Three members of the Cayman Islands National Amateur Boxing team will head off for Barbados, in search of Gold medals on Monday, December 5.
Dariel Ebanks, Hopkin Ebanks and Alexander Smith head off in confident mood, hoping to do their country proud next week at the Caribbean Boxing Championships being held in Barbados, starting on the 6th December, wrapping up on Saturday 10th December.
The Cayman team have had great preparation in recent weeks, taking on a tough team from London in at the Lions Centre in October and travelling to neighbours Jamaica last month. Dariel Ebanks is expected to fair well, remaining unbeaten since his return to the Amateur ranks in June this year. West Bayer’s, Hopkin Ebanks and Alexander Smith will also expect to be amongst the medals when the action kicks off next week.
Travelling with the team will be coaches Nayon ‘Donie’ Anglin and Ryan Barrett, as well as President, Ann Marie Byrd and Vice President, Leyla Jackson, who will also be attending a regional AIBA meeting hosted by the World Bodies President Wu Ching Kuo immediately following the Championships.
Cayman Islands Boxing official, Angel Almanza, is also heading to Barbados, travelling ahead of the team to attend an AIBA officiating course prior to the Championships.
