The life of former national boxing champion, Leroy Isidore, will be remembered when Fine Line Factory stages Fight Night 22 Super Fight Classics, at the Regional Indoor Sporting Complex, Chaguanas on August 11. This was announced yesterday at a launch hosted at the Hasely Crawford Stadium.  Isidore died five years ago. He represented T&T in the Commonwealth Games in amateur boxing and at the World Kick Boxing Championships in 2005, where he captured a bronze medal. Isidore also captured a gold medal in the Last Man Standing event in Suriname as the smallest fighter at 126 pounds.
 
 
His younger brother Prince-Lee Isidore, whom he brought into the arena, will be among the fighters on the August 11 card. He will match fists with an opponent outside of the Caribbean who is yet to be named. The younger Isidore said he wanted to continue his brother’s legacy by doing well and his upcoming bout was a chance to do so. Prince-Lee said: “I don’t talk out side the ring, I talk inside the ring. I let all my training speak for it self. Anyone who has witnessed me fighting would surely say that is the reason why I am the best upcoming fighter. “It is  because of what they have seen in my previous fights. There have been a number of knockouts.” Also up for grabs on the night will be the national heavyweight kick-boxing title which will see Neil “Predator” Frederick taking on Kenneth “Iron Man” Bishop. 
 
 
The two are not strangers, having fought on two occasions at the amateur level with Frederick being victorious. The winner of this fight will receive $15,000 along with the national title belt while the loser will receive $10,000. Frederick said he was  confident of beating his opponent for a third time. “ I have beaten ‘Iron Man’ Bishop twice before, so am sure I would carry home the belt. However, it would not be a walk in the park. I don’t need to work or practise on any thing. I fought him twice but he has improved.  I hope to take him down in the second round,” said Frederick. In reply, Bishop said when they fought previously he was an amateur. “That was light contact but this is full contact.  “It will be a great difference. I am not saying I’ll knock him out in the first round, but I will knock him out. I’m a lot stronger than before and much wiser.”
