After a nearly two-year hiatus, one of Cayman’s pro pugilists is set to step back into the ring.
Boxer Dariel Ebanks says he’s set to fight Jamaican national Anthony Osbourne 4 June at the D. Dalmain Ebanks Boxing Gym.
Ebanks last fight came in May of 2014, when he beat American Marlon Farr by unanimous decision.
“I’m feeling great,” Ebanks said. “I’ve done the training. Before they let me know about the fight, I was doing a little training, doing a little running and stuff like that just to keep in shape. I’m feeling great. I’m feeling great. I’m excited. I’m excited to get back in the ring and let’s see where this takes me.”
Osbourne wasn’t the original selected opponent, Ebanks said, adding that Serge Cadeus dropped out of the fight.
Osbourne is 11-39-1 in his 20-year professional career. He’s 40 years old and stands 5-feet, 7-inches and fights predominantly in the middleweight class, according to Boxrec.com.
Ebanks is 2-0 in his career, stands 5’11” and fights generally in the super middleweight class.
