Ghana super flyweight champ Mohammed Aryeetey to fight Tanzanian in Dubai May 21

Young enterprising fighter, Mohammed Aryeetey, is expected to leave for Dubai tomorrow to take on Tanzania’s Msabaha Salum Msabaha in an eight-round flyweight contest at the Coca-Cola Arena on May 21.

The national flyweight champion, (7-0, 5 KOs), is looking forward to making a statement against Msabaha (10-2-1, 1 KOs) in his maiden fight outside Ghana.

In an interview with the Graphic Sports, Aryeetey said it was time for him to make a mark on the international stage.

He expects an emphatic win over the Tanzanian in order to stake a claim in the flyweight division.

“I will be fighting outside Ghana for the first time in my career and I can’t wait to take advantage of that to make a mark.

“I am going in for an emphatic win because I believe that is the only way to stake a claim in my division,” Aryeetey explained.

The fight bill is headlined by former American champions, Tevin Farmer and Mickey Bey, and promoted by Tevin Farmer Promotions, Mickey Bey & Bey Bros Promotions.

The undefeated Aryeetey will be making a return into the ring after knocking out Albert Commey in March. He made his pro debut two years ago.

Meanwhile, Aryeetey’s opponent, Msabaha, has been inactive in a year since earning a unanimous decision victory over Bato Tweve in May last year.
