The Abaco Boxing Team is getting ready to travel to Nassau next month to participate in the Golden Gloves Boxing Tournament. The tournament is organized by boxing champion Ray Minus and is scheduled for October 13.
At least six competitors, aged 8 to 15, will enter the competition. This upcoming fight will be their first ever competitive match.
Coach Daren Miller, who has been training the boys since the beginning of the year, is very exciting about the event. He has been pressing the team into more active training every day of the week after school.
The Ministry of Sports representative, Mr. Ishmael “Stretch” Morley and Coach Miller have been sending letters to the community in the hope of getting sponsorships to cover the travel expenses which will amount to approximately $1,400, which includes airfare, hotel, ground transportation and food.
