Cayman’s best crop of amateurs will do battle with their Jamaican counterparts at Boatswain’s Beach tomorrow.
A turtle farm is an unlikely place for a boxing show but organiser Donie Anglin feels it’s a great way to promote one of West Bay’s landmarks and re-introduce the sport to the district 27 years after the last bill there.
Top of the bill is an all Caymanian affair with Troy ‘The Real Deal’ O’Neil matched against Peter ‘Lightning’ Lewison at cruiserweight.
Cayman’s Kendall Ebanks beat Anthony Clarke easily last November but the Jamaican has trained like a maniac since and has promised to reverse the decision.
Also on the bill is Dariel Ebanks, Eric McField, Jason Parchment, Tracey Seymour and Curtis Henderson.
There will be two exhibition bouts between Cruz Barnett and Jerrin Carter and another between Jonothon Hurlston and Jeffery Bodden.
The referees are Philmore Bodden and Michael Peart.
Anglin expects a full house of 400. Some have even flown in from the States for this show.
Doors open 6.30pm and the show starts at 8pm. Tickets are $10 or $20 ringside.
Tickets are available from Funky Tangs, J&M Electronics and Boatswain’s Beach and also Donie Anglin on: 939 7944.
