Sixteen welterweight boxers, including eight from other Caribbean countries, will be fighting for championship honours.

There will be eight preliminary bouts over six rounds each.

These will be followed by the four quarterfinal bouts, also over six rounds.

The two semi-finals will be over eight rounds each and the grand final in early July will be over 10 rounds.
