Invite them to approach boxing or any sport. Totally grateful”, commented Franco Balzaretti, provincial champion up to 75kg.
“The experience was good, I felt pretty good. Yesterday there were two fights, I threw the first with everything, and the second also good, very hard. It’s not my weight, so they were very hard. I’m going to start going down in December, because I want to start my career as a professional”, assured Yaciel Gener, after the final match against Brian Díaz from Pico Truncado.
“I am enormously grateful for Commodore’s attention. We recently spoke with Hernán Martínez about the support they gave so that the Provincial Tournament could take place, after we had not obtained a place from the province. The number of people who joined, the technicians who joined efforts to reach Comodoro. It was gratifying to have participated, it was a festival where we saw great boxers, a great projection of the province. We hope that this will be a kick for more localities to commit themselves to summoning the Federation to work post-championships with greater organization and time, and especially with greater support so that the boys can fulfill their dreams and have representation at the national level” commented Martín Romero, representative of the Chubutense Boxing Federation.
