The largest crowd for an amateur boxing event in recent memory showed up at the Cliff Anderson Sports Hall last night to witness the finale of the Caribbean Boxing Championships and the local pugilists did not disappoint.
From the gloves of several gold medal performances, Team Guyana regained the coveted country trophy for the fourth annual fixture which was birthed in the 592.
Guyana finished atop the medal table with 10 gold medals following the conclusion of the four-night championships which was previously held in Barbados and St Lucia. Trinidad finished with four gold medals while Barbados, Guadeloupe, St Lucia and St Maarten finished with one apiece.
While Guyana boxed its way to the team honours, prize pugilist, Keevin Allicock (bantamweight champion) was the fighter who took home the individual overall best boxer award.
