On Thursday at the Ronald Wilson memorial Boxing Tournament in Barbados, Guyanese boxers got off to a flying start and are on course for top medals when the event concludes this weekend.
Flyweight Richard Williamson pounded his way to a point’s victory over Ashad Fabien of Trinidad and was down to meet Ricardo Blackman of Barbados last night as he looks to move into the championship round tonight.
Laured Stewart (welterweight) dished out a beating on Anthony Carter of Aruba, forcing the Referee to Stop the Contest (RSC) in the first round. So vicious was the onslaught the official had no option than to ensure the Aruban fighter did not sustain any serious injury.
Stewart was down to come up against Ron Bastian of St Lucia as he continued his march to championship glory.
Ron Smith was also in a no nonsense mood as he also unfurled a two fisted attack to ensure the third person in the ring came into play. The Referee saw enough and saved Ronald Als of Barbados from further punishment in the second round. Yesterday Smith was up against Lavel Nurse of Trinidad.
Also in action yesterday were Delon Charles against Raenal Walters of St Maarten and female junior Renitna David against Jamel Billingy of Trinidad. The magician, Imran ‘Magic’ Khan, will fight today against Travis Maynard of St. Lucia for the Bantamweight title. Former President, Bharrat Jagdeo had committed $2M to ensuring the team of boxers and officials travel to the event during his final working days in office. Described as the ‘Best corner man’ President Jagdeo came in to assist when the private sector fell short at a crucial point to ensure Guyana’s participation.
Guyana Amateur Boxing Association president, Steve Ninvalle, had called on his team to be good ambassadors and return home with top medals. He is a very proud and happy person as his team look set to finish among the medals.
