BANGKOK, Thailand (May 27, 2024) -- Jamar Talley (Camden, N.J.) mades a statement win in his Second Olympic World Qualification Tournament debut. Talley went head-to-head with Ali Faithigovashini out of Iran. Talley, however, made this a quick fight and ended it in the first round due to a referee stoppage.

“I am just thankful for another opportunity to qualify for Paris. All glory to God and I am thankful for my team and coaches and on to the next one,” a determined Jamar Talley stated after his debut at the 2024 World Qualification Tournament.

Robby Gonzales (Las Vegas, Nev.) and Naomi Graham (Fayetteville, N.C.) also fought today. Graham was the first Team USA boxer to go this morning as she fought hard but fell short 4-1 to Vivlane Pereira from Brazil.

As for Gonzales, he started off strong against Weerapon Jongjoho from Thailand and took the first round 4-1. However, Jongjoho, with the home crowd advantage, took the second round 5-0. Gonzales tried to fight back and took the final round 3-2 but just wasn’t enough and lost in a heart-breaker 3-2.

Team USA will see Shera Mae Patricio (Waianae, Hawaii) and Emilio Garcia (Laredo, Texas) box tomorrow. Patricio will make her debut and represent Team USA in the 54 kg weight division.
