Grove City 12-Year-Old Wins Major Boxing Championship


They say big things come in small packages.  That is certainly the best way to describe central ohio's newest boxing champion.

Edwardo Dominguez of Grove City has been in the ring since he was 7-years-old.

Now at the age of 12, he is a champion and he has the belt to prove it.

Dominguez is just back from Independence, Missouri where he won the the National Silver Gloves Championship.

"I just want to say I worked hard and I thank my coaches," said Dominguez.

Edwardo admits he is surprised that he won the championship but his coach Vonzell Johnson isn't surprised at all.

He says this kid has all the tools to be a great one.

"He has great potential, ring savy and when he hits you he hits you you know it," said Johnson.
