The Champion Amateur Boxing Club (CABC) staged the 21st annual Ray Minus Sr. End-of-Year Amateur Boxing Tournament, and the event turned out to be a real showdown. The event was dubbed "Freeport vs. Nassau -- The final round, fight to the finish". It was the final CABC amateur boxing show of 2015, and event organizer and club head coach Ray Minus Jr. is pleased with how everything turned out, and the year they had.
"Well, the last event of the year is successfully behind us, and it is safe to say that it was a grand year for us, and we couldn't have done it without the help of a lot of people. Champion Amateur Boxing Club is proud and thankful to have such kindness and strong support coming from everyone, and we're looking forward to what 2016 brings," he said.
The show featured four explosive matches at the Nassau Stadium on Fowler Street. In the main event, Lennox Boyce won on points over Trey Davis, 24-21. In other matches, Devon Marshall won on points over Wellington Sears, 26-24; Jhonny Gue won on points over Cameron Sweeting, 31-25; and Erby Filsame won on points over Jaden Lockhart, 32-24.
The best fight of the evening award went to the bout of Marshall and Sears, the most improved boxer was Gue, and the most outstanding boxer was Boyce. Boyce also won the end-of-year Ray Minus Sr. award for outstanding production throughout the course of the year. The club offers special thanks to its sponsors, the D'Albenas Agency, Commonwealth Bank, Bahamas Vision Centre, Wallace Whitfield & Co., Ron's Electric, Da'Javou Beauty & Barber Supplies, JBR Building Supplies and the Sports Centre.
CABC wishes to thank all of its supporters over the years, all amateur boxers across The Bahamas who participated in the shows this year, all of the boxing fans and members of the media.
"Champion Amateur Boxing Club and the sport of boxing could not be as productive as it was without the help and support of many. We wish all a very merry Christmas and a blessed and safe new year," said Minus.
CABC's first show of the year is expected to be held the second weekend in January.
