The USA Boxing National Championships will return to Colorado Springs in July. Over 200 of the nation's top Olympic-style boxers, both male and female will compete in the tournament, which is being presented by the Daniels Fund and co-hosted by the Colorado Springs Sports Corporation.
"We are excited to have the USA Boxing National Championships back in Colorado Springs where the event has been successful," said Mike Martino, Interim Executive Director. "With the support of the Daniels Fund, the Colorado Springs Sports Corporation and the U.S. Olympic Committee, this event will once again be one of the top sports events in Colorado."
The Pikes Peak region has played host to the tournament in 20 of the last 22 years with the only exceptions being trips to Las Vegas in 2002 and Denver last year.
The event begins on July 12. Tickets will go on sale on March 1.
