Press Release: Three boxers led by junior boxer of the year Nathan Ferarie, will be heading to Guadeloupe this evening. Police officer Colin Vidal and school boy Jovannus Fevrier are expected to also be in action this weekend. The team will be guided by veteran coach Conrad Frederick. Vidal 91 kg heavyweight and Fevrier 54kg featherweight will be entering the ring for the first time.
President of the boxing association David “Shakes” Christopher said “this exchange program between St. Lucia and Guadalupe is a collaborative plan towards developing new boxers and keeping the sport alive.”
The main bout of the event will comprise French youth champion boxer Kashan Jackobie taking on Nathan Ferriere of St Lucia. These are the two most talked about youth boxers coming out of last year’s Caribbean development tournament in Guyana. Farrier will be using this outing as major preparation for the Guyana schoolboys youth tournament later in the month. This trip was made possible by Mr. Omer Gumbs of Gaudaloupe who was present in St. Lucia for the celebration of the life of the late 2nd Vice President Brian Mc Donald. Team St. Lucia returns on Sunday.
