  • Description

    John Mensah of Togo, the West African Bantamweight boxing Champion, beat Abraham Quarshie of Ghana in a points decision after a ten-round contest in Takoradi, Ghana, on Friday (9 May).

    There were no surprises during the fight, which saw the Togolese boxer dancing around the ring and teasing his opponent rather like the World Heavyweight Champion, Muhammad Ali. At times he even stopped punching and appealed to the crowd for cheers.

    Mensah, who had stepped up his training sessions just a few days before the fight, appeared the fitter boxer throughout.
