Wadena's Justin Isaacson won a three-rounder but teammate Leon Ulbricht ran into a hard punch at the Fergus Falls Boxing Club's Golden Gloves card Saturday in Fergus Falls.

Isaacson met Detroit Lakes' Cole LaRockue in a super heavyweight bout and used his size and reach to out-box LaRockue.

"It was a decent fight," said Wadena boxing coach Bob Tubandt. "I just wanted him to box."

Isaacson will be in action against larger boxers in the upcoming Region IV Tournament April 3-4 in Wadena.

"When you go up against those 230-240 pound guys you have to fight smart," Tubandt said.

Ulbricht, a German foreign exchange student and a first-year boxer, was sent to the canvas by Fergus Falls' Brandon Wheeler in the opening round of their 150-pound fight. Referee Chris Holt parted the two fighters and gave Ulbricht a count before stopping the fight.

"Ulbricht just ran into a hard punch," Tubandt said.
