Fuchs defeated in championship bout of U.S. Boxing Elite National Championships

Spokane, WA (Jan. 24, 2015) – Marlen Esparza defeated Ginny Fuchs tonight in the finals of the U.S. Boxing Elite National Championships. With the victory, Esparza is now the 2015 National Champion in the women’s 112-pound weight class.

Despite tonight’s loss, because Fuchs advanced to the championship bout of the U.S. Boxing Elite National Championships this weekend, she automatically qualified for the 8-person U.S. Olympic Trials which will be held in October or November 2015. The 2016 Olympics will only have three weight classes for women's boxing (112, 132, and 165-pound weight classes).
