Great Night of Boxing In Eutamville

Whiterock Boxing attended the Senior State Tournament in Eutawville
South Carolina hosted by FML Boxing and Dexter Ladsen. There were
twelve exciting bouts and a great crowd to boot. Danny Powell and
Brandon Storey from Whiterock trained by Mike English were both
victorious in there first amateur competition.
The hard work and great training by
Coach Mike English was evident as both fighters won in spectacular
style by stopping their opponents in the early rounds. Amateur
boxing trainers and volunteers are a special and dedicated group of
people that work hard to prepare these young men and women and it
shows when they compete for boxing fans. It was nice to see old
friends that I have known for years at the show, Marge and Charlie
Hammond, Noah and Joanne Newman, and Billy and Mrs. Sharpe to name a
These people define amateur boxing and
have kept amateur boxing going in S.C. We thank you. We would also
like to thank Andrew Stokes of Palmetto Boxing and Mike English of
