GBA Novices c/ships commences next week

Fresh off hosting two successful international championships, the Guyana Boxing Association (GBA) will now turn its attention to the local boxing scene.

According to Technical Director of the Association, Terrence Poole, the annual Andrew ‘Sixhead’ Lewis National Novices Championships will box off next week at the National Gymnasium.

The midweek three-day fixture is scheduled to start on June 27 at 19:00hrs nightly.

Said Poole “In excess of 80 fighters competing from over 10 gyms will be participating in this championship.”

Poole added “All the gyms across the country will be competing inclusive of the Wakenaam Boxing Gym which had its first taste of competition last month”

Defending champion, the Guyana Defense Force (GDF) will be hard pressed to retain the gym title from the Republican Gym which has assembled a strong squad to enter the squared circle.

The Novices Championship comes on the heels of the ‘Nuff Cuff’ International which was held on February 19 and the Caribbean School Boys and Juniors Tournament staged in mid May.
