Ring ‘n Ting: Jamaican Boxing Goes Primetime

Words by Jesse Serwer

_N4X0177 copy

In the ’70s, ’80s and ’90s, Jamaica could be counted on to produce a world-class boxer every couple of years. There was Mike “The Bodysnatcher” McCallum; the late Trevor Berbick, known to history as the guy Mike Tyson beat to claim his first heavyweight title AND the last professional fighter to face Muhammad Ali; and former welterweight champ Simon Brown. And that’s not even counting yard-blooded fighters from other soil, like Lennox Lewis, England’s Frank Bruno and Canada’s Razor Ruddock. The makers of The Wray & Nephew Contender, set to air at 9:30 on Wednesday nights on Jamaica’s TVJ, are hoping to “herald a new age of boxing in Jamaica” with the primetime series, which makes its debut next week.
