Twenty – Six Boxers Selected for National Boxing Training!

Press Release
Caribbean Development Boxing Tournament
October 26th 2017

The St. Lucia Boxing Association has called Twenty- Six (26) young boxers to official training for the upcoming Caribbean Development Boxing Tournament (2017) and Commonwealth Games (2018). Team St. Lucia has already won two regional titles this year, and are hoping to finish on top in yet another one. President of the St. Lucia Boxing Association David “Shakes” Christopher was quoted as saying: “All boxers have been called to training to have a fair chance to represent their country at this major tournament, the largest in the region.”

About 25 countries are down to compete in the regional championship, all with the hopes of defeating defending Champions Guyana. Guyana won most of the gold medals last year in Barbados, as St. Lucia finished a respectable sixth (6th). St. Lucia will be looking to improve on their medal tally from last year, which was one gold, one silver and one bronze. Also in the ambition of the local association, is to recapture the Junior Boxer of the tournament award, which was won by St. Lucia’s Omar Mann.

Boxers from as far as Jamaica in the north to Guyana in the south, including Suriname, will be in action. Despite the infighting among the AIBA members, the Caribbean Boxing fraternity is uniting in an effort to preserve boxing in the region with or without funding from the world governing body. Christopher further went on to say “We are calling on St. Lucians to support this tournament as it will contribute to the creation of champions and better citizens.”

The 3rd annual Caribbean Development Boxing Tournament will be held from the 13th – 16th December 2017, at the Beausejour Indoor Facility. St. Lucia’s training squad reads:
