CARLOS BALDERAS GETS FIRST BOXING WIN FOR THE USA

By Ed de la Vega, DDS

07 Aug 2016



Several weeks ago when Carlos Balderas came to our offices to get his mouthguard for the Rio2016 Olympics, he did not guarantee us that he will win the gold medal. However, he promised us that he will leave it all in the ring and give the performance of his life every time he steps in to fight.

On the opening day of the boxing events, Balderas fought his first Olympic match. The luck of the draw fitted him against a wily veteran from Kazakhstan, Berik Abrakhmanov.

In spite of being an Eastern European for some quirky reason, the predominantly Brazilian crowd favored the Kazak against the young Balderas.

But Balderas was not about to disappoint the almost two dozen supporters from the bucolic city of Santa Maria, CA.

Balderas gave it his all and ended beating the Kazak and in the process gave the young US Boxing Team an inspiration and an example to follow. He also gave himself an early birthday present. Balderas turns 20 on August 24th.

Yahoo sports quoted US coach, Billy Walsh as saying “That was impressive”, in reference to Balderas’ performance against the much experienced Kazak.

No one knows if Balderas will get his second win on Tuesday and go all the way to center podium with a gold medal in his neck.

But like he promised us, he will leave it all in the ring.
