Video: “10 Most” Spotlights Boxer Nikki Bascome

January 25, 2016

The “10 Most Fascinating People of Bermuda 2015″ series continues today with the fifth video release featuring boxer Nikki Bascome.

Host Lisa Pickering introduces Mr Bascome by saying, “Professional boxer Nikki Bascome was orphaned at a young age and, although supported by his grandmother and godmother, his early teenage years were trying, to say the least. Looking for a way to channel his anger and frustrations, he took up boxing, which would forever change his life.

“Since turning pro in 2014, Nikki boasts an undefeated record of 4-0. Meeting him in person, you can’t really picture the soft-natured, polite, almost shy young man throwing a punch, let alone taking down his last opponent in two minutes and 33 seconds this past November.

“He’s setting the bar even higher in 2016, encapsulating what it means to get back up when life knocks you down.”

The video was produced by Lisa Pickering and Burnt House Productions and is sponsored by CellOne and the Bermuda Pharmacy Group, while Ms Pickering’s dress & accessories are by Atelerie.

We will continue to post their video releases here on Bernews over the coming days, and the “Most Fascinating Person of 2015″ will be revealed on Friday, January 29th. The entire program will be also be aired on CITV.

Bermuda has no shortage of interesting people, so if you want to suggest a candidate to Ms. Pickering for this year’s list, please feel free to email her at!
