Three boxers succeed at Queensland Golden Gloves

Three Umina PCYC boxers made a successful debut in Queensland's Golden Gloves boxing tournament.

Anja Stridsman, Kaye Scott and Anthony Capra all competed in the event and all came away with their division medals.

Anthony was up first for Umina PCYC, winning his first bout with a technical knockout.

Umina PCYC boxing coach Mr Joel Keegan said Anthony continued his matches in fine form right up until the final.

"In the final, Anthony was up against a fellow NSW competitor and both boys put on a quality display, but Anthony stepped up and got the job done, taking his medal," Mr Keegan said.

The win bodes well for Anthony, who was making his boxing debut at the Golden Gloves.

Anja's run through her division mirrored Anthony's, with a strong opening fight transitioning into a well-earned finals berth.

Mr Keegan said Anja's final fight progressed into a technical bout against her New Zealand opponent with Anja's skill and experience propelling her to her division win.

Kaye said her finals experience reminded her of the perils of professional athleticism.

"My semi-final bout was against a tough southpaw opponent from New Zealand, a relatively easy win but with a sluggish performance.

"I could definitely feel that the body hadn't had a rest day for two weeks," Kaye said.

"The fight helped me mentally by proving you can get the job done even when you're not feeling 100 per cent.

"It also allowed me to practice different skills and tactics in a more relaxed competition mode," she said.

Kaye's final fight was against another New Zealand opponent, Chrissy Reid, which Kaye won in the second round when the referee called the match in her favour.

Mr Keegan said he was thrilled to see his athletes all walk away with medals.

"I'm very happy as the coach to come away from such a big tournament with these great results.

"The girls are in full preparation for a shot at the World Champs in Russia later this month, while Anthony is hoping to qualify for his first Nationals in October.

"Both Anja and Kaye set a great standard in the gym for their teammates to follow and there's no better example of that influence than Anthony, where his dedication to training and progress as a boxer has been top shelf," Mr Keegan said.
