Boxers Market their Skills

Arthur Langilier (l) and Darius Cetoute will once again square off in the boxing ring when the St Lucia Amateur Boxing Association stages a grand exhibition Sunday on the market step.

The St Lucia Amateur Boxing Association (SLABA) is preparing to stage what one official called a very special exhibition, on the market steps on Sunday beginning at 3 pm.
Special! You better believe it. In the past the SLABA has staged numerous exhibitions, but this promises to be the Mother of all boxing exhibitions. Plans for this extravaganza were recently announced at a press conference at the Wharf Restaurant.
At that time Acting President of the SLABA, Joseph “Reds” Perreira, and Public Relations Officer, Brian McDonald, provided the press with details of this special boxing exhibition.
Perreira who is sold on the idea of boxing on the market steps said: “I think this is a real new day for amateur boxing to be able to have this public exhibition. We have a track record of taking exhibitions to different parts of St Lucia and this is a new day where we can take it right to the doorstep of people in Castries and the greater environs.”
The Acting SLABA President was extremely grateful to the Castries City Council and Royal St Lucia Police Force, for their cooperation when it came to staging the event.
So far 10 bouts are scheduled to take place inside the ring that was used at Showtime-the biggest boxing event in St Lucia.
Mc Donald pointed out that the boxers earmarked for the exhibition are the cream of the crop of the SLABA. He mentioned names like Boxer of the Year Lyndell “The Russian” Marcellin, Alex Poyotte, Arthur  Langilier, Travis Maynard, Miguel Auguste, Dalton George all of whom represented St Lucia at one time in competitions overseas.
SLABA will use this opportunity to showcase not only their top boxers but some of their promising junior boxers. Of course the boxing association is also looking for new blood and feel this is a perfect opportunity for youngsters in Castries, to see what the sport is all about.
The St Lucia National Lottery is the main sponsor of this boxing exhibition which is expected to attract a large crowd.
Following are the matchups for the boxing exhibition which gets underway at 3 pm.
Travis Maynard vs Yanic Leon, Alex Poyotte vs Leroy James, Niaran David vs Kyghan Mortley, Miguel Auguste vs Giovanni Ermay, Lindell Marcellon vs Dalton George, Joshua Brown vs Melvon Phillip, Najsum Cox vs Trevor Lynch, Jamal Michael vs Brad Lewis, Joshua Duberry vs Hesley Lewis and Arthur Langilier vs Darius Cetoute.
