As the day of reckoning draws closer, the principals of Mark Thom Promotions
finalized the deal for ‘Rose Hall Town Showdown,’ a three fight professional card at the Rose Hall Community Centre Ground on Saturday December 13 with several amateur bouts to sweeten the deal.
Mr. Thom was at the Avenue of the Republic office of Abdool and Abdools Insurance Brokers yesterday morning for the contract signing ceremony and he was accompanied by his Promotions Manager, Sabrina Thom. Those that signed contracts yesterday included Kishawn Simon and Mark Murray, battling over 6 rounds in a jnr/welterweight bout while Richard Williamson and Dillon Allicock also affixed their signatures for their bout, 12 rounds super/bantamweight title affair.
Another Berbician, local middleweight champion, Dereck Richmond, will step up one division to square off with Romeo Norville over 6 rounds in a super/middleweight fight, the second time the two will clash. Both of these pugilists also conformed to the contract signing rituals and said they are ready to throw down the gauntlet. Richmond is confident that he could repeat his performance when he stopped Norville last year. Several amateur fighters will also make up the card and the organizers are awaiting those names from their counterparts of the Guyana Boxing Association (GBA).
Meanwhile, Mr. Thom said that he is still speaking with members of the corporate community to assist in offsetting the expenses of the card. He said that it is a costly endeavour yet he persists because he recognizes the positive spin off for pugilists out of the Ancient County as well as the patrons.
The promoter said that he has procured tangible assistance from Castle Hotel of Chapel Street, New Amsterdam and he is very grateful to the proprietors. The producer of Maximum Sports, Max Massiah, has also pitched in and has committed to free advertisements on his show, aired on Fridays at 21:30hrs. Admission to the venue is $2000 for the VIP section while general admission is $1000.
