It seem like Flint’s boxing scene is blossoming once again with the resurgence of youth boxers.  Today I found out Ardreal Holmes and Jonathan Scroggins won the Michigan Golden Gloves State Championship over the weekend.

Everyone know that Flint produce great athletes even boxers.  Mr. Holmes and Scroggins seem to be up next to share the spotlight as the next big time athletes to call Flint, Michigan their hometown.

I wish that we as a community would get behind our youth more to help them reach their dreams.  I never heard of the two young men let along knew the boxing scene in Flint was flourishing.  I just want to salute the gentlemen in their new achievement and wish them the best in the future.

Ardreal Holmes and Jonathan Scroggins from the F.W.C. Boxing Club in Flint each won their division in the Michigan Golden Gloves State Championships at the Michigan National Guard Armory in Grand Rapids on Friday and Saturday, March 30 and 31.

Both fighters will now move on to the Male National Golden Gloves Tournament of Champions. The event is at the Casa Blanca Resort in Mesquite, Nev., April 30 through May 5.

“I’m kind of sad that two of my teammates didn’t make it, but I’m excited about it and the tournament is still not over, so we still got ways to go,” said Holmes, a 17-year-old welterweight. “I’m expecting a lot of tough fights because everybody is the best in their state. So, nobody will be playing down there.”

Not only did Scroggins leave Grand Rapids victorious, he also earned the Jack Evola Memorial Award, which is presented annually to the outstanding open boxer in the tourney.
