The Western Pennsylvania Police Athletic League (WPAL) is thrilled to announce that for the seventh year in a row, the Western Pennsylvania Golden Gloves Championships are returning to DuBois.
This year’s event will feature local prospects who have been training at the WPAL Fitness Center on East Long Avenue, including a return to the ring for Landen Buchanon, who fought to a decision win at last year’s event. In addition to local competitors, the event will host young talent from across western and central Pennsylvania.
DuBois Country Club, located at 10 Lakeside Ave, DuBois, PA will host the boxing card on Saturday, March 16. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.; boxing begins at 7:30.
WPAL Executive Director Aaron Beatty said, “We couldn’t be more excited to bring this event back to the DuBois Area for the 7th year in a row! It seems to get better every year! ”
