2017 USA Boxing National Championships Underway in Salt Lake City

Dec. 05, 2017, 10:58 p.m. (ET)

The 2017 USA Boxing Elite and Youth National Championships & Junior and Prep Open presented by SHOWTIME Sports has brought over 600 boxers to Salt Lake City, Utah’s Salt Palace Convention Center.

This year’s tournament kicked off today with action packed boxing, including the crowning of 11 new champions in the prep and junior divisions, which are listed below.

The evening session began with a bang, as one of the most highly anticipated matchups, Stacia Suttles (Bronx, N.Y.), 2016 international gold medalist and USA National Champion, against Diana Estrada (Hilsboro, Ore.), who was making her elite debut after just boxing earlier this week at the 2017 Youth Women’s World Championships, kicked off the session. The matchup did not disappoint, with Suttles walking away with a close split decision victory.

The session continued to be impressive, as nine elite female boxers advanced one step closer to Saturday’s championship bouts.

With 2018 being a very important year for the youth divisions, the youth male boxers put on a show to close out the day. This year’s tournament will help determine which athletes could potentially represent Team USA at next year’s Youth Olympics and Youth World Championships.

This year’s tournament concludes one of the most successful years for USA Boxing and helps determine those who will become part of the 2018 High Performance squad for Team USA. This marks the second year that the junior divisions have participated in these National Championships and the first for the prep divisions.
