Dr. Carlton Crockwell, Chief Operating officer of Security Associates and sponsor of the One World Boxing Festival, joined the hundreds of fans at the National Sports Centre in celebrating the high calibre of boxing talent in Bermuda.

“Security Associates is thrilled to have been a part of this unique family sporting event that has definitely been a bright light on the season’s calendar,” Dr. Crcckwell said.
