USA Boxing announced Tuesday that it has found its temporary home in the Spokane area.
Northern Quest Resort & Casino will play host to the USA National Boxing Championships through 2016. Northern Quest partnered with the Spokane Sports Commission, the Hub Sports Center and USA Boxing to make the deal possible.
“We're absolutely thrilled that USA Boxing selected our resort to host the National Championships for the next four years,” Phil Haugen, Northern Quest GM, said in a news release. “Spokane continues to make a name for itself as the successful host of a variety of world-class sporting events. The U.S. Olympic Team Trials for Women's Boxing held here last year in February were well received by our community and well attended by local regional and national audiences. We value our partnership with USA Boxing and look forward to bringing the nation's most talented female and male boxers back to Spokane.”
