The two-day Guyana Boxing Association (GBA) Schoolboys and Juniors Boxing Championships at the Andrew ‘Six Heads’ Lewis in Albouystown began late yesterday with one of 13 scheduled bouts being cancelled. But this did not deter the large and raucous turn out from witnessing an entertaining Boxing Card and hearing an informative interactive talk on Domestic Abuse by Deidre Ifill, Prevention, Programme & Education Officer Ministry of Social Protection.
Ifill told the youngsters and their Coaches that physical, verbal and emotional abuse are some of the most prevalent forms of abuse in the Guyana and encouraged those who know of their friends being abused to call them on 227-0779.
In the Ring, Harpy Eagles’ Enoch Munroe, only boxing to twice yesterday, beat Stephon McDonald of Forgotten Youths Foundation in 95-99lbs division in the first fight and then returned to get the better of Dwayne Baptiste in the day’s final bout to book his place in today’s final.
