Sacramento amateur boxer hopes to break through into pro boxing scene

Lorenzo Powell continues to make a name for himself among the amateur ranks but has eyes towards making it to the pro league. With roughly 40 amateur matches under his belt, his coach said he has done things that can’t normally be accomplished after 100 matches, including a first-place finish at the USA Boxing Summer Festival in Wichita, Kansas earlier this month. He followed up his victories in Kansas with a golden performance at the California Golden Gloves in Fresno, California. His next stop takes him to the Golden Gloves Nationals in Tulsa, Oklahoma next month. This is now his second time being featured on My58 Superstars, the first time more than 3 years ago when he was still in high school. See more of Powell’s journey in the video player above.
