Trinidad & Tobago Amateur Boxing Association recently Hosts National Championships

(FEB 10) The Trinidad & Tobago Amateur Boxing Association (TTABA) recently hosted their National Championships from January 30 to February 3rd. There were only three women’s bout but in an effort to give the local girls more experience, the TTABA invited neighboring islands to compete on the last day of the championships as an added attraction on the card.


The Barbados team:  Jenny Bendict, Iprecious Lyscott
and Kimberly Gittens.

Barbados and Guyana brought in teams of three and two female boxers respectively. The T&T team won the regional clash 3-2. The Caribbean girls showed some class, grit and determination especially in the junior Flyweight bout between tiny mites Yousanna Mohammed (T&T) and Iprecious Lyscott. The scores of 8-7 reflected the see-saw battle between the two girls as they each fought for victory. A last second flurry of punches by Mohammed secured her victory while the Bajan Lyscott won the crowd’s respect.


Three of the T&T team: Stephanie Allen, Kimberly Jackson
and Yousanna Mohammed

Stephanie Allen had an easier time defeating her Guyanese counterpart as she ran away with a 21-5 win. In her local bout though, the 11-5 score against Keitha Charles belied the fact that Allen had some trouble adjusting to the long arms of an aggressive Charles. In the end Allen used her vast experience to work her way around the ring and slip away from the constantly oncoming Charles.

Barbadian Jenny Benedict looked like a model out of the ring but when she matched gloves against Trinidadian Ingle Charles, she was very much the skillful boxer. Maintaining a tight defense and some snappy counters, Benedict walked away with a 9-5 victory.

In the battle of the Kimberly’s (Kimberly Gittens - Barbados and Kimberly Jackson – Trinidad) the first two rounds were scoreless as both girls threw punches that fell short of their target. The third round saw one point being registered and the final round had a marginal victory for Gittens who was surprised that she got a 3-2 victory. The announcer had to call the result three times before Gittens finally allowed her hand to be raised. Many, including the Gittens camp, seemed to think that Jackson did more than enough to win the bout. (A rematch between T&T and Barbados is being discussed).

In the final bout, T&T’s Chimere Taylor was all confidence and class as she glided around the ring defeating a stocky Therese London (Guyana) 16-3.

The girls were all getting prepared for the 2013 Elite Female Continental Championships which will be hosted by Trinidad and Tobago in May.

Stephanie Allen defeated Keitha Charles 11-5
