  1. St lucia always want to pick up people and make it their own. Where is this "Ferirre" surname from? I have never heard of this surname in St Lucia. Citizenship by investment working fast.

    • His name is Ferrari, Saint Lucian born and bred, and damn proud of it. What are you, anyway, the Civil Status Registrar?

  2. That is NOT a sport for young people with developing brains to take part in at all, at all, at all. That is a lot of foolishness. We do not know what types of brain damage are being inflicted on these young people. There should be a law against that. The children's brains are not yet even fully developed and stupid ignorant supposedly grownups are doing life damage to these young people? Those so-called adults should be sent to the jail house!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • There is a big difference between amateur boxing and professional boxing. Amateur boxing based on getting points by touches with the white part of the glove (though you could win by knockout it is rare). Because of this there is little reward to putting too much power in your punches. Boxers heads are also protected by headgear. In professional boxing points are giving based on intensity and power in addition to clean punches. Boxers are also not protected by headgear and referees do not have as much power to protect the fighters as there are higher stakes involved.
