Dominic Wade Wins Gold Medal at Junior Olympics!

Congratulations to Largo, MD's Dominic Wade who won a gold medal in the middleweight division at the Junior Olympic National Championships in Marquette, Michigan.

Wade defeated Issac Atencio of Denver, CO by a score of 9-3 to capture his second straight Junior Olympic title. Wade also scored his second straight victory over Atencio. Wade beat Atencio earlier this year for the 2006 Silver Gloves championship.

Because of his victory, Wade will travel to Antalya, Turkey to compete in the 2006 Cadet World Championships August 3-14.

Three other Beltway Boxers won silver medals at the Junior Olympics. Gary A. Russell of Capitol Heights lost his final bout in the light welterweight division to Gerardo Iberra, Jr. of Houston, TX by a score of 14-12. Super heavyweight Zakki Scott of Temple Hills was stopped by defending champion Trevor Bryan of Albany, NY in the third round. In the 95-pound division, Darious Moton of Oxon Hill lost by a 14-2 decision to Favian Cervantez of Arleta, CA.

By the way, there was a slight error in the last update on this story. I received information through USA Boxing that Moton and Wade were brothers. That is wrong. My apologies.

Gary, I think those amatures did a great job. However, the young man Dominic Wade is the best amature in the Washington Dc area. No one can get near him when it comes to boxing skills and power. The last time I seen anyone come close to him in boxing skills was the great Sugar ray Leonard. I am quite sure we will hear alot about this guy. I personally seen him give boxing lessons to every other boxer in the entire area. If anyone from around here wins a gold medal in 2008, it will be him. He is trained by the world famous Adrian
Davis and it will remain that way for the reast of his carreer. I will be forwarding pictures to you of this kid thursday. He is pure muscle, not one ounce of fat on him....

Dominic Wade is by far the best amatuer boxer in the Washington DC area period. I am glad to here that he is turning pro February 2009. I still feel that he should stay with his long time trainer AD because he has put alot of time into Dominic. If you read this Dominic remember loyalty.
