UPCOMING OLYMPIC GAMES

T&T OLYMPIC TEAM TTO PARTNERS

FEMALE BOXERS Lorissa Rivas and Swedish world champion Mikaela Lauren scored convincing knock out victories and exchanged fighting words ahead of their showdown next month for Lauren’s World Boxing Council (WBC) super-welterweight title.
In what served as warm-up bouts for both Lauren and Rivas, at the Jean Pierre Complex Saturday night, the pair stopped their respective opponents.
Rivas (seven wins, three defeats), a US-based fighter with Trinidad and Tobago roots, sent Guyanese Sharon “Iron Jaw” Warde (eight wins, six defeats) to the canvas for the first time in Warde’s career.
Warde had to be attended to by the ringside doctor before she rose from the mat roughly three minutes after the knockout punch in the fifth round.
Rivas then crossed paths with Lauren, who was making her entrance to the ring for her bout against Colombia’s Celia Road Sierra. Rivas and Lauren exchanged barbs. In the main co-feature bout, the 39-year-old Lauren (24 wins, 3 defeats) sent a feisty Sierra to the canvas at 1.13 into the third round.
