Also on the card will be amateur bantamweight boxer Felice Groves.Lewis and Henry know each other as they have been together in the Wray and Nephew Contender series, but they never met before. Henry last fought here in 2015 when he lost by retirement in the fourth round in a bout against Tsetsi Davis.Lewis fought in the Contender series this year, and after defeating Fred Muhammad by technical knockout in his first fight, he lost to Michael Gardener on points. He has always been a Contender favourite because of his aggressive style of boxing and reached the finals in 2012, where he lost on points to Donovan ‘Police’ Campbell over 10 rounds.Before leaving Jamaica on Wednesday, Lewis said he was confident of victory.”I have been training hard for this fight, and I will be going in with one goal, and that is to win. Shaka is a good fighter, but I am going to pressure him all the way,” Lewis said.A close, hard-fought contest is expected.last_img read more
