Boxing will return to Giftland Mall

2nd WBC card for Guyana

The second World Boxing Council (WBC) youth and amateur programme for the Caribbean and Central America is heading to Guyana in exactly one month.

The date is set for April 9 when boxers will take to the squared circle at the Giftland Mall, Liliendaal, Greater Georgetown in order to prove their worth.

Seven bouts are carded for the night of action – three will be amateur fights and four will be pro.

While the three amateur matches are yet to be decided, the first pro fight will see Anson Greene of Guyana taking on Charwick Eswick out of Barbados. Greene has not seen much fighting since his debut, but his name will be remembered for his knockout victory over super middleweight champion Derek Richmond. Eswick has toured Guyana before, coming here only last year for a bout in which he was victorious. These two boxers will clash it out for four rounds in the catchweight category.

In the second pro fight, Imran “Magic” Khan will go toe to toe with the skills and flair of Keeve Alicock for six rounds in the lightweight division. Khan will take to the ring after his memorable fight with Quincy Gomes back in 2016, and will be looking to put his career back on track, while Alicock will certainly be confident heading into the fight.

Meanwhile, in the super middleweight class, Edmond deClue will match gloves with Winston Pompey before the main fight in the flyweight division between Dexter Marks of Guyana and Venezuela’s Lewis “Alberto” Requena.
