Chicago GG Quarterfinal 


Danny Vaz da Costa won his 2017 Chicago Golden Gloves quarterfinals bout by unanimous (5 – 0) decision last night. 

Danny and his 132-pound open division opponent, Danny Gomez, had fought before and Gomez had to try something different this time or he would most likely lose again. His adjustment was clear: throw more volume, less power. 

This suited Danny. Despite recovering from the flu and an ear infection, Danny was able to avoid or absorb Gomez’s punches, none of which were of any consequence, while landing a higher number of more significant blows. 


In this fight Danny displayed a confident, fluid style that included several good check-left hooks to the head and a few right-hands and jabs fired independently from his foot movement. On to the semifinals on March 25th.
