USA Boxing National Championships

When: July 12-17 2010

Quick, tell me a sporting event that has been around since 1888, more than 120 years ago. Not the World Series, Stanley Cup or golf's U.S. Open. The answer will take place here this week, from today through Saturday: the USA Boxing National Championships, with about 300 competitors — including many likely 2012 Olympians — among the participants. Everything until the finals will be free admission, contested in Sports Center I at the Olympic Training Center (1 Olympic Plaza, usaboxing.org), with sessions starting at noon and 6 p.m. today through Wednesday, noon and 5:30 p.m. Thursday, and 1 p.m. Friday. Tickets for the July 17 finals, starting at 7 p.m. at the Crowne Plaza (2886 S. Circle Drive), at $15 in advance, $20 at the door, via ticketswest.com. — Ralph Routon
