Young boxer takes on second pro challenge

| 21/11/2011

Peter Lewison.jpg(CNS): Local pro boxer Peter “Lightning” Lewison will be fighting his second professional boxing match against Florida’s Brant Skyler on Saturday 26 November. The 24-year-old Caymanian boxer, following in the footsteps of his role model, Caymanian boxer Charles “Killa” Whittaker, made the transition from amateur to professional boxer in June this year when he fought his first professional fight, alongside Whittaker, in “Ambush” at Camana Bay. Lewison knocked out Florida fighter Alex Lubo in the second round, despite Lubo’s greater experience. As an amateur boxer, Lewison excelled in the New York Golden Gloves competition and spent time training at the world famous Gleasons Gym in New York, which has trained world class boxers such as Mike Tyson. 

Saturday’s event looks set to be an exciting one, also featuring undercard fights by local up and coming amateur boxers Thomas McField, Aaron Powell and Dariel Ebanks.

Doors open at 6:30pm at the D Dalmain Ebanks Boxing gym in the Truman Bodden Sports Complex. Tickets are available now. Call 927 0092 or visit www.lightninglewison.com for further details.
