Harvey, Jackman and Inverary selected for AMBC Continental Championships
The Guyana Boxing Association (GBA) has selected three youth boxers to compete at the American Boxing Confederation (AMBC) Round-Robin Continental Battles Championships in Mexico from October 8 to 16.
For Travis Inverary, Patrick Harvey and the undefeated Alesha Jackman, it will be a shot in the arm as they prepare for possible participation in the Junior Pan American Games in Colombia later in the year.
While Harvey has already sealed his spot at the Games, the other two are on the ropes awaiting confirmation on their spots for the November 25 to December 5 Games in Colombia.
Additionally, GBA President Steve Ninvalle stated that Terrence Poole, the Technical Director of the association, has been named as Coach/Manager for what will be the second time in 2021 a Guyanese boxing contingent will be in Mexico.
Meanwhile, earlier this month, the GBA Head had announced that the AMBC Elite Championships, slated for this weekend in Colombia, had been cancelled.
However, Olympian Keevin Allicock, Colin Lewis, and Desmond Amsterdam are still hard at work, now that attention has turned to the World Championships, slated for October 24 to November 6 in Belgrade, Serbia.
