Flint’s Adreal Holmes Three-Peats at State Golden Gloves, Heads to Nationals

Flint’s boxing scene is getting stronger with Adreal Holmes three peat at the State of Michigan’s Golden Gloves competition.  Now the punching machine is headed to the national Golden Gloves again. 

Holmes regained the championship for the third time on April 19th in Grand Rapids against Eddy Herrera of Wyoming, Michigan.  In addition to winning the championship, the Flint boxer was awarded the Nick Spruit Memorial Award.  His girlfriend, Claressa Shields, cheered him on ring side during the entire fight.

Coming in May, the Michigan Golden Gloves champ has another shot at being the first boxing in Flint to win the national Golden Gloves award after coming up short last year.  Holmes suffered from poor conditioning and injury which prevented him to bring home the national title.  Holmes told MLive that this year nothing will prevent a victory.

“Nothing will stop me, no matter how tired I get or any injury that I suffer this year,” Holmes said. “I felt really confident this year, but I still don’t overlook any opponents. The guys on the national level are not ahead of me. In my first year or two, the national stage kind of intimidated me but I know that I’m of the best around.”

We’re extremely proud to have another young Flint native making positive strides with their talents.  Holmes seems ready to bring the first national Golden Gloves title to the ‘Vehicle City.’  Make sure you keep watch out for more positive news from Adreal Holmes.
