Abel Garcia had his debut match at the Silver Gloves Competition in American Canyon, held November 2nd. His opponent, Christian Montero, on his fourth bout, gave him a run for his money. Abel’s coach, Jovanni, said, “He [Abel] went the distance! It was a very close match, he almost won, but he lost to the champ, who went on advancing to the Nationals. We look forward to a rematch.” Abel came in 2nd in his weight class, and we are very proud of him for having done so well in his debut!
