Charles Whittaker gets the fight he’s been chasing for years this Saturday, 30 September, at the Lion’s Centre, Grand Cayman. The West Bayer will compete for the vacant NBA Jr. Middleweight World Championship Title, and defend his WBC Caribbean Championship Title agains Billy Lyell, set to fight against Whittaker.
‘Charles Whittaker is a very skillful and experienced fighter,’ said Lyell, ‘but I believe over 12 rounds, I will wear him down.’
Lyell, an American fighter, has won his last six fights in his opponent’s territory.
The evening will also feature three additional professional bouts, including Cayman’s Ian Osborne, and an amateur exhibition featuring Troy O’Neil.
Tickets are available at Reflections, Funky Tangs, Corita’s Copper Kettle, King’s Sport Centre, World Gym, Devil’s Hangout, 4 Winds Esso and Micro Matrix. Lucky listeners of Hot 104.1 fm, Cayrock 96.5 fm, and Radio Cayman can also win tickets leading up to the fight.
