Sensational Samuel Takyi put up a splendid performance to book a semi final place at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games on Sunday morning when he defeated

David Avila from Colombia in the Featherweight division.

The win gives Takyi an automatic medal in the competition, making it Ghana’s first medal at the Olympic since 1992 when the Black Meteors won a bronze medal in 1992.

It was an action packed Ghana versus Colombia battle in the ring as Samuel Takyi took on his experienced opponent.

The inexperience of the West African showed early in the fight as he lost on every judge’s scorecard in round one.

But Takyi bounced back with sheer guts and fierce determination to overhaul the deficit in the next two rounds on his way to a dogged win.

A huge performance and a spirited comeback by the 20 year old amateur fighter from Accra.
