Lambe set for new opponent
Andre Lambe will make his professional debut against Canadian Mat Hinchey after talks broke down with his scheduled opponent Jamie Quinn.
Lambe was set to face English journeyman Quinn on the Fight Night Champion undercard at Fairmont Southampton on January 18.
However, Lambe’s team were forced to look elsewhere when that contest fell through last week and subsequently matched their man against fellow debutant Hinchey, who has fought once as a professional in mixed martial arts, defeating Bryston Jardine by technical knockout in 2017.
Lambe, who won 11 of his 17 fights as an amateur, defeating Portuguese Bruno Couto by a split decision in his final bout at the Fairmont Southampton in November, will meet Hinchey in the super lightweight division.
Meanwhile, Michael Parsons, who is also making his professional debut on the undercard of Nikki Bascome’s super lightweight bout against Englishman Ryan Oliver, has also experienced a change of opponent.
Parsons, 40, was scheduled to fight English “trial horse” William Warburton but will now take on Canadian Daniel Roach, who lost to Lambe by a unanimous decision as an amateur at CedarBridge Academy two years ago.
The amateur card will feature several “Bermuda v Canada” bouts, with Lovintz Tota, of Controversy Gym, looking to improve his 3-0 record against Zaheer Insha; Adrian Roach, also of Controversy, taking on Hamzah Zarwa, Jaylon Roberts, of Forty Rego’s Gym, facing Michael Terre Sánchez, and Scott Brown meeting Ismail Mohammed.
Cyril Whitter, of Aries Fitness Centre, will fight Alex Navarro, who earned a controversial split-decision win over Parsons on points as an amateur at Cedarbridge in 2018. Navarro then lost on points by an unanimous decision to Lambe later that year.
All-Bermudian matchups will feature Zyaire Williams against Ngai Franklin, while Jordan DeShields will take on George Cook. There will also be a women’s fight featuring Bermuda’s Answer Styannes and Canadian Willow Morton.
