The tradition of the Golden Gloves is alive and well in the amateur boxing world.

This year’s Golden Gloves will take place at Langley’s Coast Convention Centre and will showcase some of the best fighters in B.C.

A much anticipated fight will be the rematch between Samuel Moses and Ken Huber.

Samuel Moses of Vancouver’s Sargeant’s Boxing is ranked #1 in B.C. as both a Cruiserweight and Heavyweight. He will be taking on B.C. Cruiserweight and Heavyweight Champion Ken Huber of Kamloops.

Huber was on his way to the pros until he was upset by Samuel a month ago in a non-title fight Oct. 3 at the B.C. Silver Gloves. Huber was matched against the up and coming Samuel and lost a four round decision.

There is a lot at stake for Huber who is one of B.C.’s most popular boxers, and a win would put him back on track to turning pro in 2016.

Langley’s Amanda Pak will face former Canadian Champion Rosallia Calla of North Burnaby Boxing in a 118 lb. fight. Both boxers have been matched before and for one reason or another have not fought. Calla won the Canadian WBC Championships in 2013 and is a veteran of the ring.

City Boxing’s Scott Woodward will be fighting Cody Sahlstrom of Island MMA in Victoria in a 140 lb. match.

Also from Victoria, twin brothers Paul and Peter Lopez will be in action. The Lopez twins have made an impression over the last couple of years and will be looking to add a Golden Gloves to their trophy chest. At just 20 the two welterweights are definitely in the top prospects list and both will be tested at this year’s Golden Gloves. Former B.C. Champion, White Rock’s Josh Wright of Ocean City Boxing, will take on one of the Lopez brothers, the other will fight Qaeir Hamid of Vancouver’s Eastside Boxing.

There will be 10 fights on the show at the Coast Convention Centre in downtown Langley in the Clash@The Cascades. Show starts at 7:30 on Friday, Nov. 6. There is free parking and a bar and concession. Tickets at the door at $30; kids 12 and under are admitted free of charge.
