The event is a partnership between the T&T Boxing Association, LAY Management Group and the Pearl and Bunty Lara Foundation. Last Tuesday the same venue staged the first leg of the three-night series which was an all T&T affair during a six-bout card that was backed by local entertainment which was witnessed by many sports fans among them was Darryl Smith, the Minister of Sport and Youth Affairs.

This evening programme will see many of those pugilists return to the ring to match skills against their Caribbean counterparts.

These fight cards are being used to help T&T Olympic hopefuls prepare for the Games in August. At the first leg T&T Olympic hopefuls Aaron Prince and Michael Alexander featured in the main event, with the former coming out the winner on points.
