Chicago GG Semifinal

Noel Limon was disqualified in his 2017 Chicago Golden Gloves semifinal bout against Danny Vaz da Costa. 

Although he is an excellent boxer, Mr. Limon fought dirty and had 3 points taken off by the referee for holding. This unfortunately ended the bout with a minute left in round 3. 


It was not Danny’s best performance, but he would have won the fight had it come to a decision. Let me explain. 

Limon won the first round with a score of 10 – 9. He would have won the second round by the same score, but he had a point taken off, so it was a 9 – 9 round. 

Danny was winning the third round, as he started timing Limon’s punches and landing some good overhand rights. After Limon had a second point taken off, the score would have been 8 – 10. So even without Limon’s third infraction, which in fact automatically disqualified him, the final score would have been 27 – 28 in Danny’s favor. 


Danny will fight 2016 champion, Marcos Martinez, in the 132-pound open division final of the Chicago Golden Gloves on April 6th.
