TICKETS NOW ON SALE —- Tulsa will host the Golden Gloves of America National Tournament of Champions in 2021. The prestigious national amateur boxing tournament will take place at the Cox Business Convention Center August 9-14, 2021. The Engine Room Boxing Gym, in collaboration with the Tulsa Sports Commission and the Kansas-Oklahoma Golden Gloves Franchise, will coordinate the event.
National Golden Gloves began in 1923 when Chicago Tribune Sports Editor Arch Ward conceived the idea of a newspaper sponsored citywide amateur boxing tournament. Champions were awarded a miniature golden glove. Many great professional boxers have launched their early athletic careers participating as amateurs in Golden Gloves tournaments. Golden Gloves continues to play a major role in the selection of representatives for the U.S. team in the Olympic Games.
