Amateur Boxing Results: USA -vs- Italy

While the attention of Minnesota boxing fans was on Kolle-Vanda 2 last Friday night, the USA and Italy boxing teams were contesting a dual meet in Reno, Nevada.

Amateur boxing is always relevant to fans of pro boxing, because today’s amateurs (obviously) are tomorrow’s pros.  But Minnesota fight fans have more reason than usual to follow our national team; one of our own is on the team.  The young and improving light heavyweight Robert Brant, a resident of Oakdale, is the US national champ at 178#.

Friday night the USA men’s boxing team took four of 12 mens’ bouts – a slight improvement over last time, when they won only three – while Brant dropped a close decision to Simone Fiori, who has beaten him before.  One womens’ bout was also contested, with the USA grabbing a bonus win.
