Mubarak wins Ghana middleweight title

One of the unbeatable middleweight Ghanaian boxers, Mubarak Abubakar (6fights, no defeat, 6victories, 3 KOs) had a tough time in dispatching another credible young middleweight boxer, Michael Darku (4fights,1defeat, 2wins) in their crucial and unpredictable national middleweight championship bout at the Idrowwhyt Event Centre at Akokofoto, Dansoman on the Cabic Boxing Promotions and Management fight bill Sunday December 26.

After both boxers exhibited credibility, durability and resilience in the earlier rounds, it became too close to call as to who was going to win.

It was Mubarak who landed some few effective punches and got his opponent dazed and wobbled at a point. But Darku showed so much resilience, especially in round 6 of the 12 rounder.

Mubarak in round 7 connected some deadly body shots that saw Darku gasping for breath and in round 8, referee Roger Barnor stopped the fight to save a suffering boxer from further punishment that could lead to irreparable injury.

Mubarak Abubakar was eventually decorated as the new national Middleweight Champion.

Congratulations Mubarak Abubakar
