Michael Ansah

National Lightweight Champion, Michael Ansah retained his belt when he stopped challenger, Sherrif “One Time” Quayein the early hours of Sunday at the Bukom Boxing Arena in Accra.

Ansah, coming from the Charles Quartey Foundation Gym did not find his rhythm until the fifth round when his combination of hooks caught Quaye who was behind on the cards from round one.

This compiled Referee Erasmus Owoo to end the fight on realizing the Quaye was wobbling and could not stand on his feet after going down.

Some fans who besieged the ring thought ‘One Time’ coached by Carl Lokko of the Bronx Gym was doing well, but ‘One Bullet’ had his plan of a knockout as he predicted ahead of the fight.
