On Saturday and Sunday, May 18 and 19, Team Quest of Encinitas, CA was the host of this year’s USA Boxing’s Junior Olympic Great West Regional Championships.

For two days, May 18 and 19, 2013, Team Quest Xtreme Fitness of Encinitas, CA. graciously made their gym available for this year’s USA Amateur Boxing’s LBC #44 Junior Olympic Great West Regional Championships. The following write up and videos showcase the young talent that was on display.

Saturday, May 18, 2013

Bout #1, in the 13-14 year-old, 90 pound classification, it was Rafael Delgado from the Southern California regional group defeating Rey Diaz of the Nevada group.

After having his arm raised often at the shows in San Diego, it was most likely a rude awakening for Rodolfo Ortigoza to lose to Christopher Zavala on Saturday.

The last name of Caballero should ring a bell. Rommel’s older brother, 22 year-old Randy “El Matador” Caballero from Coachella, Ca, is a fast rising super bantamweight in the pro ranks. In 2008, he was the U. S. Amateur Flyweight Champion and within three years of turning pro, won two minor belts, one the WBO NABO bantamweight title.

Bout #5, in the 15-16 year-old, 106 pound classification, it was Saul Sanchez from the Southern California regional group defeating Freodis Rojas from the Nevada group by way of a second round RSC (referee stops the contest).

Bout #6, in the 15-16 year-old group, it was Cesar Diaz (119 lbs.) of the So Cal group getting the victory over Alex Rodriguez (118 lbs.) of the Nevada Region by way of a third round RSC (referee stops the contest).
