Ghana’s sole medalist at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, Samuel Takyi started his professional debut on a flying note after upsetting Kamarudeen Boyefio.

The 21-year-old made light work of Boyefio by knocking him out in the second round.

Boyefio had already gone down thrice in the first round in their 12-round bout at the Ga Mashie Hall of the Bukom Square Boxing Arena.

The stoppage of the bout in the second round did not go down well with Boyefio and his camp as they claimed he was still strong to fight after series of unrelenting hefty blows from Samuel Takyi.

This infuriated Boyefio, who did not wait for the declaration of Samuel Takyi as the winner, thereby walking out of the ring to the dressing room.

Takyi after the fight assured his fans of more victory in the coming years.


Takyi became the first Ghanaian to win a medal at the Olympics in three decades, after grabbing a bronze at the Tokyo Olympics Games.
