GUYANA CHRONICLES – The three St Lucian boxers who arrived in Guyana on Wednesday are brimming with confidence ahead of the inaugural Caribbean Schoolboys and Juniors’ tournament which boxes off this evening at the Cliff Anderson Sports Hall from 18:00hrs.
Speaking to Chronicle Sport yesterday at the Windjammer Hotel on Alexander Street, Kitty, Georgetown, the trio all boasted of winning their respective weight classes.
The boxers – Nathan Ferrari, Kareem Boyce and Taj Brown – disclosed that this is not their first visit to Guyana for a tournament, as they were all here last year when the Guyana Boxing Association (GBA) staged the Caribbean Amateur Boxing Championships at the same venue.
However, at that tournament they all failed in their quest to win gold.
Despite that however, they all have been very hard at training for this championship since learning of it through their coach, Guyana’s Conrad Hunte, a former Guyana amateur lightweight boxer.
