Report by RJRGLEANER Communications Group Sports Reporter Spencer Darlington

Justin Mayweather, the younger brother of renowned world welterweight boxer Floyd Mayweather, will headline the i-fight promotion 6-fight card on Saturday dubbed "A Night of Explosive Boxing" at the Jamaica College Auditorium.

The announcement was made on Tuesday morning at Usain Bolt's Tracks and Records Sports Bar and Lounge as I-Fight Promotions and Justin Mayweather delivered on their promise made during Justin's visit to the island in August when he mentioned that his first fight for 2020 would have been in Jamaica.

Jamaican boxing fans will see Justin Mayweather who is undefeated in his five professional fights with 4 coming by way of TKO going up against Christian Foster who has suffered three defeats from as many fights in the bantamweight division.

The contest will be over 4 rounds in the welterweight class and according to Chris Joy, CEO of I-Fight Promotions, this is the first of several fights where world-rated boxers will showcase their skills infront of the Jamaican fans.

Stephen "Bomber" Jones, president of Jamaica Boxing Board of Control (JBBC) says to have a member of the Mayweather family boxing in Jamaica is a great boost for the sport.

The co-feature on the night will see Jamaica's Jermaine Bowen who is returning to the ring after a two year absence, going up against Angel Martinez in a middleweight contest. Bowen's record stands at 2 and 3, while Martinez is 8-10 and 3, but Bowen is  promising the Jamaicans supporters an explosive affair over the four rounds.

Bowen's gym-mate Martin Anderson will face Christopher Rodriquez in a welterweight bout. Anderson's record stands at 1, 9 and 2,while Rodriquez won on debut and promises to put on a show for the Jamaican fans. There will be five other local match-ups on the programme.
