May 26, 2009 Sports Comments Off on Georgetown boxers invade Linden for HEP slugfest
Lindeners disappointed by the aborted fight between Leon ‘Hurry Up’ Moore and Mark Murray early last month would now have their desires met following the announcement that Moore, who had suffered an injury during preparations, has received the requisite permission from his doctor to engage in combat.
The 8 rounder is now scheduled for this Saturday, May 30, at the McKenzie Sports Complex Ground, Linden. Head of Holland’s’ Entertainment Promotions (HEP), Carwyn Holland made this disclosure in a telephone interview with this newspaper yesterday morning. He said that fans can expect the action packed encounters promised earlier since the respective fighters had not abandoned training activities.
Apart from the Moore/Murray showdown, fans would be treated to a highly anticipated slugfest between Debbie Tyson and Sharon Warde over 6 rounds. Tyson started her career April 25 last on a highly successful note, stopping Avlon Scotland in the first round.
Since then she has been mouthing off, proclaiming to be the ‘baddest’ local female around. Warde, on the other hand, is no slouch and had beaten up quite a few hopefuls in the sport. Her most recent victory was at the expense of Veronica Blackman, who had earlier suffered a controversial loss to Pamela London. Furthermore, Warde would also be at a hometown advantage which makes the fight a little dicey especially since Tyson has said that she is not intimidated.
Cassius Matthews and Cecil Smith square off over 6 rounds in another Linden/Georgetown affair. As amateurs, the two had been members of the Junior Carifta national team to Jamaica and had engaged in preparatory sparring sessions. Matthews said that during these sessions he had taught the younger Smith a thing or two in the finer art of the sport. Smith had retorted that he was fighting as a featherweight while Matthews fought as a lightweight. “We are now on even grounds and this time I intend to leave the ring victorious,” Smith promised.
The HEP has been noted for its unconventional approach to the promotion business. The last card promoted by this group in the mining town pitted the skills of ‘Boney’ and ‘Fathead,’ to settle an old grouse. The two had put up a masterful performance and those on hand to witness it were truly entertained.
This time around another grudge match between ‘Big Bad’ Shawn Harris of Georgetown and Fahaad ‘The Linden Giant’ Alli promises as much entertainment. Both fighters would be tipping the scales at more that 300 pounds in what the promoter has classified as a super, super heavyweight clash.
The bout is scheduled for three rounds but from the look of things, the first person to get in the first haymaker could very well abbreviate the match.
Admission price has been set at $500 before the match. Those electing to pay at the gate would be required to pay $300 more. Fight time is 20:00hrs sharp.
Among the sponsors assisting in the staging of this card are: Lake’s Electronics, Lifetime Gift Shop, Banks DIH, GT&T, Silvie’s General Store, National Pride, Kashif and Shanghai Organisation, Riverview Hotel, Nissota Auto Spares and White Castle Fish Shop.
