Diamond Tello got in her second bout facing Samantha Lucero of Detroit Lakes at 115 pounds. Tello fought off a charge by her older opponent in Round 1 and then used her long jab to bloody Lucero’s nose and force an eight count.

Tello, a student at Willmar Middle School, landed repeated jabs in the second as Lucero rushed in again; by the third round with Tello still scoring, the referee stopped the fight and Tello went to 2-0.

Alex Duran, 14 years old, outpunched Chace Metelak of Detroit Lakes in all three rounds to win the decision giving the Willmar Golden Gloves Club a 3-0 slate against good competition.
