‘Lightening Struck Assassin’ goes after ‘The Sniper’ as Friday Night fights resume
Kwesi ‘Lightening Struck Assassin’ Jones’ sensational knockout of Cleveland Fraser had sent an ominous message to his detractors that he is not prepared to leave his fortunes in the hands of the judges. The feat, though commendable, turned out to be counterproductive as ever since, opponents have shied away from and he has since been starved from competition.
All this will now end when Jones dons gloves against Barbadian, Shawn ‘The Sniper’ Cox in a 10 rounds non-title catchweight scrap when the Guyana Fight Night boxing cards, under the patronage of the Guyana Boxing Board of Control (GBBC), resumes at the Cliff Anderson Sports Hall (CASH), Friday January 25 next.
Mark Austin will go after the local junior/middleweight title when he faces unbeaten pugilist, Gladwin Dorway over 12 rounds while Charlton Skeete will match gloves with Delon Allicock in a 4 rounds super/bantamweight fight. The night’s opener will witness Berbician, Richard Williamson opposing Orlan Rogers in a 6 rounds super/bantamweight affair.
The boxers are scheduled to convene this afternoon at the Avenue of the Republic offices of Abdool and Abdools Insurance Brokers for the contract signing ceremony. The admission price is $1,000 while children will be allowed in for $500.
