Tyriece Stokes, Kariym Patterson, Dominique Crowder, Coach Mitch, Omar Crowder
Recently two local amateur boxers from Poughkeepsie’s APJ Boxing Club, brought home championship belts from the Pure Breed Boxer Tournament finale in Bronx, New York.

Hard work, dedication and the support and guidance of Coach Mitch and Trainer Kariym Patterson, lead APJ Boxing Club to not one, but two, championship belts.  At the end of the three-weekend long boxing tournament, 20 year old Dominique Crowder battled two opponents, winning the championship belt for the 123 pound weight class.  Twenty-three year old Tyriece Stokes defeated three other boxers, taking the championship belt for the 178 pound weight class.

APJ Boxing Club, Inc, located at 2 Catherine Street in Poughkeepsie, New York, opened their doors in 2011.  Equipped with a full size boxing ring, a variety of punching bags and a weight area, APJ Boxing gym provides a great place for anyone interested in the art of boxing.
