2017 Chicago GG Prelim


Danny Vaz da Costa defeated Raul Sanchez of Gary, IN, by unanimous decision in their 132-pound open division Chicago Golden Gloves prelim bout.

Mr. Sanchez, a Silver Gloves national champion, came out at a furious pace and landed a couple of big shots in the beginning of the fight. By the end of the first round, though, he started to pay the price for spending so much energy so soon, as Danny found his distance and landed a few good punches himself.

In the second round Danny took control of the fight by mixing body shots with blows to the head. Mr. Sanchez began to tire and to find himself against the ropes. He did not swing nearly as much as he did in round 1.


The last round was very one-sided. Danny applied pressure and gave Sanchez two eight-counts, the second of which was from an uppercut to the body and a left hook to the head, two clean shots in quick succession.

Danny showed good composure and great conditioning in this fight. He will next face Danny Gomez of Waukegan, IL, in the quarter-finals on March 18th.
