Peralta boxer Alexa Garrobo lost her match at the Regional Golden Gloves boxing championship July 23 in Aurora, Colo.
According to her coach, Anthony Rosales, Garrobo lost by decision in a very close fight against former Team USA Olympic alternate Lupe Gutierrez of Sacramento, Calif.
Rosales said the match was the first time on a “big stage” for Garrobo. Rosales said Garrrobo felt she could have done better and was very disappointed.
