William Johnson of Washington, D.C., won the 112-pound championship at the National Golden Gloves tournament Saturday night. He was the only Washington fighter to reach the final round.
Johnson used a decided reach advantage to pile up points. He gained the final after scoring a decision over Julio Rodriquex of Hawaii earlier in the day.
Washington's only other fighter in the semifinals, Derrick Holmer, lost a decision to two-time defending champion Bernard Taylor in the 125-pound division.
Louisville's Gregory Page scored a second-round technical knockout over William Hosea of Springfield, Ill., to win the heavyweight title.
Page, a runner-up last year to James Clark, wasted little time as he stalked Hosea through the first round and stunned him with a combination midway through the second round. The referee stepped in to stop the fight as Hosea retreated into a corner.
Las Vegas captured the team title with 23 points, edging Fort Worth, Tex., which had 22. Cleveland was next with 19, followed by defending champion Pennsylvania and Jackson, Tenn., with 18 points each and Detroit and Washington with 17.
Jeffrey Stoudemire of Cleveland rallied in the third round to score a close decision over Ricky Bear of Jackson for the 147-pound title.
Beard, whose younger brother, Jackie, earlier won the 119-pound title, scored well in the opening two rounds by getting inside on the taller Stoudemire. But Stoudemire opened the decisive third round by nailing Beard with a right-hand shot and a left hook.
