Papa Godett Trophy

May 2024

The boxing competitions for the Wilson “Papa” Godett trophy on Thursday night, May 30, were a great success.
A large number of people could enjoy 2 demonstration bouts and 3 official bouts for free.

The exhibition bouts were between Nahdir Haseth (Supreme Boxing Centre) and Claude Auguste (Supreme Boxing Centre), and Curtley Bernadina (Supreme Boxing Centre) and Manuel Pinheiro (Kapap Center).
The following results were obtained during the official competitions.
Ilai Lie (Baas Sports) won Dyhzion De Jonker (Pro-Fit)
Dario Montiel (Supreme Boxing Centre) won Tahier Wilson (Kapap Center) and the Papa Godett trophy.
Shawn Pryce (Baas Sports) won Jady Gogulski (Pro-Fit)
The bouts were all very even, so there were no losers.

The big winner was the large number of spectators present, because they could enjoy very spectacular fights for free in a good atmosphere.
