Jacques Scott keeps their spirits up

It’s enough to get the champagne corks popping and lift spirits.

Jacques Scott have become the latest Cayman business to team up with the Cayman Islands Amateur Boxing Association.

The news comes soon after Cayman’s boxers returned from Jamaica having beaten the Jamaicans three bouts to one.

In front of thousands including former heavyweight champion Lennox Lewis and tennis star Serena Williams, at the Treasure Beach Sports Complex, in Kingston, Cayman put on a master class.

Cayman captain Tafari Ebanks completely outclassed Toriano Nicholas of Tiger Gym. Hopkin Ebanks in only his sixth fight beat Joshua Davidson and improved to a 5-1 record.

Diego Rodriquez scored Cayman’s third win in a one sided bout against Shimon Gayle and Bruce Lee Coulson fought bravely but was outpointed by the more experienced Michael Gardner.

It’s been a good year for Cayman’s boxers, with Tafari and Kendall Ebanks competing at the World Amateur Boxing Championships in Kazakhstan in October.

Next year promises to be brighter still with the Commonwealth Games and the CACSO Games on the agenda.

Boxing association president Terence Spencer was at the official launch of the sponsorship with trainer Norman Wilson.

Spencer said: “We are very grateful to Jacques Scott for their support. We have a big year ahead and will need all the support we can get to achieve our goals.”

Jon Cubbon, Heineken brand manager for Jacques Scott’s said: “When the opportunity arose to support these guys, we jumped at it. Cayman have some really talented young boxers and we’re very pleased to be able to help and hopefully we’ll see them at the Olympics in 2016.”
