Six Jamaica vs Panama fights in night of boxing
Boxers from Jamaica and Panama will clash in four amateur bouts at the Barbican Beach tonight as part of a night of boxing, the first fans will have seen outside the Contender Series setting for a while.
The six-fight card will also feature two professional fights between middleweight Kestna Davis, who is seen as a bright prospect for the future, and wily veteran Anthony Osbourne, in a bout scheduled for five rounds.
The other fight has two newcomers to the pro ranks seeking a first victory, welterweights Nico Yeyo and Fabian Tucker.
The first pro fight will be a case of youth versus experience. Davis predicted yesterday that he will win while Osbourne hinted that his years of experience would definitely give him the edge over his young opponent.
The amateur section of the programme will see Jamaican lightweight boxers Marvin Shea from the Jamaica Defence Force and Sanjay Williams from Bruising Gym going up against Jhonathan Miniel and Leonel Guttierrez, respectively.
In the other two bouts, Jamaican middleweight Janathan Hanson from Stanley Couch Gym will go against Luis Hernandez. Super heavyweight Ricardo Brown from C.C. Foster Gym, will take on Panamanian Ronaldo Bermudez. When the Panamanians arrived in Jamaica on Thursday, they predicted that they would win all their bouts, and their trainer even stated that their superior boxing technique would take them home safely against their Jamaican counterparts.
