Maybe out of action for months
He recently competed in the AMBC Olympic Boxing Qualifier in Buenos Aires, Argentina and has
represented Guyana at a number of international and regional tournaments, but Dennis Thomas will be out of the sport for a few months as a result of a motor vehicle accident on Camp Street yesterday.
Information reaching Kaieteur Sport indicated that Thomas, who is a policeman, was the pillion rider on a motorcycle when it came into contact with a motorcar and he received an injury to his foot. While details of the actual accident and extent of his injuries were sketchy, it was disclosed that he received a deep gash to his heel which required a number of stitches and will certainly put him out of the sport from several months.
Guyana Boxing Association (GBA) President Steve Ninvalle confirmed the incident occurred and said he was saddened at this development, wishing Thomas a speedy recovery. Ninvalle said he spoke to Thomas who told him about the extent of his injuries and said he will be out for a bit.
Thomas and Desmond Amsterdam failed to advance to represent Guyana at the Rio Olympics after failing in their quest to qualify for the games at the qualifier in Argentina just a few weeks ago. They were hopeful of another attempt to qualify but yesterday’s unfortunate accident would definitely rule the talented Thomas out.
