‘One Bullet’ Ansah Stops ‘One Time’ Quaye To Retain National Lightweight Title
National Lightweight Champion, Michael Ansah retained his belt when he stopped challenger, Sherrif Quaye aka One Time in 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 hooks caught Quaye was behind on the cards from round one.
Hard working Referee Erasmus Owoo did very well 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 own plan of a knock out as he predicted at the Presser and the weigh in.
