KINGSTON:

The Green Team (Jamaica) will be fighting to make it two-from-two on Wednesday, as Gregory Miller faces Guyanese Derrick Richmond of the Yellow Team (Caribbean) in the Wray & Nephew Contender boxing series.

The 32-year-old Miller is 5'11", while his Guyanese counterpart comes in at 5'8", and is 25 years old. Their Wednesday duel is scheduled for 9:30 p.m. at the Chinese Benevolent Association and will be shown live on TVJ.

The two will fight after the Yellow Team won the three components of the second challenge. Held in the heart of the capital city, at Wray's Tavern in downtown Kingston, a large number of onlookers descended upon the scene to watch the boxers compete in fun, yet, highly competitive rounds of board games for the challenge.

The Yellow Team won the challenge by defeating the Green Team in the board games, ludo and taboo, while the Green Team won the dominoes.

As a result of their victory, Guyana's Derrick Richmond chose Gregory Miller as he believes Miller "is the weakest on the Green Team, by record.

"I am going to knock him out," he predicted.

In response to Richmond, Miller expressed that he "feels good about the fight".

The Wray & Nephew Contender is aired live each Wednesday on TVJ at 9:30 p.m., and fans can also catch the action live at the Chinese Benevolent Association for $500.
