Fans attending the Night of Boxing Action on Saturday at Springer Memorial School have been warned to look out for the flying fists of Dorinda Weekes.
The supremely confident Weekes, who aims to become the best female boxer ever seen in Barbados, has vowed to put on a show in her 60kg clash with NZingha Howell.
“I missed out on AIBA [the International Amateur Boxing Association’s Women’s Championships] as I was out of the island, so I intend to introduce my fighting skills to Barbados from Saturday night,” she said.
The solidly-built fighter said she loved boxing from the time she was introduced to the sport by Gary Bowen at primary school. (KB)
