Local Boxing a Knockout

Local Boxing, Jamaica

Boxing in Jamaica regained some of its glamour recently with the staging of the 15-week Wray and Nephew Contender boxing series, after being on the decline since the 1990s.


The highly popular Contender series, brought tremendous excitement to the sport in which activity and interest over the years have waned. The Wray and Nephew Limited-sponsored series was well supported by the public and was aired on Television Jamaica each Wednesday night beginning January 5, 2011.
