Peekskill Be First Boxing Scores Another Victory in NYC

Amateur fighter Omar Hassan, who fights out of the Peekskill Be First Boxing gym, scored a win against last year's Golden Gloves, Trevor Meyers, in New York City Saturday night.

Peekskill Be First Boxing continued its string of success Saturday night when boxer Omar Hassan scored a victory over last year's metro Golden Gloves champ, Trevor Meyers, at the Mendez Boxing Club in New York City.

Hassan isn't the only fighter out of Peekskill Be First Boxing to have success this month. Krashna Gibbs won his first Golden Gloves amateur boxing match at the Longwood Police Athletic League, located in the Bronx, on Feb. 6.

@ Joshua, you are absolutely correct. Fred Spry as well as several other coaches, are now helping the youngsters to become better young men and women, as well as, great fighters.

Congratulations to the Be First Boxing Team! Love to see/hear of Peekskill athletes returning to competition in the Golden Gloves; so much history and an experience that these young men will remember forever. The sport helped me focus, find calm and quiet at challenging times, instilled structure and discipline, and last but not least, a humble self esteem. The "sweet science" is the ultimate physical and psychological challenge one can choose to face. Stay your course Omar ... just as I suggested to Gibbs ... train as you were ... trust anf faith in the team ... and leave it all in the ring for those glorious 9 minutes! Loose, snap, crisp, accurate, economical, feign, read tendencies, expose, and put together those combinations! Best of luck to all
