Ever since Derick Richmond had dealt him a wicked left hook that left him with a broken jaw, World Boxing
Council Caribbean Boxing Federation (CABOFE) champion, Edmond DeClou had taken a self imposed sabbatical from the square jungle while engaged in introspection. He is now sufficiently recovered and will square off against Gladwin Dorway in a card promoted by the Guyana Boxing Board of Control (GBBC), scheduled for the Cliff Anderson Sports Hall (CASH) on Saturday December 6.
Dubbed ‘The Big Brawl’ the card also features top amateur boxer, Keeve Allicock making his professional debut against David Thomas in a 4 rounds lightweight clash while there will be a female heavyweight clash between Shelly ‘The Boom’ Gibson and another debutant, Simone Hoyte.
Another attractive fight is the catchweight 6 rounder between Quincy ‘Destroyer’ Gomes and Dexter ‘The Kid” Marques. Jones has earned the right to challenge Marques after he stepped up to the plate as a substitute at short notice and soundly whipped his more seasoned opponent, Richard Williamson, into submission to take a lopsided unanimous verdict. This should be a defining fight for him and could possible determine his advancement or otherwise. The night’s opening bout will see another debutant, Barbadian, Jermain Eswick, trading punches with veteran fighter, Eversley Brown, in a 4 rounds middleweight scrap.
Meanwhile, one week later, boxing buffs in Berbice will also enjoy some fistic action when Mark Thom Promotions presents the ‘Rose Hall Town Showdown’ at the Rose Hall Community Centre Ground Saturday December 13.
This card will consist of three professional and several amateur bouts and the promoter assures fans of a night of keen fistic action. The main attraction will be the 12 rounds fight between Berbician, Richard Williamson and his Georgetown counterpart, Dillon Allicock for the vacant local super/bantamweight title while another Berbician, local middleweight champion, Derek Richmond, will step up one division to square off with Romeo Norville over 6 rounds in a super/middleweight affair.
The former pugilist has drawn first blood when the two squared off at the CASH last year and would be out to prove that it was no fluke while the latter boxer is eager to reverse his fortunes and is currently engaged in intense training in the Ancient County.
Berbician, Kishawn Simon, also on the redemption trail after losing his last bout to veteran, Cassius Matthews, is bent on winning his bout when he faces Mark Murray in a 6 rounds jnr/welterweight affair. A bright prospect when he entered the professional ranks, Simon has suffered a surprise loss to Patrick Boston and the Murray fight is regarded as a stepping stone to bigger things and might just be the tonic needed to boost his flagging fortunes and revive his career.
The promoters have also included several amateur bouts on the card but while they have hinted at several action-packed bouts, they have not yet released the names of those pugilists. Eon Jardine is the matchmaker and he intimated that the boxers would be engaged in the contract signing rituals today at the Avenue of the Republic office of Abdool and Abdools Insurance Brokers at 13:00hrs.
