Boxing jets back in focus
FORMER INTERNATIONAL BOXER Edward “Yogi Bear” Neblett is throwing another punch to lift professional boxing in Barbados off the canvas.
Neblett told SATURDAY SUN that Jet Promotions will be staging a five-bout card – The Revival – on June 27 at the Gymnasium of the Garfield Sobers Sports Complex in Wildey, featuring two highly touted Canadian boxers.
“I would hate to stand around and see boxing die like that. All the fighters and fans have been saying that boxing is dead and have told me that I am the one to revive it,” Neblett said as he explained his latest foray in staging pro fights.
“I had refused to promote certain fights before because I like to see good matches so I waited until I was able to put together a quality card,” he added.
