Field set for 2017 USA Boxing Women's Elite National Championships

PhilBoxing.com


COLORADO SPRINGS, COLO (November 30, 2017) - Team USA women's boxing hopefuls will be competing in the prestigious USA Women's Elite National Championships, December 5-9, in Salt Lake City, Utah.

This year's field is stacked with talent, including 2016 Olympic Trials Champion Virginia Fuchs (Kemah, Texas), who will be looking to close out an impressive 2017 year that included four international titles and an undefeated 16-0 record, and two-time World Champion and 2014 Youth Olympic Champion Jajaira Gonzalez (Fountain, Colo.)


Other top contenders include featherweight Christina Cruz (New York, N.Y), lightweight Rashida Ellis (Lynn, MA), as well as middleweight Naomi Graham (Colorado Springs, CO) and welterweight Oshae Jones (Toledo, Ohio)

Following a year of highly-competitive national events, the best U.S. female amateur boxers are set to compete in the 2017 USA Boxing Elite National Championship. With up to six spots in each division already secured, based on the results of the 2016 Elite National Championships, 2017 Elite Western Qualifier and 2017 Elite Eastern Qualifier, the remaining spots have been filled based on the wild-card application process to complete the field of elite boxers.

A total of 88 boxers applied for a wild card qualification with 35 allocations awarded to finalize the Elite National Championships brackets.

"With this being the first year of the new elite athlete selection process, we are excited to see the top talent in the country compete to represent Team USA in 2018," said Matt Johnson, USA Boxing High Performance Director. "We are looking forward to a high level of competition during these championships, and are confident that the increased competitiveness at the national stage will translate to further improvement of USA's performance internationally on the road to Tokyo in 2020."

Below is the final list of elite boxers, in order of ranking, who will contend for the title of national champion:
