Allicock wins, Moore loses at Commonwealth Youth Games

Guyana’s two boxers competing at the ongoing Commonwealth Youth Games in the Bahamas suffered mixed fortunes yesterday in the ring.

While Keevin Allicock punched his way to clinch a semifinal berth in the 52 kg division, his countryman Christopher Moore lost a five-nil decision to his English opponent, Charles Frankham in their 56kg contest.

Allicock who is at least assured of a bronze medal, will come up against Canadian, Jordan Mathieu today at 14:00hrs in their semifinal bout. The gold-medal chasing Allicock earned a semifinal spot after brushing aside quarterfinal opponent, Kian Bittles of Northern Ireland four to one.
