PRESIDENT OF THE Barbados Boxing Association Anthony Jones believes more needs to be done if boxing is to reach its full potential in the region.

Speaking on the final night of the Caribbean Development Boxing Tournament at the SeaRocks Dome on Saturday night, Jones said it was a successful week of competition but advances needed to be made across the board.

“The boxers, referees, judges and coaches did the best they could but they are many areas that require some development,” he told NATIONSPORT.

Zooming in on the boxers he explained that their skill level needed to be raised for them to fight both effectively and efficiently.
