Ghana's Elvis Ahorgah was stopped by Hassan Mwakinyo of Tanzania in the 7th Round of his quest to annex the WBO Africa Middleweight Championship in Zanzibar.

The fight, which took place at the Amaan Stadium in Zanzibar, was billed as “Mtata Mtatuzi” (The Problem Solver). Mwakinyo lived up to the billing, putting Ahorgah down twice in the seventh round before the referee stepped in to stop the contest.

Hassan Mwakinyo was very good on the day and deserved to win the exciting bout which was officiated by Ghanaian referee May Mensah Akakpo.

Ahorgah comes from the Fit Square Gym handled by Coach Lartey.

President of WBO Africa, Samir Captan who is also a Ghanaian presented the title belt to the winner.

He said winning the WBO Africa title is an opportunity to be ranked among the best in the world and congratulated the new champion.

Ghana boasts of some WBO Africa champions like Lightweight Sheriff Quaye, Featherweight John Laryea, and Super Welterweight Jacob Tetteh all from the Bronx Boxing Gym and Osman Haruna now with the James Town Gym.
