Win 9 bouts on night 3, while T&T victorious in 5
By Sean Devers
After three nights of fistic fury, two times team Champions Guyana moved closer to regaining their CBC boxing title heading into the final night of the 2018 fourth annual Boxing Championships at the Cliff Anderson Sports Hall which was scheduled for last night.
After Guyana had won in 2015 and 2016, Grenada with 18 Medals, captured the team title last year in St Lucia where Guyana’s four-man team captured three Golds and a Silver.
Bantamweight Keevin Allicock, Middleweight Desmond Amsterdam and Colin “Superman” Lewis captured Golds, while Joel “Stone” Williamson managed silver.
Trinidad and Tobago, with their largest contingent to the CBC which was first held here in 2015, won five of their nine bouts on Saturday when Guyana won nine of their 15 bouts on night three which ended in the wee hours of yesterday morning.
Another poor turn-out saw Amsterdam win in the most dominant manner in the last fight of the third night when Grenada’s Joshua Redhead quit in 2:16 of the first round of their middleweight match-up to register Guyana’s 18th win in this year’s Championships.
Amsterdam began aggressively hitting Redhead with crunching body digs as the Grenadian tried in vain to fight back.
A hard left to the body resulted in Redhead being given a standing 8 count, while more combinations to the ‘Kitchen’ caused the Referee to administer another 8 count and after a 1-2 to ribcage Redhead headed to his corning indicating he had had enough punishment for one night.
Guyana’s Sheakeal Damon destroyed T&T’s Junior Cornwall with a series of clinical combinations before their Novice Heavyweight clash was stopped in 1:18 in the second round, while St Lucian Lyndel Marcelin showed why he is one of the best welterweight Amateur Boxers in the Caribbean by defeating Phillippe Jean Errin of Guadeloupe when the entertaining contest was stopped in 54 seconds of the third round.
In another fight with plenty of punches, Alex Murray, the 26-year-old son of the late Boxing Champion Andrew Murray who was not short of vocal support from his fans, overcame T&T’s Nile Mohammed on points.
