Four of St. Lucia’s top boxers are currently on an intensive month-long training camp in Trinidad, as part of preparations for the upcoming Central American and Caribbean Qualifier in Mexico, and the Commonwealth Games in the Gold Coast, Australia.
Nathan Ferrari, Lyndell Marcellin, Marvin Anthony and Kareem Boyce departed the island last week, to join some of the region’s top boxers from Anguilla, Barbados and Guyana.
Funding for the athletes came from the SLOC, after an invitation was extended by the President of the Trinidad and Tobago Boxing Association, Cecil Forde to the Saint Lucia Boxing Association.
President of the SLBA, David Shakes Christopher says the boxers are currently on a military camp in Camp David. He also said in his last conversation with them, that they’re doing quite well with the training and are looking forward to the Central American Games in March.
One of the boxers, Nathan Ferrari, is set to get a rematch with Colin Louis- which he lost to last the Boxing Championships held in St. Lucia at the Beausejour Indoor Facility in December 2017. Ferrari and Louis will go head to head on Feb 25th in Guyana.
Meanwhile an official announcement will be made on the islands boxing representatives for the Commonwealth Games by the end of this month.
