Unhappy return for Shaka
CHRISTOPHER “SHAKA” HENRY’S return to the ring on Friday night after two years away did not enhance his reputation.
The former top boxer lost a six-round contest in a split decision to Jamaican Ramel “Subzero” Lewis in a junior middleweight contest at the Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Centre.
Two judges scored it 59-56 to Lewis and the third 56-48 to Henry. Some members of the audience were amazed that the judges had scored so many rounds for Henry.
The apparently ring-rusty Henry, who was rated No. 9 by the World Boxing Council in 2004, was mostly on the defensive against the aggressive Lewis.
