The DiBella Entertainment's junior middleweight star who scored a sensational first round knockout over Marco Antonio Rubio on the De La Hoya-Hopkins undercard during his previous fight at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas made it known to Mr. CNN of Ghanaweb recently during a phone conversation.

Mr. CNN congratulated him on his victory and making Ghanaians proud. He asked Kofi how it took 33 seconds to knockout Marco in the first round? Kofi stated that there were a lot of rumours going on about Marco Antonio Rubio on how good and unbeatable he was, and he made sure that those rumours became his strength and defeat Marco; hence the early knockout.

Mr. CNN suggested to Kofi and his award-winning promoter, Dibella Entertainment to secure his championship fight in New York so Ghanaians would come in numbers to show support. Kofi told Mr. CNN that the Ghanaian-audience always have a presence because of the traditional wear, drum beats and the songs which also entertains the entire crowd watching the fight and also serves as a motivation for the boxer to win the fight.

Kofi thanked Ghanaians for their support and prayers. He is confident, upbeat and craving for a title matchup against any champion, Winky Wright (WBC, WBA), Vernon Phillips (IBF), and Daniel Santos (WBO). He assured Ghanaians that he would not let us down.
