Bahamas vs Guyana Contender clash

March 30, 2016

Revlon Lake from Guyana and Anthony Woods from The Bahamas, clash tonight in the fourth week of the preliminary round of the Wray and Nephew Contender series for welterweights, at the Chinese Benevolent Association auditorium.

Boxing fans could well see one of the most competitive bouts of the series, when these two veterans clash. The action starts at 9.30 p.m. and will be broadcast live on Television Jamaica.

Lake, who is 37 years old, has a record of eight wins, 13 losses and two draws, and has fought in the series before. On March 19, 2014, he went up against Jamaica's Sakima Mullings, who eventually went on to win the title, and was knocked out in four rounds.

Woods, who is 31, is from Nassau, but is representing the USA team in the series. He will be making his Jamaican debut. He also has a negative wins versus losses record, with eight victories and 19 losses. What is clear, however, is that both men will take a lot of experience into the ring tonight, and this could lead to a very keen encounter.

Lake has been boxing as a professional since 2005 and has fought for several Caribbean titles.

Woods has also been in the professional ranks since 2005, and he too has had some interesting encounters along the way, campaigning in Florida, Puerto Rico, and The Bahamas.

Neither boxer is known for punching power, so boxing skills will determine the winner. It is a fight that can go either way, and has all the earmarks of a close encounter.
