Cranbrook Eagles bring home silver medals

Three Cranbrook boxers went to the Alberta Golden Gloves Tournament and made it to the final round


Three Cranbrook Eagles Boxers brought home silver medals from the Alberta Golden Gloves Tournament.

Connor Ferrier at 36 Kilograms, Ty Kolbeck at 60 Kilograms and Nike Blackmore at 91 Kilograms all represented Team BC.

Ferrier lost the 36 Kilogram final to Andrew Miller from Calgary, both of the boxers went toe-to-toe for three exciting rounds.

When Kolbeck got into the ring he went up against Alain Balon from Calgary. Balon is the number two ranked boxer in Canada for the 60 Kilogram weight class. Kolbeck’s strong third round kept the fight close, but not enough to beat his classy opponent.

Blackmore earned a unanimous decision against Calgary boxer Mike Gardner to earn his way into the final.

In the finals, Blackmore went up against the Saskatchewan Heavy Weight Champion Darcy Feser. Feser stalked Blackmore throughout the fight leaving little room for Blackmore to move. Despite winning the third round Blackmore lost the decision.

The Alberta Golden Gloves Tournament attracted 160 boxers from across British Columbia, Alberta and Saskatchewan. It is one of the bigger competitions in Western Canada.
