Based on the outcome and productivity of past events, CABC executive Ray Minus Jr expects the trend to continue this weekend. "Quite a few of our young boxers will be able to make their debuts and that is awesome because we are trying to get more kids involved in the programme, that is our aim," Minus Jr said. "We are very excited about this next week. Many kids are preparing who have not fought yet and are looking to make their debuts. The main event will feature a welterweight bout between Anwar Davis and Keiron Knowles. Other bouts will include Tavio Adderley vs Raymond Hudson, Ahaquille Johnson vs Allen Joeseph, Neko Olibrice vs Walnick Richards, Philip James vs Brandon Bastian, along with six other matches. "So many successful good things came out of this programme and these shows in particular, some of the biggest names in Bahamian boxing today. Even persons who went on to have thriving professional careers in all walks of life, not just in boxing. "It has produced Olympic boxers, Commonwealth boxers and Bahamian champions and we are happy to be able to continue this event. This will give the boys a wealth of experience in the country," said Minus Jr. "We want to showcase everybody and really, really bring boxing together and get everybody involved in these tournaments.
