The former 2-time Commonwealth champion is just on that roadmap with the Universal Boxing Association (UBA) Super Middleweight title on the horizon next month but first Adamu must see off the challenge of local rival, George Amoo on the All For One Sports Promotions bill codenamed ‘Punch Time’ in Accra come this Saturday night.
“This fight is a preparation for Adamu because he is fighting for the UBA world title in Accra in January,” explained Abdul Mohammed Samadu, CEO of All For One Sports Promotions who also manages The Crusader.
“After he takes that title, it would be a big achievement but we will not rest at all because we are going for the top recognised world titles as well. He is preparing for a rematch against world number one, Carl Froch to show the whole world how good The Crusader is,” Mr. Samadu added.
In the event, the ‘Punch Time’ bill is the first of the year for All For One Sports Promotions who have lined up a total of 12 mouthwatering bouts to whet the appetite of boxing fans who will storm the City Engineers Yard at James Town for their own Christmas fight party.
“It’s going to a very exciting night of boxing because we have some of the best promising boxers and the very experienced Charles Adamu fighting. I can assure boxing fans that they will enjoy all 12, yes twelve bouts and I urge everybody to come,” said Matchmaker Abdul Rasheed Williams AKA Believer.
Headlining the bill on December 20 is the clash for the Ghana Super Bantamweight championship featuring Kamarudeen Boyefio versus Isaac Sackey over 12 rounds.
Aside the Adamu-Amoo fight, other Super Middleweight contests include Emmanuel Martey against Solo Adama, Francis Mensah versus Emmanuel Anim Adjei as well as the Middleweight contest between Kwesi Tutu and Ernest Amuzu.
