Default brothers who fought EACH OTHER for a Golden Gloves championship?

Be interested ta see who knows this?

Forget brothers that fought, 'n won titles, in the GG's in different weight classes to avoid fighting each other. ONLY interested in brothers who fought each other.

I have to check this out, But:

Brothers Vincent and Edwin "Chu Chu" Malave made a bit of history when they were declared 126-pound open co-champions. Brothers had won championships in the same year, but never had they reached the finals in the same division. Golden Gloves and AAU officials met and decided that "in the interest of good sportsmanship and the amateur code" there would be co-champions. That's exactly how announcer Matt Cusack explained it to the crowd as the brothers were introduced and brought to the center of the ring.

The Malave brothers started something of a mini-trend. Edwin and Adolfo Viruet also won championships that evening, with Edwin defeating Vincent Lanza to win the 118-pound sub-novice championship and Adolfo winning the 126-pound sub-novice title with a decision over Jose Saldana. Having seen how the Malave situation was handled, they both entered as 126-pound open contenders in 1969, fought to the finals and were declared co-champions.

How about this.........
New York Golden Gloves

Johnny Davis (175 lb. Open Champ, 1975 and 1976)
Eddie Davis (not sure if Eddie was declared co-Champion in 1975 with Johnny)
Willie Stallings (relative of Johnny and Eddie)

In the 1976, 175 lb. finals Johnny Davis and Willie Stallings were declared co-Champions.

Is it my understanding then that no brothers have fought for Golden Glove championships anywhere?
