Lewis makes 2016 Contender debut tonight

first_imgRamel ‘Sub Zero’ Lewis, a former finalist in the ‘Wray & Nephew Contender’ series, will make his 2016 debut tonight against Fard ‘The Messenger’ Muhammad from Las Vegas, Nevada, in a five round fight.The fight will be broadcast live on Television Jamaica at 9.30 pm.Lewis, who has a record of six wins, which include three knockouts and three losses, has not fought since May 2014, when he lost to Tsetsi Davis in another Contender bout. He added a lot of weight during this time and had some difficulty coming down to the 147 welterweight limit.LOSING WEIGHTHis camp has stated that he has been working very hard over the past six weeks, that his weight is down to the welterweight limit, and that he is in good condition. He told The Gleaner recently that he is “feeling great, and looking forward to the first fight.”Lewis is known to be a hard-hitting fighter with power in both hands and is always a feared opponent. He is also quite vulnerable, however, as he leaves himself wide open at times.His opponent, Muhammad, is a late replacement and is a mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter, who is making his debut as a professional boxer. His record shows that he has a 3-3 MMA professional record and fought as recently as February 20 as a bantamweight. Fighting as a welterweight tonight, he should not have any problems making that weight and could well be giving away a lot of pounds against Lewis.It will be interesting to see how he adjusts to the cleaner style of professional boxing. In MMA, one can use hands and feet and wrestle an opponent to the canvas. Boxing skills are necessary, but are not the primary weapons in MMA. The rules of professional boxing are very different, and Muhammad will have to change his style a lot to cope with the new format.The boxers in the competition are vying for the Wray & Nephew Welterweight Contender 2016 title and prize money of $2 million for the champion, $500,000 for the runner-up, $250,000 for third place, and $200,000 for fourth place.last_img read more
