GBA to pull out all stops to send formidable team to the `Jamaica Versus’ series

first_imgPRESIDENT of the Guyana Boxing Association (GBA), Steve Ninvalle, said his association would be pulling out all the stops to ensure a formidable team of boxers represent the Golden Arrowhead at the intended `Jamaica versus’ series which is slated for Jamaica in October.According to reports, the GBA was invited by the Jamaica Boxing Association (JBA) to be a part of the third annual `series’.Following the success of the Jamaica versus the Cayman Islands and Jamaica versus Panama, the JBA need a sterner test from the best in the Caribbean, hence an invitation was sent to the GBA to field a team.The JBA president, Stephen Jones is quoted as saying “those two successful events set the stage for what will be the most electrifying night of all when Caribbean powerhouse Team Guyana visits the shores of Jamaica in October.Guyana has been excelling at sports right across the board and boxing is certainly no different as they have been churning out Caribbean champions on all levels and have proven themselves as the nation to measure yourself against”.According to Ninvalle, to this end, a take-away lunch is planned for August 6 as a means of raising funds to help offset the expenses that the GBA will incur.last_img
