Two Surinamese boxers are set to appear on the Guyana Boxing Association (GBA) card at the Andrew ‘Six Head’ Lewis Gym on Saturday starting at 3:00pm.
The event is expected to see 12 bouts being staged and some of the top local talent will be on show.
GBA President Steve Ninvalle had previously indicated an intent in having boxing a part of the Inter Guiana Games and this event will serve as a pre-cursor for the IGG competition. Following this initial experiment and deliberations among GBA executives, recommendations will be made to the National Sports Commission and Ministry of Sport to have the sport included in the IGG with the consent of the sister participating countries.
Ninvalle informed that they will seek to have fighters from French Guiana also come for similar exchange programmes as the Surinamese. Whether or not boxing is included in the IGG, the GBA head plans to work with his counterparts in the two territories, Suriname and French Guiana, to have boxers participate in Goodwill exchanges around the same time as the games are held. He noted that this sort of interaction is good for the development of the younger boxers and the exposure will pay dividends.
Local boxers representing Essequibo, Harpy Eagles, Tiger Eye, Forgotten Youth Foundation and Pocket Rocket gyms will also be on show in Saturday’s event.
The international segment of the card will see Suriname’s Samuel Green facing Tyron Lashley of Guyana in a four rounder and Seta Pinas (Suriname) battles Dwon Thomason (Guyana) in a female encounter.
Among some of the local boxers on show are Quancy Wright, Leon Moore, Isaiah Moore, Shaquille Wright, Jamal Eastman, Christopher Moore, Junior Henry, Shaka Moore, Travis Hubbard and Joel Williamson.
