|Golden Gloves action is set to return to the famous Gleasonís Gym tonight and the event promises to feature a full card of exciting bouts in an assortment of divisions and weight classes, with the women at the center ofthe action.
One of the notable names returning in the womenís division is former Daily News Golden Gloves Champion Alexis Morant. The fighter out of Mendez Boxing Gym won the ultimate prize of the tournament in 2014, made the finals in 2015, and lost in the semifinals in 2016. Last year, when Morant showed up for competition, the 132-pound division didnít have any boxers for her to square off against, so she was faced with the tough decision to move down in weight to the 125-pound division or move up to the 141-pound division ó ultimately choosing the heavier weight class. This year, she will be back in her natural weight division and is determined to repeat the Golden Gloves glory she lived three years ago.|
