ROCKY876 – JAMAICA’S FIRST EVER BOXING PARTY
With the resurgence of boxing in Jamaica and the success of the Contender series, it is little wonder that the concept of a boxing party would soon be designed. On Saturday, July 7 you can be the first to experience this one of a kind synergy at Rocky 876 at the Liguanea Club in New Kingston. Jamaica’s first ever boxing party will have patrons getting live action at ring side while bouncing to the beat and sipping on their favourite Wray & Nephew mix.
The producers of the Contender series decided to continue the fun and excitement of boxing as Jamaica’s 2011 Middleweight Contender, Ricardo “Surgeon” Smith takes on Derrick “Guts” Spencer (from the 2012 series) in the feature fight at Rocky876. Spencer fought runner up Contender, Ramel “Sub zero” Lewis in one of the most watched fights in the Contender series this season and should be in the best shape of his life to take on last year’s winner.
Contender Producer and Rocky876 promoter, Sanjay Ramanand explains the reason for the first ever boxing party: “When we looked at how the Contender was being received, we realized that there was a whole social component that was not being tapped into. People wanted to watch the boxing, but they also wanted to drink and dance and just enjoy themselves; so we thought why not mix the two concepts to create something that has never been done in Jamaica before”.
Wray and Nephew mixed drinks will flow non-stop as patrons enjoy the blow by blow action. The gates open at 8pm and there will be activity from start to finish. With four fights scheduled, the boxing action starts at 9pm with three amateur bouts before the main event. And at the stroke of midnight the dance party begins with music from Miami-based DJ, PalmerStylz, and local big shots: Foota Hype and ZJ Chrome. And the drinks and music will flow until 2am.
Non-stop music, non-stop fun, non-stop excitement all night long! The event caters to the needs of all people, those who like to party, those who love the sport and those who like to try new things. Both boxing fans and party goers can be a part of the one of a kind experience when Jamaica’s first ever Boxing Party kicks off on July 7.
