Hometown Heroes Boxing® results at the Charleston Civic Center Coliseum, Charleston, WV, October 27, 2012

For the first time since 1992, amateur boxing was held in the Coliseum of the Charleston Civic Center as a result of political rallies being held in the North and South Halls of the Civic Center. Although our small fan base looked small in the 13,500 seat arena, everyone enjoyed themselves. We can't say enough about the boxers...they put on a grand performance. There were 22 action packed bouts including seven Hometown Heroes Boxing Championship bouts. 22 bouts is a lot of boxing for one night but the boxers wanted to box so we let them box. We saw several new comers that showed a lot of promise and veterans that continue to improve. While there were several bouts that were simply outstanding, the HHB pick of the outstanding boxing match of the night was the double championship bout between Billy Pullen, defending HHB State Open Class Champion and Avery Silas, defending State High School Division Champion. Both boxers used skill and punching power for three exciting rounds. In the end, it was Pullen's experience that won the bout. AMATEUR BOXING IS BACK IN WEST VIRGINIA...don't let anyone tell you it isn't.

The Quantum Sports Center results on April 14, 2012.

The first ever boxing at the Quantum Sports Center in Hurricane, WV saw several exciting bouts before a small crowd. Students from Roane County once again dominated the high school age competition overall. The bouts saw Collin Pierce of DuPont Middle School avenge a loss by defeating Elijah Dyess of South Charleston Middle School. The fighting Hamm brothers of the Dawg House Gym continued their undefeated streak. Chelsey Keathley of Marshall University defeated Victoria Ream of Sherman High in the only female bout of the night. There were two other female bouts won by walkover. The outstanding bout of the night had Travis "Road Runner" Jerwig of Zanesville High/Zanesville PAL coming off of the floor in the first round to defeat Branson Johnson of Piketon High in a barn burner. Jerwig showed why he is a five time national champion. For his performance, he walked off with a gold medal, winner's trophy, Boxer of the Night trophy and a championship belt. Anthony Mullens won the vacant HHB All-Comers by points over CC "The Long Branch Legend" Morgan of Simon, WV. Matt McLendon of the Zanesville PAL defeated Austin Mullens for the 132 pound HHB championship. Brandon Kitts of Buckeye Boxing pulled a mild upset over Brian "Pretty Boy" Varney of Sparks Old School Boxing and Ohio Christian University. Draven Parson of Roane County High defeated James Arthur of Scott High for the HHB 152 Pound 15-16 year old championship belt. Parsons was the outstanding boxing in the 2012 HHB State Championships in Charleston last month. The complete results of the event are as follows:

Charleston Civic Center, March 2 & 3, 2012

Roane County High students came to the 2012 West Virginia Hometown Heroes Boxing State Championships without any boxing experience at all on Friday, March 2, 2012 and when it was all over on Saturday, March 3, 2012, they returned to Roane County with the team championship, four individual champions, including the Outstanding Boxer of the Tournament, and four runners-up. They also had the loudest cheering section...sorry, no award for that! Congratulations to the Roane County boxers who put on an amazing show. Maybe the most exciting bout of the championships ocurred during the semi-finals when Billy Pullen of Riverside High defeated Jacob Sparks of Piketon High (OH) in a slugfest that had both boxers throwing punches for three solid rounds from corner post to corner post. There were several othr bouts that were a close second to the Pullen-Sparks bout. Savana Casto of Ravenswood High made history by becoming the first HHB female champion.

The complete results of the two day event are shown below beginning with the finals first.

Baileysville Community Center, January 28, 2012

The students from Mingo Central took team honors as most of the students from Westside who signed up to box did not even bother to show up. Westside had won the team honors the previous three years. Michael Harless of Cyclone, WV, Concord Universidy and Dawg House Gym, captured the Super Heavyweight Championship of the Coalfields by a points victory over C. C. Morgan of Long Branch, WV. Morgan took the bout on the evening of the event because Harless' opponent Sam Dowdy of Pikeville, KY did not show up. T. J. "The Hitman" Hensley who attends East Community High in Sciotoville, OH scored a points decision ove Travis "Slammin" Salmons who attends Mingo Central High in a slubfest. In another exciting match, J. D. Blankenship, who attends Westside High, captured a split points victory over Nathaniel Mounts who attends Mingo Central High. The decision was loudly booed by the fans. The complete results are shown below.

2011 Baileysville Hooks for Books Boxing, Baileysville Community Center March 18, 2011

The coalfields were treated to an exciting evening of Hooks for Books Boxing. There was something for all boxing fans from the free swingers beginners with to experienced boxers with a more polished style. 129 pound Nathaniel Mounts of Gilbert High displayed strong punching power for his weight class in scoring a points victory over John Blankenship of Westside High. Mounts scored three knockdowns on his way to the win making him one of the top contenders for the Lightweight Challenge Belt Chamionship. Newcomer Vendell Williams of Riverview High displayed potential in his points victory over Charles Michael Hatfield of Gilbert High. Dylan Newsome of Baileysville Middle School scored a quick victory with a first round stoppage over Brandon Mitchell of Gilbert High. In a more experienced bout Heath Cline of Westside High scored a points win over Josh Blankenship of Westside in an outstanding boxing match. These two boxers may be the best HFBB Middleweights in the state and they go to the same school and train in the same gym. They will, in all likelihood, box again for the HFBB challenge belt championship. All in all, Hooks for Books Boxing is excited about the potential displayed by several boxers. Riverview High made a good showing with three wins and one loss in the school's first appearance in Hooks for Books Boxing. We are extremely proud of all boxers that participated in the event. We need a few gyms in the area to help the young men get in shape and sharpen their skills. HFBB is willing to work with adults wanting to start boxing clubs in the Southern Coalfields. If anyone is interested, please contact Gary Toney at 304-768-3614 or Benny Toler at 304-682-4032. Following are the complete results of the competition.
