2008 Brampton Cup
Motor City sent a team to the 2008 Brampton Cup, and finished with 2 gold medals & 3 Silver.

"Cool Hands" Luke Caride won a very close 26-25 decision over fellow Motor City fighter, Evan Gillard. This was the 10th bout for Caride, but it was just the 2nd bout for Gillard, who proved that, with a little more experience, he will definitely be a force to be reckoned with in the Cadet C 39 kg division. Gold medal for Caride, silver for Gillard

Kieran Murphy made short work of his opponent, Robert Jake Rock, of Ajax. Murphy got started right away & the referee eventually stopped the contest in the 1st round to spare the Ajax boxer any further punishment. Gold medal for Murphy.

Kyle "TNT" Wright had no opponent registered at 60 kg, so he moved up a weight class to face long-time rival Martin Halibus. The fight was close for the first two rounds, but Halibus mounted a strong attack in the 3rd round, and Wright was unable to match Halibus with scoring blows. Silver medal for Wright.

Last but not least, super-heavyweight Spencer Rolfe showed much improvement since his last bout, but it wasn't enough, as he lost to Peter Kouzos of the always tough European Boxing Club. Silver medal for Rolfe.

Caride, Gillard, Murphy, & Wright will next travel to the Ontario Winter Games being held March 6-8 in Stayner, Ontario. Joining them will be new comers Shaun Maddox-Vogel & Emily Ottowel.

Stay tuned for results from the Winter Games!
