Ghana’s Patrick Allotey defended his WBO Africa super welterweight belt on Saturday night, beating Uganda’s Badru Lusambya at the Bukom Boxing Arena in Accra, Ghana.
Allotey won via 12-round unanimous decision – the score card read, 120-108, 120-109 and 120-109.
The result was a true reflection of what transpired on the night as the Chorkor-born boxer controlled the fight from round one to the twelfth round.
The card attracted important dignitaries such as ex-President John Mahama, former Sports Minister Nii Lante Vanderpuje, former Mayor of Accra Alfred Oko Vanderpuye and boxing legend Azumah Nelson.
Allotey wasn’t the only Ghanaian to raise the flag of the country high as Richard Harrison and Emmanuel Martey did same.
Harrison in his heavyweight battle stopped Burkina Faso’s Boniface Kabore in round two to win the vacant interim WBO Africa heavyweight title.
Martey claimed a technical decision win over Nigeria’s Sunday Ajuwa to win the vacant WBO Africa super middleweight belt.
The Ghanaian suffered an accidental headbutt forcing the bout to come to an end in round six. The score card read (49-46, 49-46 and 49-46).
