Several locals are slated to fight in this coming weekend’s New Mexico State Silver Gloves boxing tournament at Crespin’s Gym.
Mateo Gold will be competing in one of the brackets, said promoter and Silver Gloves coordinator Carlos Crespin. And locals Wally Diaz, Justin Saiz and Savanna Trujillo of Mora may be boxing in show bouts, he noted.
First bout starts 6 p.m. Friday at the gym, located at 900 West Valencia St. The event resumes Saturday and Sunday.
Tickets are $12 general admission and $8 students; children under 5 are admitted free. For more information, those interested may call Crespin at 429-4068 or 425-1422.

The amateur tournament is the first step toward regional competition early in 2013.
