Jul 05, 2013 Sports Comments Off on 28th Edition of Guyana Fight Night boxes off tonight…Fireworks to replace last week’s thunderstorm
If it rains the 28th Edition of Guyana Fight Night (GFN) action will not suffer a similar fate as the Uitvlugt mishap last week so come rain or high water, the event will be staged at the Cliff Anderson Sports Hall (CASH). However, while the venue has changed, the moods of the various principals remain intact and fans could expect several slugfests from the first bell at around 20:00hrs.
There is really no guarantee when fans will leave the venue; it could be one hour later or it could be several, depending on whether the vitriol that spewed out of the mouths of the boxers is transferred into action.
Green goes up against debutant Laured Stewart and while the former is the more experienced professionally, the later may still have an inclination to throw punches in bunches. Thus, a slugfest is in store.
The Revlon Lake/Dexter Gonsalves Jr./Lightweight title clash is expected to produce fireworks and both fighters predicting a win. Gonsalves oozes confidence saying that he has been Lake’s trainer at one time and the Barbados based Guyanese is still to impress him. He said that tonight he will teach his ‘student’ a valuable lesson he will not forget.
Lake looked super fit when he worked out at the Andrew Lewis Gym Wednesday afternoon last. He packs a terrific wallop and Gonsalves should be warned that he is up against a tough cookie. Whichever way this one goes, a thrilling fight is in store.
The Romeo Norville/Eversley Brown middleweight clash is expected to produce fireworks. Norville was a good amateur boxer but whether he has the wherewithal to make a successful transition to the professional ranks and whether he could outbox or outfox Eversley will be known tonight.
Otherwise, George will come up against veteran, Troy Lewis, in a 4 rounds middleweight encounter and he has been promised a bout with Andrew ‘Sixhead’ Lewis if he wins. Troy Lewis always produces action packed encounters and George will have to dig deep if he is to clinch the prestigious ‘Sixhead’ Lewis bout.
Will he rise to the occasion? Fans will just have to be there to see the action unfold. Leon Moore is back after a lengthy hiatus and he tackles Errol Trotman, also over 6 rounds. The latter boxer has proclaimed that he has a few surprises up his sleeve. The trouble is he is fighting shirtless. Fans will want to see that trick.
There are also 4 amateur bouts; Light/Heavyweight Desmond Amsterdam (GDF) will tackle Republican, Colin Martin while Kelon King (FYF) goes head to head with Anandram Dharamraj, also of the Republican Boxing Gym (Rep), in a Jr./Welterweight encounter.
Another Republican representative, Kevin Rodney will clash with Trevon King in a middleweight fight while Police representative, Imran Khan opposes Stephon Gouveia of the Harpy Eagles Boxing Gym (HEBG).
Maybe the weather forecast might predict rain but fans need not worry; the card is at the Cliff Anderson Sports Hall. However, fans ought not to ignore the impending storm and fireworks promised by the boxers; they may want to come prepared for any eventuality. The admission fee remains at $1,500 and GBBC officials have assured that those patron that were affected by the postponement may be able to gain entry by presenting the stubs of tickets purchased that night. Bell time is 20:00hrs.
