Waianae's Guillermo stopped short at trials

Waianae's Samson Guillermo lost his second match at the Olympic trials for boxing yesterday, ending his run at the double-elimination tournament without winning a match.

The Northern Michigan scholarship boxer said a long layoff between fights may have done him in.

"Not enough conditioning," Guillermo said. "I had a little bit of rust, but mostly it was not enough conditioning. It's hard to go to school and train for almost a year without a fight."

Guillermo said he plans to continue fighting as an amateur.
