The pair and Coach Terrence Poole would have had achieved the ultimate desired result of qualifying for the CAC and also medaling at this event. Pitted against top class opponents, Lewis and Allicock acquitted themselves well to come out with medals at the event.
Both fighters lost their semifinal matches in the Tijuana, Mexico hosted qualifiers. Superman Lewis lost with by a split decision, which according to many including head of the Guyana Boxing Association, Steve Ninvalle, Lewis should have won by a unanimous verdict against Eduardo Sanchez of Costa Rica.
Allicock on the other hand lost to Cuba’s Robeisy Ramirez who is also ranked number one in the world. Fighting as a Flyweight, Allicock showed his tremendous worth by tackling the Cuban Bantamweight Olympic champ and world number one. No easy feat as Allicock matched him pound for pound and punch for punch, which speaks volumes of the determination of this talented young fighter, who hails from the Albouystown area.
Both are now headed for the Commonwealth Games in Australia and this Mexico sojourn would have been excellent preparation for the pair. They would certainly be looking to better their medal haul in Australia and the CAC events. The boxers and Coach Return home this afternoon.
