South American Games bronze medalists, Colin Lewis and Keevin Allicock have their hard hats on, putting in work in the gym ahead of the Centra America and Caribbean (CAC) Games scheduled for Barranquilla, Colombia from July 19 to August 3.
The two standout fighters with their respective coaches, Terrence Poole and Sebert Blake are working on chinks in their armour.
According to Poole, timing and accuracy are the main focus being worked on with the light welterweight Lewis. “I think if he was a bit more accurate with his punches at the South American Games he would have done better than the bronze medal”.
President of the Guyana Boxing Association (GBA), Steve Ninvalle told this publication yesterday that he expects the two standout pugilists to return home with hardware from Colombia.
“They have been exposed throughout this year to quality opponents at international tournaments and have been improving with each, so I expect them to do us proud once again.”
Meanwhile, at the Games, Guyana will be represented in the disciplines of hockey (male and female), table tennis (male and female), squash (male and female), rugby (male), boxing, track and field and badminton.
In April, the Guyana Olympic Association named Deon Nurse as the Chef-De-Mission.
