crowd, which was ooohing and ahhing with every hard punch. Torrez grabbed his second straight Junior Olympic National Championship and the outstanding boxer award for the heavier weight divisions with his unanimous decision win.  

The 2015 event was the first-ever USA Boxing Prep National Championships and over 600 athletes registered to compete in the joint prep and Junior Olympic event. Athletes as young as eight-years-old showcased their talent and passion over the five-day tournament at the Charleston Civic Center with over 130 age and weight divisions being contested in the first-time event.
