‘Lightning’ Allicock to fight at Terrence Alli National Open in early November
The Guyana Boxing Association will stage the Terrence Alli National Open from November 1-3 at the National Gymnasium, Mandela Avenue.
The tournament is the final statutory tournament on the association’s calendar of events for 2019 and gyms from across the country are expected to participate.
The National Open will be used to select a team to represent Guyana at the Caribbean Championship, scheduled for Trinidad from December 4-9. During the National Open the public will get a chance to witness the fistic fury of Caribbean Bantamweight champion ‘Lightning’ Keevin Allicock.
The 20-year-old has not fought on local soil since February when he roughed up his Trinidadian opponent during the Patrick Ford Memorial.
The upcoming competition will be his last for some time in Guyana as plans are to have him travel overseas for specialised training.
In addition to Allicock, Caribbean champions, Middleweight ‘Dynamite’ Desmond Amsterdam and Lightweight Jamal Eastman, known as ‘The Beast from Berbice’ will be on show.
Eastman won the Caribbean title with a single punch that dropped his Trinidadian opponent last year in Guyana. An added attraction to next week’s competition is former Caribbean champion, Light Welterweight Colin ‘Superman’ Lewis.
The Guyana Defence Force is the reigning champion of the tournament, which starts at 19:00h each night. Entrance fee is G$500 for stands and G$1000 for ringside.
