Wasiru stops Commey in 2 to retain Ghana super bantamweight title

Wasiru 'Gyata Bi' Mohammed retained his Ghana national super bantamweight title with a terrific round 2 KO of compatriot, Raymond 'Chorkor Banku' Commey at the Bukom Boxing Arena in Accra on Saturday night.

Young Mohammed surprised the sizeable crowd by dropping the experienced Commey with a powerful left hook barely 40 seconds into the second round, so powerful was the effect that Commey appeared to have lost consciousness momentarily, leaving referee Roger Barnor with no choice than to wave off the fight which was the main event of the E&J Promotions bill in the Ghanaian capital.

It ensured a first successful defence of the title he won back in May for the highly rated Mohammed who now improves to 11-0, 9 KOs.

"Its all down to hard work, we have been training very hard and this is the just reward for it. I therefore thank my managers, my coach and my entire team for their support," Wasiru Mohammed told Dornu's Corner at ringside.

"I am very happy, I'm excited but I wasn't surprised because this is Gyata Bi. He's a very explosive boxer, if you are not ready, don't get into the ring with him," added John Manfo, co-manager of Mohammed and co-founder of E&J Promotions.


In other fights on the undercard, Prince Oko Nartey extended the winning start to his career courtesy a round 5 technical knockout of Richard Ashong in a super middleweight bout. Nartey improved to 5-0, 4 KOs.

Another victor on the night was Michael Pappoe who inflicted the first career defeat on Success Tetteh, edging their close affair on split decision whilst  Eric Quarm got his professional career off to a winning start, earning a unanimous decision over  Ezekiel Annan.
