The two African AIBA Road to London members born in 1991, went on the attack but it was Micah who stole the show as he claimed the victory at the at South Arena 2 of the Excel Exhibition Centre in London.
Micah’s win comes as great news and relief to Ghanaians after his team captain, Maxwell Amponsah and Teammate, Isaac Dogbe were axed out of the competition leaving him and Sulemanu Tetteh who was billed for yesterday evening as Ghana’s only hope in boxing.
Per the above results, the young boxing sensation will now face Colan Michael from Ireland on Friday August 3, 2012 at the same venue.
In a chat with the General Secretary of the Ghana Amateur Boxing Federation (GABF), Dominic Kankam, after the fight he said Duke Micah has dedicated his victory to the late President of Ghana, H.E J.E.A Mills.
He explained that Micah was poised to do something to bring smiles back on the faces of his fellow countrymen after the untimely death of the President and the axing of his two colleagues.
Kankam added that the 20 year old boxer in now determined more than to win his next Friday and called on all Ghanaians to rally behind him since a win on Friday will place him in the medal zone.
