The 29-year-old Featherweight has 46 wins in his amateur career and was very grateful for the support and has pledged to do all that he could to win his first fight as a professional boxer. He is being Coached from 17:00 to 19:00hrs daily at the Agricola Gym by former Guyanese World rated boxer, Clive Atwell and the pair aims to pull out all the stops to secure the win.
”My aim is to use all of my resources and skills to provide the environment necessary for a fighter to shine on a level that they deserve and I am grateful to my friend, Mr. Aaron, for lending support and pledging to support me and my future charges” said Atwell, who won a bronze medal at 2007 Pan American Games as a Bantamweight before turning Pro in 2010.
The 29-year-old Atwell, one of two co-promoters of this card, said Charles is a hard worker and if given the right opportunities should have a successful Professional Career.
