WBO Africa featherweight champ, John Abaja Laryea also known as the ‘Expensive Boxer’ improved upon his almost perfect career record to 11-0-1, 9 KOs following a resounding round 7 TKO victory over compatriot, Michael Tagoe in their featherweight 10-rounder on Sunday afternoon at the Dezone Beach Resort, Korle Gonno, Accra.
The exciting fight night dubbed ‘Night of Great Talents’ was presented by Swavy Blu and Bronx Boxing Promotions.
Laryea who was inspired by his manager, Sammy Anim Addo, sitting in the ring exhibited swift Boxing and was really in command of the game with his accurate jabs and hooks.
His defense was so tight that Tagoe could not get through him, though he also bounced up and replied to some of the shots.
Abaja took instructions from coach Carl Lokko and did exactly what he was instructed. If there is any weapon that Laryea used, then it is his confidence.
Backed by most of the fans at the Dezone Beach Resort, he gave his best, and when Sammy Tagoe's corner decided to stop the contest after round 6. He could not report for round 7 putting Abaja on a new record for his knockouts.
