Elisha Obed Boxer Dies
We express our condolences on the passing of Bahamian boxer Everett “Elisha Obed” Ferguson who died on 28 June at 6 p.m. Mr. Ferguson won a Boxing championship for The Bahamas in Paris. In 1975 he captured the WBC Light Middleweight Title by defeating Miguel de Oliveira. He defended the title twice before losing the belt to Germany’s Eckhard Dagge in 1976. He has lived in relative obscurity since he formally quit boxing in 1998. He is the brother of photographer Franklyn Ferguson. They lost their mother just three months ago to the day of his death.
