Punches fly as boxers thrill Sea Rocks crowd

FLOAT LIKE A BUTTERFLY, sting like a bee.

The competitors in the second Caribbean Development Boxing Tournament (CDBT) sent punch after punch to try to overpower each other at the Sea Rocks Dome, Barbados Beach Club, Maxwell, on Tuesday night.

In the third match of the night, Barbadian boxer Charles Cox knocked out St Lucian Marvin Anthony in the first heavyweight match in the second round, which took many a spectator back to the days of Mike Tyson fighting against Frank Bruno.

The unexpected knockout sent the crowd into a frenzy, and that match set the pace for the remainder of the night.

The next Barbadian fighter, Justin Edwards, was not as fortunate as Cox and conceded defeat against St Lucian Nathan Ferrari who all but made mincemeat of the local boy in the light welterweight category of the semi-final.

Another crowd favourite was Guyanese Christopher Moore, who fought courageously against Alex Smith of the Cayman Islands in the elite category of the quarter-final.

Knocked out

Ricardo Carter of Jamaica who fought in the elite lightweight division was also able to knock out Jamesy Greenaway of Dominica during their bout. Despite Greenaway getting back to his feet, he was not able to hold his composure and soon conceded defeat.

Other winners for the night in their respective categories included Dariel Ebanks of the Cayman Islands, Daniel Hilton of Jamaica, Rufus Vesprey and Nelon Cyrus of Grenada, and Joel Williamson of Guyana. (RA)
