The Cranbrook Eagles Boxing Club is back from the Kainai Gloves Boxing Show with a handful of trophies.

The Kainai Gloves Boxing Show was hosted last weekend at the Kainai Blood Reserve (outside Cardston, Alta.).

A total of three Cranbrook boxers stepped into the rink, with two making their boxing debuts.

Paul Carson, 28, returned to the ring for the first time in 10 years, taking on Chris L’hirondelle from Edmonton.

Meanwhile, Ty Kolbeck took on Bryson Reis (Lethbridge) and Carter Bannink fought against Whisper White Man (Blood Reserve).

Kolbeck and Bannink, junior members of the Eagles club, are both 11 years old and made their official boxing debuts over the weekend.

All three boxers received trophies for their efforts.

Next action sees the Cranbrook Eagles Boxing Club travel south of the border to Hamilton, Mont., March 14.

Hamilton is approximately 490 kilometres south of Cranbrook.
