Border City Boxers on a mission plus the weekend that was in Windsor-Essex

Rosalind Canty and Jayden Trudell left the Rose City Sunday for the national boxing championships being held in Montreal starting Tuesday December 5th. Trudell enters the ring as Ontario champ in a new division (71K). "I feel good. I feel confident." said the 19-year old.

The draw takes place Wednesday so there's no preparing for one opponent. It helps Trudell is familiar with some of the fighters in his division, including Windsor's Hunter Lee who is the Quebec champion. "There really is no preparing other than, you know, I know the few guys in it who some I've beat. There's that but just gotta wait for the draw and figure it out then just like everybody else does."


Canty is back at nationals for a second straight year looking to avenge last year's loss. She only had seven fights under her belt heading into the championships in 2022. She has fought 29 times this year. "Definitely more experienced and I'm more eager to prove myself because of what happened last year."


The winners will have an opportunity to qualify for the Olympic Games next summer in Paris, France.

The Spits then took part in the Windsor Santa Claus parade Saturday night to cheers of Go Spits Go. Interim head coach Casey Torres is looking forward to his first full week of practice with the team before they host the Barrie Colts on Thursday.

The Windsor Clippers were also at the parade handing out to candy and migling with the crowd. One fan didn't want candy and was asking for the goalie stick instead.
