Sakima Mullings K.O.’s Revlon Lake

Guyana’s Revlon Lake suffered a fourth round knockout at the hands of Jamaica’s Sakima Mullings in the first fight of this season’s Wray & Nephew Contender Series on Wednesday night.

In front of the pro Jamaican crowd at the Chinese Benevolent Centre on Hope Road in Kingston, Mullings moved one step closer to pocketing the $J2M purse that is up for grabs in the welterweight tournament.

The 16 boxers (eight from Jamaica and eight from Guyana, Trinidad and Barbados) are competing for a share of J$3 million in prize money, with the winner of the Wray & Nephew Contender walking away with J$2M.
