Mr. Samir Captan, WBO Representative in Africa has professed that the WBO Africa Featherweight Championship between John ‘Expensive Abaja’ Laryea (13-0) and Solomon Martey (15-1) is going to be a cracker.
The bout begins on Sunday, April 30, 2023, at the plush Dezone Beach Resort at Korle Gonno in Accra.
According to Captan, a former President of the Ghana Boxing Authority (GBA), the two pugilists are known to be durable and tested warriors who can thrill the fans.
He said the Featherweight division is where Ghana has produced champions and excelled at the world level, naming Roy Ankah, D.K. Poison Azumah Nelson, and recently Isaac Dogboe
“From their records, I can foresee a good fight, and I wish both boxers good luck. May the best win,” he said.
Samir Captan called for adequate security, discipline, and behavior from the fans.
Coach John Laryea, and Carl Lokko, said boxers from the Bronx Boxing Gym are very serious in whatever they do.
“We are experts at a good fight; we know the opponent will come up wildly, but we will handle him and prove that we are the best at the division now.”
He promised an entertaining night of classic boxing.
Coach Martey from the Seconds Out Gym said they are always ready to win the title.
Meanwhile, Mr. Sammy Amin Addo, CEO of Bronx Boxing Promotions, has assured the spicing of the boxing show with live musical performances by some of the best artists in Ghana.
