Bantamweight boxers, Delon Allicock of the Forgotten Youth Foundation (FYF) and Benjamin Henry of the North West Boxing Gym will match skills when the Guyana Boxing Board of Control stages the June edition of the ProAm Boxing cards on Friday 24.
Former amateur pugilist and current coach of the national team, Terrence Poole released the names of the boxers participating on the card and promised that each bout will be a chockfull of excitement. Henry is relatively new to the sport but has demonstrated great skill that saw him winning the novices boxing championships. Allicock also possesses a high degree of skill and should pose some problems for the classy Henry.
This bout should be exciting since both pugilists have shown remarkable ability and would both be out to impress the selectors of the Guyana Amateur Boxing Association (GABA) to clinch a place on the team for the London Olympics next year.
Otherwise, three more bouts will add to the excitement of the card. In the first, flyweights Richard Williamson of the Pocket Rocket Boxing Gym (PRBG) will box against Imran Khan of the Harpy Eagles Boxing Gym (HEBG), while in the jnr/welterweight division, Marvin Adgeda (FYF) tackles Delroy Nero (Rep). The final amateur fight pits the skills of Lightweights, Stephon Gouveia and Andrew Lowenfield.
The action gets underway at 08:00hrs and fans could expect a live broadcast on National Communication Network (NCN). Admission remains at $1,000 and those in possession of special passes would be able to gain entry after presenting those passes. The ProAm affair is a Guyana Boxing Board of Control (GBBC) presentation in collaboration with the Ministry of Culture Youth and Sports, the GABA and NCN.
