The Caribbean Schoolboys and Juniors boxing tournament punches off in two days at the National Gymnasium on Mandela Avenue with three days of fistic action featuring fighters from Trinidad and Tobago, St. Lucia, Grenada and Jamaica going head to head with the budding local pugilists.
To this end, Trophy Stall of Bourda Market has continued their long-serving support of the Guyana Boxing Association (GBA) organised tournament, offering support in the kind of medals which will be awarded to the respective top performers.
Yesterday, at the entity’s location at Bourda Market, Proprietor Ramesh Sunich made the presentation to GBA’s Technical Director Terrence Poole. Poole expressed gratitude for the support by Trophy Stall, while Sunich gave his best wishes for the successful hosting of the event and underlined the importance of supporting the event since it targets and nurtures the nursery of boxing across the Caribbean.
