Briscoe wins Tony Rubino Trophy at Brigade Boxing Championships

| March 1, 2015 | 1 Comment

With a fight that was stopped by the referee, Keon Briscoe, a 1st Class Midshipman, became the 19th recipient of the Tony Rubino Trophy. The Rubino Trophy is for a Midshipman who wins the match for four consecutive years and is named for former Navy boxing coach Tony Rubino.

In front of a 3,000 person crowd at Alumni Hall, the Midshipmen battled it out in a dozen matches including three that featured female Midshipmen.

Two of the bouts were technical knockouts; but scored as an RSC, or referee stopped contest. These bouts were the 195 pound class between Keon Briscoe and Vincente Huerta, and the heavyweight match between Dan Gallien (winner) and Solomon Belhu.

In recognition of the 74th year of the championships, members of the Class of 74 played an integral role for the evening witg a grad signing the National Anthem and other members presenting the medals to the participants.

This event is an annual free event and is a signature event at the Naval Academy and is open to the public. If you have never been, you are missing out on a special evening.
