Next Saturday at the Cliff Anderson Sports Hall, boxing fans can look forward to more than just 38 rounds of fistic fury.
Major entities, Fly Jamaica, Kings Jewellery World and Banks DIH Limited have added door prizes for lucky patrons attending the five-fight ‘Caribbean Collision’ card.
The prizes include tickets to overseas destinations, jewellery and the world’s most consumed alcoholic beverage.
According to Wesley Tucker, Senior Marketing Officer of Fly Jamaica, the airline will be giving away two tickets to any of its three destinations: Toronto, New York and Jamaica.
The other door prizes include a gold cricket band from King’s and two cases of GT Beer from Banks.
It was also announced yesterday that Guyoil and GTM are also onboard the event after presenting undisclosed amounts of cash to the top brass of the Guyana Boxing Board of Control.
‘Caribbean Collision’ will be headlined by Jamaican, Sakima Mullings and former world-rater and multiple division champion, Clive ‘The Punisher’ Atwell for the WBC CABOFE light welterweight title.
