For the second year in a row, Garrison Phillips showcased his exceptional boxing skills as he earned a spot in the Championship rounds of the highly anticipated Houston Golden Gloves tournament. This year, after a very close split-decision loss in 2023, Phillips’ hand was raised as the Champion for 2024 in the 165 lbs novice division.

The thrilling showdown took place on Sunday, March 3rd, 2024 at the CDM Boxing Arena in Houston, Texas. Representing Main Street Boxing & Muay Thai, Phillips displayed unwavering determination and skill throughout the tournament, proving himself to be a rising contender in the boxing community.

At only 19 years old, Phillips has already made significant strides in his boxing career since he first started training at the age of 14. With a record of 5-2, he continues to challenge himself and push the boundaries of his abilities. His steadfast commitment to the sport has been evident in his relentless pursuit of excellence.

When asked about his win, Phillips stated, “Stay humble in victory and in defeat. Although I won, I feel like there’s a lot of things I have to work on to reach my goals, a lot of errors, and things I need to get fixed in order to get sharper.” This mindset reflects his dedication to continuous improvement and his persistent quest to become a more decorated amateur boxer.

Looking ahead, Phillips has set his sights on achieving even greater heights in the next two years. His goal is to participate in over 20 fights as an amateur before turning professional at the age of 21.
