The Revelstoke Boxing Club attended the Tomorrows Champions Tournament in Cranbrook on Saturday, April 22. Revelstoke Boxing Club members won both of their fights at this tournament.

Fighting for Revelstoke was Iosvany Armenteros and Domenic Lentini.

Lentini boxed Kenny Stanton of the Nelson Boxing Club. From the first bell, Lentini took control of the pace of the match keeping his opponent on the defensive for the entirety of the fight. He scored two standing eight counts against his opponent, the first in the second round and another in the third round before the referee stopped the contest giving the win to Lentini by TKO in the third round.

Armenteros boxed Jesse Lyons of the Nelson Boxing Club. Utilizing skillful head movement and sharp counter punching, Armenteros proved to be too much for the older and more experienced opponent. Armenteros scored knockdowns in the second and third rounds, and scored a standing eight count after the second knockdown before winning his bout by split decision.

This was the fourth match for Armenteros and second for Lentini.

“These two boxers have developed their own very skilled and distinct styles and continue to be a testament to the capabilities and training of the Revelstoke Boxing Club,” said coach A.J. Lerose.

The next event the Revelstoke Boxing Club will attend will be “Fight Night III” on May 20, hosted by the Nelson Boxing Club. Armenteros is scheduled to have a rematch with the Nelson boxer Lyons.
