The Armed Forces Boxing Championship is a 10-week TPC Sports series, shot on location at Naval Base Ventura County, CA. Each week, boxers from 10 different weight classes compete for the gold medal and title of Armed Forces Boxing Champion.
The All-Army Boxing team won the team award in the 2011 Armed Forces Boxing Championships held Feb. 18 at Lackland Air Force Base, Texas. This marks the 20th year in a row the Army has won the event.
Army boxers entered the finals undefeated in the preliminaries, and a Soldier fought in each gold-medal fight.
The Marine Corps broke the Army’s winning streak when Lance Cpl. Abraham Lopez dominated Spc. Guy Jean-Baptiste, shutting him out for the first two rounds and holding him at bay in the third for the 16–5 win. Lopez took gold in the 123 lb. weight class.
