Carubba Collision sponsored the New York State Golden Gloves finals, which were held on April 26, 2014, at the Tralf Music Hall in downtown Buffalo, NY.
Over 160 boxers throughout the state in the sub-novice, open class (male and female), and masters division bouts all participated at the championships in Buffalo. When the final bell rang, 25 new Golden Glove Champions were crowned. Making the formal ceremonial presentations of the awards to the winners and stepping into the ring to do the honors was Carubba Collision president Joe Carubba.
“Joe Carubba has been a tremendous supporter of amateur boxing and the Golden Gloves for a long time,” stated Don Patterson, NYS Golden Gloves president. “Without the support of Carubba Collision, it would be impossible to put on this tournament, which benefits thousands of kids in Western New York,” added Patterson.
“I believe in what the Golden Gloves stands for, and I’m proud to support this longstanding American boxing tradition,” said Joe Carubba. “These tournaments help teach kids so much about discipline, respect, dedication, and sportsmanship,” Carubba said.
