The 2017 Island Rumble hosted by boxing superstar Manny Pacquiao is expected to have as many as nine bouts. The bouts will feature our very own boxer Dariel Ebanks, as well as regional fighters from Cuba, Bahamas, Jamaica, United States and the United Kingdom including the top bill fight and exhibition fights with the the undefeated and rising middleweight star Luis Cuba Arias.
“For people like Dariel I think you are quite aware he is the star of the Cayman Islands boxing team along with some of the other guys but for Dariel he will take a lot from this, having to fight possibly in front of thousands of people instead of hundreds. To further his career this will be no shock for him later in his career, if he wants to go to Vegas to fight it wont be a problem. So this will help him long term to grow and be the star that Cayman Islands so deserves.
The Island Rumble is set to take place on Saturday January 7 at Camana Bay’s Festival Green.
