Rockford’s champion boxer has added another title. Angel Martinez won the 17-18 U.S. National Championship last week in Kansas City. The event is sanctioned by USA Boxing.
Martinez had four bouts at 108 pounds. He won all four. One of them was over the defending Junior Olympic National Champion.
This championship qualifies Martinez for the U.S. National Team which will compete internationally. He also will be invited to the Junior Olympic Training Camp in Colorado Springs.
Martinez is a junior at Auburn High School. He trains under Jimmy Goodman at the Patriots’ Gateway Center Boxing Club in downtown Rockford.
