Today’s first session in Oxnard, Calif. kicked off the 2019 PAL National Championships at the Oxnard PAL Teen Center. This year’s PAL Championships features boxers only in the intermediate, junior and youth divisions. Tomorrow’s session will feature quarterfinal and semifinal bouts and will begin at 12:00 p.m. PST.
The evening session featured nine of the 13 Olympic weight classes and 2 female non-Olympic weight classes. 35 boxers advanced to the next round of competition, which moves them another day closer to Saturday’s finals and guaranteed a spot to the 2020 U.S. Olympic Team Trials for Boxing this December in Lake Charles, La.
This week’s event is serving as the fourth and final Trials qualifying event, with the 26 finalists in the 13 Olympic weight classes rounding out the field at next month’s Olympic Trials. The elite boxers will be back in the ring tomorrow during the 6:00 p.m. session and can be watched on the free USA Boxing live stream by clicking here.
