Carl Lokko coaches German to round one KO win

Carl-Lokko-and-Kiwitt3Lawrence Carl Lokko’s ever-expanding boxing credentials rose again after the Ghanaian boxing trainer led Liberian-born, German super welterweight Freddy Kiwitt to a first round knockout over Belarus’ Andrei Dolhozhyieu last Saturday at the Inselparkhalle in Hamburg, Germany.

Coach Lokko, who also trains highly-rated Ghanaian lightweight Richard Commey, worked Kiwitt’s camp and corner—his influence was evident.

25-year-old Kiwitt, who is based in the U.K., proved too strong for Dolhozhyieu, finishing him off with a vicious right at 2:59 of the first to improve his burgeoning record to 8-0 (3 KO’s) and leaving even his new coach in awe.

“I’ve been training him for a few weeks now and he is so happy to be train by me,” Lokko shared with Bukomboxingnews.com. “I like his attitude and I believe he will go far.”

Coach Lokko, who is due to return to Ghana on Wednesday to prepare some of his locally based boxers for upcoming fights, has also been training half-Nigerian heavyweight Ishmael “Biggy” Oladipo who spars with former world heavyweight champion David Haye.
