Boxing: Zavala posts win at Wadena, Reyes may be through
Willmar Minnesota 2208 Trott Ave. SW / P.O. Box 839 56201

Willmar team member Eloy Zavala, 16, won a decision fighting Wadena rival Kevin Harper on Saturday at the Wadena Armory in Region IV Golden Gloves.

Harper jabbed the Willmar teen repeatedly but Zavala scored with looping hooks to win a razor-thin decision.

Santo Reyes, 19, took on Nate Rubin, 24, in his first fight this season. Santos shoulder gave out in the second round but he kept fighting until his knees buckled after another flurry by Rubin, 10 pounds heavier.

Coach Kirk Davis speculates that Reyes is done boxing because of the recurring shoulder injury. These bouts and others from the past two year can be viewed at www.youtube.com/user/WillmarGoldenGloves.
