    IN THE LIGHT-MIDDLEWEIGHT CLASS, GHANA'S PRINCE AMARTEY DISPLAYED FINE FOOTWORK AS HE HOOKED AND COUNTERPUNCHED HIS WAY TO A UNANIMOUS DECISION OVER MUDASHIRU HASSAN.

    THE MOST IMPRESSIVE PERFORMANCE OF THE MATCH WAS IN THE MIDDLEWEIGHT EVENT, WHEN GHANA'S COMMONWEALTH GAMES CHAMPION JOE DARKEY COMPLETELY OUTCLASSED SALISUF YUSUF, FLOORING HIM FOR A COUNT OF EIGHT IN THE FIRST ROUND BEFORE THE REFEREE STOPPED THE FIGHT.

    ANOTHER CONTEST THAT FAILED TO GO THE DISTANCE WAS THE HEAVYWEIGHT BOUT. IN THIS, ADONIS RAY, GHANA'S SILVER MEDAL WINNER IN KINGSTON, PUNISHED NIGERIAN WALTER OYATOKON SO BADLY IN THE FIRST TWO ROUNDS THAT OYATOKON FAILED TO ANSWER THE BELL FOR THE THIRD.
