JBBC Youth Boxing Tournament

Caribbean Development featherweight boxing silver medallist Daniel Hilton will be the main attraction at the two-day Jamaica Boxing Board of Control (JBBC) Youth Boxing Tournament, which is set to begin this Saturday at the Stanley Couch Gym in Kingston at 7 p.m.

The 15-year-old was a member of Jamaica's five-man team that won two gold, two silver and a bronze at the regional tournament only a couple weeks ago and he will be the most recognised boxer attending the event, following his recent exploits. However, another boxer to watch will be St Thomas' Brandon Gordon.

Seven teams are down to participate in the tournament, including defending champions St Thomas Gym, Stanley Couch Gym, Bruisin' Gym, Seaview Gym, Sugar Knockout Gym, Punching-Tech Gym and Dynamic Trench Town Gym.

These gyms will feature junior boxers aged between 14 and 17 years, and youth boxers between 18 and 19 years, battling for the top honours.
