Ghana's Benjamin "Wonder" Tackie last night defeated 333 ranked, 25 years old Pueto Rican Edwin Algarin at the Club Cinema, Pompano Beach, Floroda, USA.

All three judges scored 77-75/77-75/79-73 unanimously in favour of Wonder Tackie who looked more refined and aggressive under new trainer David John Jackson.

The southpaw Algrin's impressions were not enough to tame the Wonder.

The fight which was telecast live on ESPN2 was Wonder's second straight win after defeating Jonathan Nelson in December, 2004.

All hopes were lost when the Ghanain Wonder lost to Ricky Hatton and Kostya Tszyu but the Wonder is gradually warming himself back.
