71st annual  Lowell Sun Charities Golden Gloves Championship Central N.E. semifinals results

LOWELL, Mass. (February 3, 2017) – Fourteen exciting matches were held last night in the semifinals round of the 71st annual Lowell Sun Charities Golden Gloves Championship, Central New England (Greater Lowell) division, at historic Lowell Memorial Auditorium.
The open and novice championship finals will be held next Thursday night (Feb. 9) at Lowell Memorial Auditorium with men’s and women’s matches.  See the remaining 2017 schedule of events below as well as last night’s complete results.
Last night’s action included nine novice division semifinals matches, eight men’s and one women’s, as well as four open men’s matches. Two of the open matches featured final competitions (not semifinals like the others) as Boston light heavyweight Taylor Mears, representing The Ring gym, stopped Nahua’s (NH) John Xifaris in the second round, and North Chelmsford lightweight Brandon Higgins edged Dorchester’s Jonathan Depina on points, 3-2.
Gloucester’s Gedney brothers, middleweights Adrien and Henry, both won last night, shutting out their opponents (5-0), respectively, James Marino, of Medford, and Furcy Ferreras, of Peabody.  The Gedneys will not fight each other next in next Thursday’schampionship final of the novice super middleweight division.  They will decide which brother will advance and last night’s opponent of the twin that isn’t advancing, Marino or Ferreras, will advance.
Arguably the most action-packed match last night was between lightweights Jeremiah Perez, of Lowell, and Edwin Rozon, of Haverhill, in the open division.  Perez won on points, 5-0, but the game Rozon kept firing despite being dropped in the second round.
Tickets are reasonably priced at $75.00 for general admission season tickets.  To purchase call the Lowell Memorial Auditorium box office at 1.866.722.8881 or order online at www.LowellMemorialAuditorium.com.
