Ghana's George Ashie last Friday made a giant stride in his promising boxing career when he knocked out Tanzanian Alan Kamote in the sixth round of the main bout of the bill at the Accra Sports Stadium.
On the night dubbed ‘fist of fury ‘ Ashie was ruthless with his punches from the start of the bout to the finish, pounding his opponent into submission in the sixth round.
Kamote visited the canvass twice, in a one- sided fight which saw the Tanzanian in a defensive posture in all the rounds.
In the sixth round, Ashie unleashed a powerful right hook to the chin of Kamote, dropping him to the canvas .
The president of the Ghana Boxing Authority (GBA), Peter Zwennes, former world champions, Azumah Nelson and Ike Quartey presented the Interim WBA African Lightweight title to Ashie for his feat.
Ashie then declared his readiness to fight age-long foe Emmanuel “Game Boy” Tagoe, to a rematch, vowing to avenge the defeat he suffered at his hands two years ago,
Kamote had earlier requested a rematch insisting he was mentally and psychologically ill- prepared for the bout.
