The Guyana Amateur Boxing Association (GABA) would start preparations for the Caribbean Schoolboys and Junior tournament when they host the U-16 &Juniors Boxing C/Ships this evening at Gymnasium which scheduled to commence at 18:30hrs in include 14 bouts.
The competition in this year’s Caribbean Schoolboys & Juniors’ tournament is expected to be fierce since the Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico who, along with Cuba, are considered the power houses in Latin America Amateur Boxing, have been invited to match gloves with their other Caribbean counterparts.
This will be the first time the French and Spanish Speaking Caribbean Islands have been invited to match skill with Boxers from the English speaking Caribbean and Guyana which is geographically a part of the South American continent.
President of the GABA, Steve Ninvalle informed that this evening’s championships would be very important for Guyana, the only English speaking Country in South America which is very much a part of the Caribbean through culture among other things.
This evening’s card should be keenly contested since bouts involving pugilists from Pocket Rocket gym from Linden, Essequibo Gym, Rose Hall Jammers from Berbice, Forgotten Youth Foundation, Young Achievers and Harpy Eagles will be in action.
The public is being encouraged to come and support the young Boxers. (Sean Devers)
