Amateur heavyweight Jesse West, the Utah and Rocky Mountain Golden Gloves champion, moved into the quarterfinals of the national Golden Gloves tournament in Salt Lake City with a third round KO over California's Jose Medrano On Wednesday.

West, who trains at Foley's gym in Ogden, staggered Medrano with a left jab before putting his opponent face first on the canvas with a flurry of punches, punctuated with a hard right hand. He's scheduled to fight Thursday night in the 201 pound-plus division at the Salt Palace.
