Dominican super lightweight contender Victor “El Marmelade” Cayo was back in his adopted homeland of St. Thomas, USVI today giving back to the community. Cayo will attend “Boxing In Paradise IV” on Saturday at the University of Virgin Islands Sports Center, home of Cayo’s fights in January and May of this year, and where he enjoys a large following, in part due to the island’s large Dominican population. This morning however, Cayo and Costa Rica’s Hanna Gabriel, who will co-headline tomorrow’s card, visited Bertha C. Boschulte Middle School in St. Thomas to speak at an assembly of faculty and students alike. The pep talk was aimed at especially the troubled students, focusing their attention toward staying out of trouble. Both Cayo and Gabriel cautioned students who are inclined to act with their fists, to do so in the ring and not the streets or school halls. Several of the students are already involved in the USVI amateur program.
