Underwood beats defending champion at 132 pounds

Updated: July 17, 2010, 22:30

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.(AP) Queen Underwood has beaten defending champion Patricia Manuel to claim the 132-pound title at the USA boxing national championships.

Marlen Esparza won at 112 pounds for her fifth national title and Tiffanie Hearn captured the 165-pound division Saturday night.

These are the three women's weight classes that will be contested at the 2012 London Olympics. The International Olympic Committee added women's boxing to the program last summer but with an abbreviated field.

The jostling will soon begin as boxers move up and down the weight classes as the Olympics draw closer.

In the matinee program, Lauren Fisher halted Sacred Downing's string of six straight national titles, winning at 119 pounds with a flurry of late punches.
