Douglas Heads to Challenger's Bracket Finals; Crews is Eliminated!

Only one Beltway Boxer remains eligible for a berth on the US Olympic Women's Boxing team. That boxer is Tyrieshia Douglas who heads into tomorrow's 112-pound Challenger's bracket finals by virtue of a 31-19 win over Virginia Fuchs of Kemah, TX.

Douglas will now face Christina Cruz of New York City Thursday in a rematch of a bout earlier in the week. Cruz won the first meeting.

But for Franchon Crews of Baltimore, the Olympic dream is over. Crews lost a 23-15 decision to Raquel Miller of San Francisco, CA in the 165-pound bracket and that eliminates Crews from the competition.

Tiera Brown, who trains at the Headbangers Gym in DC. but is out of Florida, is also out as she lost her challenger's bracket semis to Mikaela Meyer of Los Angeles, CA at 132 pounds.
