San Diego’s premier gym, The Arena, is proud to announce the outstanding performance of its boxing team at the recently concluded California State Golden Gloves tournament in Pasadena. The event, which took place last weekend, saw three of The Arena’s talented fighters claim victory in their respective weight divisions, earning them a spot in the prestigious National Golden Gloves tournament.

Aaron Hardin, competing in the 147-pound weight class, showcased his exceptional skills and determination throughout the tournament. With a display of lightning-fast combinations and clever footwork, Hardin outboxed his opponents to secure the top spot in his division.

In the 156-pound category, Marco Jones proved to be a force to be reckoned with. Jones’ powerful punches and relentless pressure overwhelmed his rivals, leading him to a well-deserved victory and a ticket to the national stage.

Rounding out The Arena’s trio of champions is Joseph Gordon, who dominated the 203+ pound division. Gordon’s imposing presence and heavy-hitting style left no doubt in the judges’ minds as he claimed the top prize in his weight class.

The success of these three fighters is a testament to their hard work, dedication, and the world-class training they receive at The Arena. Under the guidance of coaches Basheer Abdullah, Joe Vargas, Ken Dutkiewicz, and Devin Taylor, the boxers have honed their skills and emerged as true contenders in the world of amateur boxing.

As they prepare for the National Golden Gloves tournament, The Arena’s boxing team carries the hopes and dreams of our entire community. We are confident that they will continue to excel and make San Diego proud on the national stage.

The Arena extends its heartfelt congratulations to Aaron Hardin, Marco Jones, and Joseph Gordon on their remarkable achievements. Their success is an inspiration to aspiring boxers and a shining example of the exceptional talent that calls The Arena home.
