Boxing

Lonnie Smith's quest for the Potomac Valley Association Golden Gloves super-heavyweight title came to an end Saturday night at the Hillcrest Heights Boys Club in Southern Maryland.

Smith, 21, out of the Laurel Boys and Girls Club, lost a unanimous decision to Levon Seegers, out of Ray Leonard's Boxing Facility in Palmer Park.

After Seegers caught Smith (48-8) with a hard body shot early, the fighters traded blows the rest of the way. Smith had defeated Seegers in two previous bouts.

"It's a learning experience," said Smith's trainer, Tom Langley. "Levon just did a good job."

Another Laurel fighter had better results.

Eric Hunt, fighting in the 165-pound Senior Novice class, won matches on Friday and Saturday to claim his first Golden Gloves crown.

Hunt (4-1), defeated Robert Marshall, also from Leonard's facility in Palmer Park, in a unanimous decision.
