In the spring of 2014, one of amateur boxing's most anticipated tournaments in New Jersey returned to Jersey City. From February through April, Golden Gloves held eight fight nights exclusively in Hudson County as boxers competed to represent the Garden State at the 2014 Tournament of Champions in Las Vegas.

These images span three events through March and April, including the final bout in which Tony Rivera took the title and advanced to Las Vegas over opponent and fellow Jersey City fighter Denzel Stevens.

A selection of images from this series was awarded second place in Sports Feature Story in the 2015 New Jersey Press Association Awards.
