ST JOHN’S, Antigua – A lone pugilist, Tuvia Lewis from Uprising Boxing Gym, will be heading to St Martin this weekend to participate in an invitational boxing tournament. He will contest the Light Heavyweight class.

The boxing officials will leave the island on Thursday, April 19 for the Friday night event.
Lewis will be amongst boxers from France, Trinidad and Tobago, Martinique, Guadeloupe, and other Caribbean countries.
