Nyantakyi-Nettey headlines first international bout in Ashanti Region July 5

THE SG-Mall in Kumasi is set to become the epicentre of boxing excitement on July 5, as it hosts the region’s first international boxing fiesta.

This landmark event, organised by the renowned Osebor Boxing Management and Promotions, will feature two high-stakes international title fights and showcase some of the nation’s brightest boxing talents.

The highlight of the evening will be the clash between Ashanti Pride and national featherweight champion, Stanley Nyantakyi, and seasoned veteran, Isaac Nettey.

Nyantakyi, who is also known as the ‘Ashanti Warrior,’ aims to claim his first international belt by winning the vacant Universal Boxing Organisation (UBO) African featherweight title. With a professional record of nine wins and one loss, the 23-year-old Nyantakyi is poised to make a significant mark on the international stage.

Another key bout will feature undefeated super-bantamweight contender, John Zile, who will vie for the vacant UBO African Super Bantamweight title. Zile, a 24-year-old with a record of 14 wins, two draws and no losses, will face off against the formidable Bukom-based Emmanuel Quartey, also known as Akufo Addo.
