UNITED STATES-based Jewel Lambert has once again beaten Faith Ramnath, winning their rematch of the controversial Trinidad and Tobago National Championship bout.
Lambert won a points decision when the women met for the second time on Saturday at the Pleasantville Indoor Regional Sporting Facility.
The show, a Pro-Am card, was a collaboration between Fine Line Fight Promotions and the Trinidad and Tobago Boxing Association and was touted as the “Spanish Invasion”, since the T&T boxers faced off against counterparts from Cuba and Venezuela.
Headlining the amateur events on the card was a much-anticipated showdown between local flyweight Ramnath and New York-based Lambert. After Lambert had unanimously out-pointed Ramnath at the national championships in 2019, Ramnath and her team, included boxing official Boxu Potts, cited discrepancies and campaigned for a box-off. However, at Pleasantville, Lambert was again a convincing 5-0 points winner over Ramnath.
