BOXING: Igo's boxers shine at 2013 Bobby Hughes National Championship

RICHMOND — Two sets of brothers and Richmond natives from Igo’s Boxing Club traveled to East Tennessee State University in Johnson City, Tenn., from July 17 to 20, for the 2013 Bobby Hughes National Tournament and brought home championships.

The event, in its ninth year, has grown from a local amateur boxing show to a national championship with two rings for nonstop boxing entertainment. Many states were represented at the tournament including Alabama, Kentucky, Tennessee, Virginia, Ohio, Florida, New York, Georgia, and Maryland as well as boxers from Canada.

Thomas Deck (65 pounds, novice division) won the 9-10 year old category, while his brother, Gentry Deck (80 pounds, novice division), won the 11-12 year old category.

Kegan Kavanaugh (119 pounds, open division) won in the 11-12 year old category, while his brother, Anthony Martin (141 pounds, open division), won the 17-18 year old category.

Igo’s Boxing Club is a non-profit organization run by Coach Emmitt Igo, a lifelong Richmond native, whose goal is to teach the art of boxing and fitness in a fun, safe, and energetic atmosphere, while accomplishing one’s personal fitness objective at any age.

Amateur boxing shows are held at Igo’s Boxing and Fitness Center periodically and are open to the public.
