Local Boxer in Golden Gloves Tournament of Champions

Posted: Updated:

Augusta, GA (WJBF) -- Ray Whitfield is the last Augustan to win a prestigious Golden Gloves boxing title back in 2002. Now he's training a young boxer who he thinks has what it takes to win another championship.

Lakeside High School senior Nicholas Torrance is heading to Utah to fight in the Golden Gloves Tournament of Champions. He will compete in the 141 pound weight class. Whitfield has been working with Torrance for 10 years, basically since right after he won the title.

Torrance is hoping to not only win a Golden Gloves title but also eventually qualify for the Olympics in 2016.
