2019 Eastern Elite Qualifier Championships Field Set

Oct. 11, 2019, 4:34 p.m. (ET)
After six action-packed days, the final 26 elite boxers in the 13 Olympic weight classes that will compete for the title of the 2019 Eastern Elite Qualifier champion is set.

Today consisted of only one session, which crowned 42 junior and prep male champions, as well as served as the semifinals for the remaining junior and youth male weight classes that will start the final day of competition tomorrow.

The 26 winners in today’s elite bouts punched their ticket to the 2020 U.S. Olympic Team Trials for Boxing that will take place this December in Lake Charles, La. 

Tomorrow’s championship bouts in the elite divisions will help determine seeding in Louisiana, as well as give ranking points for the USA Boxing National Rankings. All boxers finishing in the top 8 in their weight class and division will earn points.

The elites that fell short in today’s semifinal bouts will have one more opportunity to qualify to the event in December at the Last Chance Qualifier in Oxnard, Calif., Nov. 2-9.
