Keeve Allicock will be aiming to shine under the bright lights when he fights lightweight prospect, Imran ‘Magic’ Khan on the ‘Locked and Loaded’ card at the Giftland Mall on April 9.
The popular pugilist from Albouystown has been handed a golden opportunity to showcase his skills on the first of a series of cards at the Pattensen edifice.
The concept which is promoted by the Guyana Boxing Board of Control (GBBC), offers young boxing prospects the chance to perform in front of the flashing cameras and gain valuable experience before progressing onto even bigger televised events.
The southpaw, who is a third generation fighter from the Allicock clan will look to bolster his record (1-2-0) after being disqualified in his last outing in August after being ahead on the scorecards against debutant, Anthony Narine.
He has earned a huge fan base from his stellar amateur career with his exciting style of fighting.
Come April 9, he will look to put on a show for the fans like he last did in his debut professional bout when he stopped Terrence Adams in round two. However, Khan is no slouch with the gloves and will also be looking forward to getting back in the winner’s circle following back to back defeats at the hands of the local lightweight ruler, Quincy Gomes.
An all-out brawl should be on the cards.
Meanwhile, the knockout night of boxing will be headlined by the flashy Dexter ‘De Kid’ Marques.
The showman flyweight who has not fought since last February will look to shake off some ring rust since his promotional team has already lined up a Commonwealth title fight with their sights set on a world title crack later in the year.
Marques (15-2-0) will match gloves with Venezuelan, Luis Alberto Requena in a 10-round affair.
The co-feature will involve Edmond ‘Wonder Boy’ DeClou and Winston Pompey matching gloves in a six-round super middleweight encounter.
There will also be three amateur bouts. Admission for ringside is $2000 and $1000 for regular seating. Bell time is 19:00hrs.
