Veteran selector Ricky Trooper drew on all of his experience to win a heated battle in the finals of the Boom All-Star Sound Clash at Skateland in Half-Way Tree last Saturday.

Ricky Trooper, the owner of Sound Trooper, took on his nemesis, Avatar, from Black Blunt Sound System out of Negril, and the clash went down to the wire.

Avatar came out blazing in the opening 'juggling' round and the crowd reacted. But eventually his light started to get dim.

After two rounds, Trooper was staring at defeat, but the veteran warrior rose to the occasion and copped three rounds in a row, to the disappointment of the Negril-based sound system's fans, who were packed in front of the stage, blowing horns and brandishing torches.

After the clash, Ricky Trooper said that he was always confident that he would win.

"From the moment I won round three, I knew I had won this clash. I don't rush things, it's five rounds, and I'm happy for this victory," he said.

Sound Trooper walked away with $1 million and a trophy.

Earlier in the night, Admiral Bailey won the celebrity clash against Mr Lexx.
