TERRE HAUTE — There haven’t been many opportunities for me to provide boxing news in the sports section lately, but we will have five amateurs representing Terre Haute’s Sweatbox Gym in the 2013 Indiana Golden Gloves state championships in the coming weeks.

The annual tournament will start this Thursday and continue every Thursday through April 25 at Tyndall Armory in Indianapolis.

The five men being trained by pro boxer James Porter:

• Terre Haute South graduate Justin Smith, 26, will box in the 152-pound weight class of the open division. Porter said he’s had 11 bouts so far.

• Current South senior Tucker Ray, 18, will compete in Sub-Novice 178. He’s had five bouts and won a Silver Gloves state title in 2009 when he weighed only 142, so he’s clearly bulked up in the last four years.

Anthony Carson, 21, of Terre Haute will be in the Open 165 class. Porter said Carson, an Ivy Tech student, has had approximately 14 bouts already and he’s been boxing about four years.

Tony Gable, 17, of Clinton will see action in the Novice 123 class. Porter said Gable, a South Vermillion High School junior, has had 10 fights.

Trevon Childs, 23, of Terre Haute will be battling among the novice heavyweights. Porter said this will be the amateur boxing debut for Childs, a former South basketball and football player and current Indiana State University student.

Smith’s first Golden Gloves bout will be March 28. The other four will debut on one of the Thursdays in April.

“The team has been working really hard,” Porter said. “Looks like we have a nice group of young men. We’re really working hard to try to be successful in the Golden Gloves this year. Hopefully, we can get a couple of state championship winners.”

Bouts are scheduled to have three two-minute rounds until the championship matches in the open division when there will be an increase to four three-minute rounds.

Cards will start at 7:30 p.m. each night. Ringside tickets cost $12 and general-admission tickets go for $10.

David Hughes can be reached after 4 p.m. by phone at 1-800-783-8742, Option 4, or at 812-231-4224; by email at david.hughes@tribstar.com; or by fax at 812-231-4321.
