Two women boxers with CD ties have continued their dominance in the ring. Jenn Hamann and Queen Underwood have both brought home gold medals from the Women’s Continental Championships.
International newcomer Jennifer Hamann (Seattle, Wash.) duplicated the efforts of her much more experienced teammates in the featherweight finale against Argentina’s Karen Carvajal. Hamann wasted no time in winning her first international gold, taking an 18-15 decision over Carvajal to add a Women’s Continental Championships title to her resume.
2012 Olympian Queen Underwood (Seattle, Wash.) boasted the longest road in the tournament to her gold medal at the 2013 Women’s Continental Championships. Competing in the deepest weight class in the event, Underwood boxed every day of the event en route to a lightweight final round match-up with Argentina’s Dayana Sanchez. Underwood earned a 19-11 decision over Sanchez to win Continental Championships gold after falling short of the medal stand in the 2012 event.
