Ghana's medal hopeful in the ongoing first Africa Amateur Boxing Cup of Nations in Gabon, Frederick Lawson, has leaped to the medal zone of the Featherweight division after beating a Beninois opponent yesterday.

The win secures the young boxer the opportunity to fight for the gold medal in his weight division on Friday.
