I am ready for a rematch with Isaac Sackey- Wasiru Mohammed

Wasiru ‘Gyatabi’ Mohammed has finally being given the WBO Africa Super Bantamweight strap after defeating the then Champion Isaac Sackey by a technical knockout in October last month.

Undefeated Wasiru Mohammed now has an enviable record of  (11-0, 9 KOs). During the ceremony which was held at the Alisa Hotel located at North Ridge in Accra-Ghana yesterday, the now WBO Africa super Bantamweight champion expressed his willingness to grant his nemesis the chance for a rematch.

“I want to say this again, I am ready for a rematch if ever Isaac Sackey demands it. I don’t even care about the venue, I just want him to call for a rematch.” Wasiru told the media

The undefeated Africa champion stated his eagerness to end the fight much earlier than the previous encounter.

“I gave him (Isaac Sackey) a lot of respect in the other bout but the second time is going to be different because this time I'm going to finish him much quicker than the last time and without a shred of doubt.” Wasiru bullishly retorted.

The stage is set for another match-up should Sackey make-the-call but one thing is certain, the odds favour Wasiru for his skill, power punching, ring generalship and total completeness in his boxing artistry.

Indeed the last time the two boxers met, there was absolute chaos at the Bukom Boxing Arena when the referee from Benin, Adom Betin had to stopped the fight half-way in the third round after Wasiru floored the defending champion Isaac Sackey.
