James optimistic about the

KINGSTON, Jamaica -- Head of the Jamaica
Boxing Association Stephen James had eight
reasons for optimism about the sport in the
island following the Caribbean Development
Boxing Championships last week in Barbados.
James said Jamaica's reputation in the sport was
enhanced following its capture of eight medals
at the Championships and more success could
be reaped with the right amount of nurturing of
Said James: "We will be working from now on
building for the tournaments coming up, but we
wanted to have a stronger presence in the region, we
wanted to stake our claim, and although we went
with the intention to get all gold, we are pleased.
They represented us very well."
The Jamaicans collected two gold medals from
Jerone Ennis and female pugilist Kerron Thomas in
addition to four silver and two bronze.James was
fulsome in his praise for the 16-year-old Thomas, a
product of a project by the Association to introduce
the sport to inner-city youths in Denham Town,
Hannah Town and Fletchers Land in a bid to instill
discipline. She earned her gold medal in the novice
flyweight after beating Iniggakaya Lythcott from
host country Barbados.
"Kerron went through this programme and
went on to represent Jamaica and achieved gold
after boxing for eight months, so it shows that a
lot can come out of the inner cities," said James.
"She represents more than just boxing. She rep-
resents that gold can come from anywhere." James
believes that Ennis, whose gold came following a
tie with Hopkin Ebanks of the Cayman Islands
in the final of the youth welterweight, is a boxer
with a bright future.
"Jerone is just an unbelievable talent," said
James. "Him going and getting the gold, we were
expecting that, so it's just to manage him and keep
his ego down and the focus on track." James said
a number of the other medal winners had shown
potential and with the right amount of the work
can improve in the sport. "It's not just Kerron and
Jerone, all the others," he said. "(Super) heavy-
weight Ricardo Brown, only had a couple fights and
he went up against elite boxers and did well. (CMC)
