Thorpe Fights to a Four Round Draw
November 13, 2010

Winston Thorpe (3-0-1) and a game Jesse Barboza (4-1-1), who rallied from being dropped twice in the second round, fought to a 4-round draw. Thorpe had handed Barboza his only loss this past May.

(SEPT 22) Angel Gladney’s bravery and heart was on full display September 18th at L.A.’s Staples Center. Both Angel and her opponent Kaliesha West were without a doubt prepared to go to war for the vacant WBO Bantamweight World Title. The two battled back and forth for seven rounds until a premature stoppage halted Gladney’s Title hopes… at least momentarily. With only 48 months of boxing training Gladney was given the opportunity that most fighters can only fantasize about. Angel Non-Stop Gladney showed poise and exemplary strength when she represented Palmetto Boxing, the White Rock Boxing Gym and the State of South Carolina. Moreover, her challenger was not shy to give credit where it was due saying “I’ve fought ranked fighters and (Gladney) was stronger than them all”. Angel will surely be on the Championship radar, it’s just a matter of time before this young fighter is again in contention of a World Championship. Congratulations to a job well done, we look forward to the return of Non-Stop at home in South Carolina in early 2011.
