Sabrina Calloway, 12,
8-0-0, of Team Subway Boxing, reigning out of Cleveland, Ohio, became the
youngest female to ever win the Women’s National Golden Gloves Tournament,
that was held in Rosemont, Illinois from August 5-9, 2003.
Calloway faced Cierra Williams, 12,
of from Kronk's Gym in
Detroit, and won by a decision. Calloway said, “I was not fazed by Kronk,
I'm only disappointed that I didn't score a knockout.”
Calloway is trained under
the guidance of Antonio Gonzalez, who has been dedicated to Calloway’s
progression in the sport and is an advocate of women’s boxing.
|Gonzalez began training with
Calloway two years ago, after she had seen him teaching his son outdoors
and would constantly ask Gonzalez, if she could “Play Boxing.”
Calloway has won many state championship titles that includes, becoming
the 2002-2003 Ohio Silver Gloves State Champion; the 2003 Lake Erie
Association Junior Olympic Champion, and winning the 2003 Women's
National Golden Gloves Championship. In 2004, she won the 2004 Ohio
Silver Gloves state championship.
When Calloway is NOT
boxing, she enjoys swimming, roller-skating with friends, shopping, movies
and listening to music. She is a member of her school’s music choir, and a
four-time physical fitness winner. Besides excelling in boxing, she is an
honor roll student with perfect attendance!
Gonzalez told WBAN that he knew in his heart the very first day that he
started to train her that she would be the future of women’s boxing.
