BOXING: Contender Series enters quarter-finals tonight

Published:Wednesday | May 14, 2014 | 12:06 PM

The first semi-finalist of the 2014 Wray & Nephew Contender Boxing Series will be decided tonight when two of the country’s most exciting fighters - Tsetsi Davis and Ramel ‘Sub Zero’ Lewis - face off in the opening quarterfinal bout.

The bout, scheduled for six rounds, will take place at the Chinese Benevolent Association auditorium.

It will be the second time that the two boxers will meet in the Contender Series.

Last year both boxers met at the semi-final stage and Davis scored a unanimous decision to qualify for the final.

However, he lost in the final to top seed Devon Moncrieffe.

Davis booked his spot in the quarterfinals following a unanimous decision victory over Derrick 'Dangerous' Richmond from Guyana on April 16.

Lewis got to the quarterfinals by securing a split decision victory against Barbadian Gardel Roberts.

The quarter-final bout starts at 9:30 p.m.

However, action at the venue starts at 8:30 with two amateur bouts.

The other boxers in the quarter-finals are Jamaicans Sakima Mullings, the number one seed, Donovan ‘Police’ Campbell, Kevin Hylton and Richard Holmes along with Barbadian Christopher 'Shacka’ Henry and Howard Eastman of Guyana.

The boxers are fighting for a top prize of $2 million, with the runner-up earning $500,000, third place $250,000 and fourth $200,000.
