Evan Wrazidlo and Daniel Huffman won their divisions - which are 141 pounds and 152 pounds - respectively - to earn spots at the up coming Upper Midwest Golden Gloves in Walker. Wrazidlo won the best boxer award. Both are now two-time winners at the Region 2 and both have advanced to national tournaments before and that's the goal. This year - National Golden Gloves are in Omaha, Nebraska in May.

"I have been able to break down things more in my head while going through the fight. Rather before, I would have to listen to what my coaches are saying. Now, I'm seeing it with him," says Wrazidlo.

"The best of the best boxers win these tournaments and win nationals and it is an honor to be out there and lets get out there and get some wins," says Huffman.
