Bermudian boxer Adrian Roach was recently featured in a six-minute Olympic video telling the story of his dream to represent Bermuda in the Tokyo Olympics – a dream crushed by the global COVID pandemic.
He recently returned to the island from Canada, where he is a sophomore college student, to fight on his home turf for the first time in two years.
Roach joins Bermuda’s top boxers for tonight’s Epic Entertainment Fight Night Champion at the Shed in Dockyard, to be streamed live on pay-per-view.
The young Bermudian boxer secured a maiden victory back in October 2021, competing for Crandall University in Nova Scotia, against Ranford Callao, of Alberta.
Roach defeated Callao in an unanimous points win, in a three-round welterweight bout at the Best Western Hotel Convention Centre.
Roach takes on Canadian Jack Cabotaje in a three-round welterweight bout on the under card tonight.
His amateur record currently stands at eight wins from 12 bouts.
Take a look at the video below entitled ‘Whither The Fates Carry Us (Prologue):

Both the short film and the documentary was produced by UK film director Tom Day (https://www.tomday.co.uk/) email@example.com, who also contacted Stephan Johnstone, of SJD World, just before Christmas.
The director wanted to use one of Stephan’s Spoken Word/Bermudian Poems in the video production.
His last album entitled Librago, was released in 2011.
“But the poem in this film was a remake from off of my Script Keeper album which was released in April 2009,” said Mr Johnstone.
“Big thanks to Tom Day and Adrian Roach for including me in their film,” he added.
