Team USA closes 2022 AMBC Championships with four gold and two silver medals

by USA Boxing

Team USA finished the final day of competition at the 2022 AMBC Elite Championships by wining four gold and two silver medals. 

Flyweight Roscoe Hill (Spring, Texas) started the day with a dominating performance over Cuba’s Frislan Romero to take the gold medal. Hill was too quick for Romero, as the 2021 Elite World Championship silver medalist easily landed numerous punches on him, while Romero struggled to land his own punches on the American, to take all five judges’ cards. 

Obed Bartee-El (Harvest, Ala.) continued his impressive tournament run with his own unanimous decision victory to win his first international gold medal. Bartee-El defeated Mexico’s Hector Martinez to stand atop the podium. 

2021 Elite Men’s World Champion Rahim Gonzales (Las Vegas, Nev.) picked up right where he left off in Serbia to add another international title to his resume. Gonzales took four out of the five judges’ cards against Brazil’s Isais Ribeiro in route to the gold medal. 

Jamar Talley (Camden, N.J.) closed out the day for Team USA with his own gold medal performance. The heavyweight won unanimously over Carlos Moreno of Mexico to secure the gold medal for himself and pick up Team USA’s sixth of these championships. 

The final two American’s, Jahmal Harvey (Oxon Hill, Md.) and Arjan Iseni (Staten Island, N.Y.), earned silver medals, picking up Team USA’s 12th and 13th medal overall.
