Stanley Nyantekye presents LBO belt to Asantehene, receives blessings for mega fight show in Kumasi in May

Recently crowned LBO featherweight champion, Stanley ‘Ashanti Warrior’ Nyantekye has presented the new belt to the Asantehene, Otumfuor Osei Tutu II and also received the blessings of the overlord of the Ashanti people in pursuit of his world title dreams, beginning with a mega fight night in Kumasi in May.

Young Nyantekye (8-1, 8 KOs) annexed the Lion Boxing Organisation belt on February 3 courtesy a dominant round 4 stoppage of Komlangan Hounkpatin of Togo in Accra and immediately declared his aim to win a world championship belt for the Ashanti king.

“I’m very excited with this victory and the LBO title makes it even sweeter. I dedicate this title to the Asantehene and all Ashantis,” 22 year old Nyantekye said.

“Now I have to focus on the ultimate target to be a world champion for my king Nana Otumfuor Osei Tutu. Others have done well in the past but I will be the first to win a world title for the Ashanti kingdom,” he pledged.

Fast forward a week and Nyantekye and his entire team led by his manager, Gordon Frimpong AKA Osebor and trainer, Lawrence Carl Lokko along with other boxers of the stable including John ‘Monster’ Zile who fights for the LBO super bantamweight belt in Accra this Saturday.

Osebor Boxing Management and Promotions which’s first fight show was the February 3 event at the Royal Dede Golden Beach Resort in Korle-Gonno, will also stage this upcoming weekend’s fight night at the Awudome Park, also in Accra.

But their biggest show of all has been pencilled down for the Ashanti Region capital, Kumasi in late May, which’s approval, support and blessings they received from the Asantehene before heading back to Accra.

“Yes we are hoping to celebrate Stanley (Nyantekye) in a big way by hosting our first show in Kumasi just around his birthday in May and we are delighted to get the support and blessings of Otumfuor. We are very grateful,” Gordon Frimpong AKA Osebor, CEO of Osebor Promotions told Dornu’s Corner.

“We want to bring boxing to Kumasi in a big way, we want more boxers to emerge from Kumasi. This is just the beginning and we hope to make it bigger and consistent moving forward,” Mr. Frimpong concluded.
