#THE Bahamas Boxing Federation has had to reduce its national team to a five-member squad that will travel to compete in the Sugar Bert Boxing Championship in Kissimmee, Florida, this weekend.

#Federation president Vincent Strachan confirmed that the team had to be trimmed down because of the lack of funding and the fact that there were issues with one or two of the boxers that he will address on his return home next week.

#Set to travel are Clarence Hepburn, Keano Cox, Keanu Greene, Elijah Smith, Anai Powell and Carl Hield.

#National coach Valentino Knowles will no longer travel as Jermaine Gibson will step up to take on that role, assisted by Strachan, who is a certified coach, referee and judge.

#Disappointed in the fact that they once again had to reduce the team, Strachan said “no obstacles or set back will prevent us from moving forward.

#“There are deliberate efforts to stifle me and my administration. God is with us. We will not be moved.”
