One more Ontario Junior male will join the others in Friday’s finals. Zishan Khan simply destroyed his opponent in his last effort to capture glory. River Davidson of Manitoba could not deny the experience and determination of this ‘Champion’ boxer. Jordan Letestu came out quite disappointed in his semi final against Saskatchewan. Stuart Twardzik, who made his debut appearance at the Brampton Cup this past February, just would not let Jordan get the upper hand to edge into the final. Great effort goes out to you Jordan!

Tuesday night was very interesting indeed. With 4 out of 6 bouts won, our Ontario junior boys are not discouraged by seeing some of their comrades fall. This set back only fuels the fire even more to win for their teammates. Eyobe Amberber provided a valient fight but could not overcome his Quebec opponent. Colin Fish was having a good fight against Robert Sherman of Alberta, Colin landed an overhand right and KO’d Sherman in the 3rd but as Sherman was falling, Colin threw another punch and subsequently was disqulified for the foul . Ontario coach Don Nelson is in the midst of protesting this foul. Stay tuned for it’s outcome.
