Prince George boxer Kenny Lally is figuring he’ll get a bit of a Pan-Am preview next week in Puerto Rico.
“I leave Monday for Puerto Rico,” the six-time Canadian champion said. “It’s a competition called the Cheo Aponte Cup, which has nine different countries in it.”
The countries are all among those who will be participating at the Pan American Games in Toronto in July, including Cuba, the United States, Venezuela and Brazil.
“It’s going to be a bit different,” Lally said. “We’re in San Juan, but we’re going to be fighting outside.”
He says he attended the same event a couple of years ago and came back with a silver medal.
“I don’t fight until Wednesday, so I’ll have some time Tuesday to get down to my fighting weight,” Lally said.
“I shouldn’t have those thirds and fourths at Easter, I guess.”
