Vintage Wins For Tetteh, Mohammed

Sulemana TettehThe Black Bombers duo of Sulemana Tetteh and Azumah Mohammed put up spirited displays to emerge victorious in their respective fights on the Dade Boxing Promotion Syndicate amateur boxing event held at the Prisons Canteen at Cantonments on Friday.

With other top notch fights including an all Reformers’ Musa Rahman Lawson versus John Coffie and Nii Ofoli Tetteh (Reformers) versus Fit Square gym’s Jerry Lartey called off in the last minute, the Bombers pair produced a wonderful display which kept fans chanting late into the night despite being an ordinary amateur contest.

Paired against Charles Amarteifio from the Wisdom gym in their bantamweight clash, Tetteh brought his experience to bear on the aggressive and hard hitting puncher who appeared to be in wonderland with Tetteh’s hand speed. Tetteh dictated the pace from the first round, connected fierce body shots that forced Amarteifio to drop his guard to cover his body.

But that exposed him to more troubles as Tetteh fires to the face with the Wisdom gym boxer doing the chasing all evening but lost on a unanimous decision.

In their welterweight clash, Azu-mah Mohammed had it a little tougher with Joseph Tagoe from the Seconds Out gym as both traded hefty punches in the first round.

Mohammed landed more shots in the second and third despite the many distractions as both sluggers attempted to use unorthodox means to undo the other. Mohammed was adjudged a 3-0 winner.

Akotoku gym’s Yusif Seidu recorded a 2-1 split decision victory over gym mate, William Attoh in the only flyweight contest of the evening with Alfred Quaye winning unanimously against Samuel Obeng in an all Akotoku juvenile clash.

Wisdom gym’s Ofotsu Solomon recorded the only stoppage on the evening with a second round demolition of Kanga Eman Dominic from Fit Square gym while Shaku Samir gaining a walkover win against Sheriff Quaye from the Black Panther gym.

Kweku Avorgah from the Panix gym was defeated 3-0 by Akotoku gym’s Stephen Quaye just as Ahmed Mohammed won by the same margin in his clash with Apalla Bona, all in the welterweight division.

In the light heavyweight, Moro Ahmed and Michael Asabila from C.Q.B.F were defeated 3-0 and 2-1 by Kojo Antwi from Akotoku gym and Anani Kutsoke from the Reformers and gym.
