-as Allicock, McKenzie, Niles, Farley win on night two
Guyana’s dominance of the Caribbean Boxing Championships (CBC) continued last night at the Cliff Anderson Sports Hall and the locals are poised to regain the coveted country trophy.
The local pugilists inspired by the vocal crowd, were victorious in all but one of their five bouts on the 12-fight international card.
Led by exciting victories from bantamweight Keevin Allicock and middleweight Ashton Niles, the pugilists from the 592 did not disappoint on night two after winning five of their six bouts on opening night.
Allicock pounded out a unanimous decision verdict against a game Trinidadian, Anthony Joseph in arguably the most entertaining fight on the card while Niles was victorious via a second round stoppage of a gassed John Korrie also of the Twin Island Republic.
Guyana’s lone loss came via the gloves of Trinidadian, Michael Alexander. He edged out Colin Lewis in a thrilling battle of the Region’s best light welterweight boxers who went toe-to-toe in a bruising encounter.
Held annually, the four-night event is scheduled to recommence this evening from 18:00hrs.
