North Carolina’s best amateur boxers will gather in Charlotte next month.

More than 140 pugilists will compete in the North Carolina Golden Gloves tournament March 7-8 at Sugaw Creek Recreation Center. Winners in the Open Division, or most experienced amateurs, will advance to the regional tournament in Knoxville, Tenn., in April.
