Encouragement for Professional Boxer Amron Sands
Bahamian Heavyweight boxer Amron Sands went into his fight with an 11 win 0 loss record (9 KO), against Columbian undefeated brawler, Alexis Garcia. But suffered the first loss of his career in the third round of the match by TKO on Friday.
Minister of Youth, Sports & Culture, Iram Lewis extended his support and thanks to Sands who fought on the undercard, despite the loss.
Lewis said he was honoured to have chat with Amron prior to the fight to assure him of his unwavering support despite the outcome of the fight.
“Experiencing a loss in competition is a part of growth and undoubtedly he will/must learn from the experience and come back stronger, faster and better than before.
“Muhammed Ali has lost. Mike Tyson has lost. But both remained among some of the most feared fighters of the sport.”
“Continue to train, continue to prepare and we will continue to support you,” Lewis said.
