Ghana’s Ebenezer Tetteh is the new WBO Africa junior heavyweight champion after scoring a second-round KO over Burkinabe Boniface Kabore on Saturday night at Unity Park in Achimota, Accra.
The 27-year-old Tetteh moves his record to an impressive 15-0 (12 KO’s). Kabore, 35, didn’t offer much resistance and was unable to capitalize on Tetteh’s glaring errors.
Tetteh scored two knockdowns in the first, quickly establishing his superiority. Another combination in the second put down a third time. This time, referee Adore Bertin called a halt to the action.
On the undercard, cruiserweight Michael “Ayittey Powers” Okine ended a two-year layoff with a second-round KO over the overmatched Eric Kwadey.
In a featherweight action, Ezekiel Annan won a unanimous points decision over John Oblitey Commey.
