Boxer Tsetsi “Lights Out” Davis has an unenviable task of giving Team Jamaica the third spot in the Wray and Nephew White Overproof Rum Contender Series when he faces Ryan Young, the Team Canada number two seed, in the last semi-final match on the three-fight card at the Chinese Benevolent Association auditorium tonight starting at 8:30 pm.
Davis, the number three seed of Team Jamaica, has not fought since his win against Team Canada’s unseeded Dave Leblond in their opening bout in which he had sustained an injury and also raised controversy.
At the weigh-in yesterday, chief handler, trainer Wayne Sharpe told the Jamaica Observer: “My fighter is in more than good shape for his upcoming fight. We just finished quite a good training camp and he is expected to return to the ring in his best fighting shape for his fight against Ryan Young.”
When the Observer arrived for the weighing-in, Young had already weighed-in and left, but judging from his big showing against Ramel Lewis, more fireworks are anticipated as both boxers are reported to be in the best of health for this important last semi-final clash scheduled for approximately 9:45 pm.
This will follow a Wray and Nephew 40-minute entertainment package with on-stage skits and giveaways following one of two amateur fights that open the programme at 8:30 pm.
