No less than 11 Boxing Canada representatives are in action during the first global Olympic Qualifying tournament, which takes place from March 3 to 11 in Busto Arsizio, Italy. However, head coach Vincent Auclair's team will have a heavy task, since

three maple leaf pugilists were in action on Sunday. Flyweight (51 kg) Justin Parina started the tournament on the right foot with a victory over Keymberth Solorzano of Venezuela, while Junior Petanqui (71 kg) followed on the victorious path against Martin Skogheim of Norway.
