It was another action-packed day of boxing at the 2019 Eastern Elite Qualifier & Regional Open at the Greater Columbus Convention Center in Columbus, Ohio, as over 400 boxers stepped into one of five rings throughout two sessions of boxing.

The day got started with the junior and prep divisions taking to the ring for the first time of this year’s tournament. The boxers competing in these divisions are vying for valuable national ranking points, which will be earned by the top 8 in each division. Tomorrow’s noon session will be the finals for the junior and prep female boxers. 

The evening session started with the youth male boxers competing in their opening round, while the youth females had their semifinal bouts. The session also saw the first round of boxing for the elite female boxers vying for their spot at the 2020 U.S. Olympic Team Trials for Boxing that will be held this December in Lake Charles, La. Five of the eight men’s Olympic weight classes continued their journey to Saturday’s finale with high intensity bouts throughout the session.

Boxing will continue with two sessions tomorrow, noon and 6:00 p.m. Follow all the action with our free live stream by clicking here.
