The Guyana Olympic Association (GOA) has expressed its regret at the passing of Guyana’s first
World Champion, Andrew ‘Sixhead’ Lewis, who died following an accident on Monday, May 4, at the Diamond Diagnostic Centre, East Bank Demerara.
Below is the full text of the Olympic Associations message:
“The President and members of the Guyana Olympic Association (GOA) express their sincere condolences to the family, relatives and friends of Andrew ‘Sixhead’ Lewis and the boxing fraternity at large on his passing on Monday, May 4, 2015.
As an Organisation, we recognise his contribution to the sport of boxing. He will forever be remembered for his outstanding performance at the Central American & Caribbean (CAC) Games, held in Mexico in 1990, where he won a silver medal in the welterweight category.
He later became a professional boxer, known for his showmanship and power, and made Guyana proud when he beat James Page in 2001 to capture the WBA Welterweight Title. The Golden Arrowhead flew high again when he successfully defended this title against Larry Marks.
We mourn, with the rest of Guyana, his tragic and untimely death
May his soul rest in peace.”
