Garrobo trains for regional Golden Gloves boxing match.

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.

The 20-year-old Los Lunas High School graduate is a two-time New Mexico Golden Gloves champion, who is expected to resume training right away.
