Boxing association, Wilson part ways

The Cayman Islands Boxing Association and coach Norman Wilson have parted ways.

Details are few, but Cayman 27 has learned Wilson’s tenure ended following his trip to Argentina with Hopkin Ebanks last month for an Olympic qualifying event.

“I did turn that programme around,” said Wilson, who added that he holds no animosity toward CIBA. “When I came there Cayman wasn’t even recognised by hardly nobody and (the International Boxing Association). But now Cayman is recognised.  Cayman has a good foundation now.”

Wilson has worked with Cayman Islands boxers since 2011. During that time, four boxers made trips to Olympic qualifying events, four boxers were invited to the AIBA World Championships and many others were invited to international training camps and events.

“Whoever takes over as coach, I just wish them all the best,” Wilson said.

An e-mail sent to CIBA President Ann-Marie Byrd seeking comment on the matter was not returned.
