Nation’s Promotions will look to deliver a knockout night of boxing when they present ‘The Linden Showdown’ at the Mackenzie Sports Club (MSC) ground on Boxing Day. According to executive member of the Guyana Boxing Board of Control (GBBC), Eion Jardine, an eight-bout card of fistic fury comprising four amateur and four professional fights is envisioned to ignite the Mining Town.
The action will start with Kelsie George taking on Romeo Norville in a four-round super middleweight contest. Linden native, Sharon Ward will then step in the ring to face Mandessa Moses in a six-round catch weight fight.
New knockout sensation, Derrick ‘Lights Out’ Richmond will then square off against the experienced James Walcott for the vacant super middleweight title of Guyana. The card will be headlined by Linden’s own, Shondell Parks and Shelly ‘The Boom’ Gibson in a four-round heavy weight trilogy.
Parks and Gibson will both look to settle the score as both fighters have victories against each other.
The amateur pugilists competing on the card are yet to be named. One major sponsor onboard so far is Banks DIH Limited.
The first bell should sound around 19:00hrs.
Admission will be $1000.
