The Guyana Boxing Association (GBA) has shortlisted 40 boxers to go into training for possible selection to
represent Guyana at the region’s first International Schoolboys and Juniors tournament scheduled for Guyana on April 29 and 30.
Jamaica, Trinidad and Tobago and St. Lucia are expected to participate in the event and the competition is anticipated to be keen among the youngsters.
Among the lot selected by the GBA are three females who would be looking to make their mark at this level. They are: Akea Lamazone, Rianna Rogers and Rondessa Bagot, who all come from the Pocket Rocket Boxing Gym of Linden.
Adequately represented are the Forgotten Youth Foundation Gym in Albouystown (11 members) and the Essequibo Gym, run by Clifton Moore (10 fighters).
