Casal's crew set for Golden Gloves


Niagara Gazette — Defending women's open-division champion Brianna Smith will face Inspire's Mikiah Kreps in a female open-division match.

"Brianna has only had a couple fights so the women's golden gloves is a good chance for her to get some experience," Casal said. "I'm excited for her. She's real strong – what she lacks in skill she makes up for in toughness and strength."

As for Graziadei, he expects a well-rounded tournament and had a message for his super-heavyweight opponents.

"It’s a new tourney with fresh faces and awesome talent," he said. "I can’t overlook anyone and anything can happen. But they do have to get by me, and I wish them the best of luck."

The first of today's 34 fights begins at 5 p.m. Doors open at 4:30 p.m.
