Hardy threatens to give Eastman the ‘chin checker’
By Emmerson Campbell
“Eastman is not a guy everybody can take out, he has experience and is very crafty, but I have something special that not everybody has, the chin checker.”
This was the proclamation of undefeated Caribbean Boxing Federation (CABOFE) welterweight champion Simeon ‘Candy Man’ Hardy yesterday during an interview with Stabroek Sport at his training base, the Forgotten Youth Foundation (FYF) Gym.
Hardy will match gloves with former European middleweight champion Howard ‘Battersea Bomber’ Eastman in a 10-round junior middleweight headline bout on the 23rd edition of the Guyana Fight Night Pro Am card at the Cliff Anderson Sports Hall this Friday night.
