One of the smallest fighters at Delgado’s Boxing Club, Evan Longoria’s stock skyrocketed over the weekend when the Alice youngster won the 80-pound Pee Wee Division at the 2018 Regional Golden Gloves Boxing Tournament in Corpus Christi.

Longoria defeated Jordan Boren of Azteca Warriors with a series of accurate punches in their bout Thursday night.

Longoria is coached by Oscar Delgado and boxing coaches Roy Garcia and Jason Trevino.

Longoria is one of a handful of young fighter who are training at Delgado’s Boxing Club for an upcoming “smoker” in Corpus Christi.
