Wray & Nephew Fight Nights is set to return to downtown Kingston for an electrifying seaside showdown to close the calendar year.

Undefeated since the initiation of the boxing competition, professional boxer Jermaine “Breezy” Richards is gearing up for his third match of the season. The Breezy Castle fights on December 16 promise a thrilling display of skill and determination, featuring not only Richards but also a fresh group of female challengers vying for supremacy in the ring.

Fans will eagerly anticipate the return of Ian Darby, who left a lasting impact in his previous bout against Fabian ‘Truck’ Tucker on October 7, last month. As the boxing fever rises, the anticipation for Darby’s performance for the second time in the series is palpable.

Jamaica Boxing Board (JBB) president, Stephen Jones, in expressing enthusiasm for the growing popularity of the Fight Night series, said: “The popularity of the Fight Night series has advanced way more rapidly than we expected, which is a great position to be in as more eyes are on the sport and Jamaica as a boxing destination.”

The upcoming fight card promises at least six amateur bouts and two professional matches. Jones noted, “Two of our fan favourites, Jermaine ‘Breezy’ Richards and Ian ‘The Impact’ Darby, will face off against Colombian opponents to cap off what is sure to be our most exciting night to date,” he said.

Boxing fans are fired up, and boxers are eager to showcase their talent and elevate their careers,” he said.
