Patrick Thompson gets victory at NYS Golden Gloves

The first leg of the New York State Golden Gloves championships was held on January 12 at the Tralf Music Club in downtown Buffalo. Twenty two bouts were held in the sub-novice, novice and open classes. The tournament will continue at the Tralf on February 16, March 30 and April 27 with the winners in each weight and class becoming the 2013 NY State Golden Gloves champions. The open division winners will advance to the national Golden Gloves tournament in Salt Lake City, Utah May 11-18th. Four preliminary open bouts were held on the first night. Joe Shell of the Geneva Boxing Club defeated Daniel DeJesus of the Buffalo Westside Boxing Club by 5-0 decision in the 132 pound weight class. Jimmy Garcia of Syracuse Boxing also won by a 5-0 decision over Omar Osman of Roc Boxing in the 165 pound division. Lackawanna Boxing Club's Dante Palmer, a former state GG champion, advanced in the 141 pound division with a narrow 3-2 decision over Jack Grady of the UB boxing team. The main event featured the 201+ division contest between Patrick Thompson of WNY MMA trying to unseat the 2012 champion Drew Graziadei of Casal's Boxing. In what would be the fight of the evening Thompson received the 3-2 decision in a hard fought three round-three minute battle which see-sawed throughout. Thompson's body work was the difference in the very close bout and he will advance to the next round on February 16th. Other class winners are as follows:
