Malaysia based kickboxer Gerald Dah lands in Kuala Lumpur for Friday’s fight

Malaysia based multi decorated Ghanaian kickboxer, Gerald Dah is in high spirits ahead of his latest fight this Friday after safely landing in Kuala Lumpur for the clash against home favourite, Asira Faidaeng on the Super Muay Malaysia championship.

Dah had the opponent changed at the last minute, barely two weeks to the clash at the Kompleks Sukan Panasonic Shah Alam on September 16, but that has not affected the focus of the Ghanaian as he chases another victory in the ring.

“First of all I give thanks to God for every opportunity that he has given me to make my life meaningful,” Dah told Dornu’s Corner on Facebook.

“Preparations has been amazing, everyday training, repeating the same thing with my coach Melvin Liew of Sarawak aimed at making me perfect and stronger. September is a blessed month for me , I’m doing my home work, staying focused and have sharpened the tools. I’m a million percent ready for this,” he added confidently.

Despite the short notice of change of opponent, having been preparing for nearly two months for a match-up against Kendall Karakurt of Turkey before events meant he had to be replaced by Faidaeng, Dah remains adamant nothing is stopping him come Friday night.

“My opponent is a good fighter as well, we both once fought on the same show in Hong Kong. We are not that much close, but he is a nice person. But obviously I’m not going to be nice with him when we meet in the ring, I’m going to punish him very well,” Gerald Dah said.

“Thanks to KMC (Kelantan Muay Thai Channel) for letting me being the part of the team family especially Mr. Zakiyama. Thanks to Super Muay Malaysia and the promoter Mr. Kual Loon for inviting me to his show. There’s more to come next year,” the Ghanaian added so much gratification.

Finally, notwithstanding the fact of being away from home for such a long time, the Ghanaian fighter retains and appreciates the support of his countrymen and reserved some words in their honour.

“I want to assure all my fans in the world, here in Malaysia and Ghana that I will go into this fight as I always do, with all my heart and by the grace of God victory shall come. I thank you all for your support and prayers all the time. May God bless you always,” he said.

“I’m also pleading with the Ghanaian kickboxing commumity and especially sports journalists to remember my name in the next SWAG Awards, it will really be appreciated. All my kickboxers friends in Ghana keep working hard and don’t give up. Keep your dreams alive,” Dah added.
