Macon-Bibb boxers bring home belts – again!

Athletes from our Macon-Bibb United Boxing Gym in Freedom Park continued their winning tradition at the Chris Young Free Global Boxing Tournament in Plant City, Fla. August 5-7. Nine of our local competitors entered the ring and our team came home with FIVE champions! The winners in their respective weight classes are Victoria Dumas, Brandon Tirado, Jermaine Randall, Camare Bailes and Gamarion Bailes.

This is the second time athletes have won at this event. The first being in Dothan, Alabama in 2021 where one of our athletes came out on top. Athletes from across North America came to this recent competition.

Boxing center manager James Hand says he’s not surprised his team came home with five belts. “It lets me know that we are doing something right. I cannot, however, take credit for any of this. We have excellent coaches and we are the true definition of a team. Our athletes work hard and work well together. We don’t go to these tournaments to compete – we go to win – and that’s what we did.

Congratulations to all the competitors who represented #teammaconbibb! We are proud of you.

Next up for the Macon-Bibb United team: the 8th anniversary boxing show at Boxing Gym (3301 Roff Avenue.) It starts at noon on Saturday, September 24. The cost is $25 per person. Follow the Macon-Bibb United Facebook page for ongoing updates.
