GRAND RAPIDS -- Now that local organizers did such an admirable job hosting the 81st
National Golden Gloves, plenty of people wonder when it will return. It is a phenomenom
familiar to Ray Rodgers, president of Golden Gloves Association of America. "I was literally
taking the rings down on Saturday night after we concluded in 2005," in Little Rock, Ark.,
Rodgers said, "and some officials from the city approached me and asked, 'When can we
do this again?'"
