In a move to follow up on the success and momentum from the now defunct Contender Boxing Series, the inaugural Wray and Nephew Rum Punch Boxing Series is set to go off on Friday at the Spanish Town Prison Oval in St Catherine.
The series will feature 5 fights in one night and will also be staged in Treasure Beach, St Elizabeth on November 30 and in Half Way Tree on December 13. Trainer and promoter Carl Grant says the series has come at the right time.
“We have the Olympics coming up next year and these guys are being starved of fights. We have three nights of exciting amateur boxing with professionals as well,” noted Grant.
