From April 13 to 15, the young fighters will compete in The KC Golden Gloves Tournament at Memorial Hall, located at 600 N. Seventh St. Trafficway. Champions at the regional tournament will then compete at the Golden Gloves National Tournament of Champions, scheduled for May 8-13 in Philadelphia.
Like the national tournament, the Kansas City tournament has weight and age categories for males and females. There are 20 weight classes – 10 male, 10 female.
