Former IBF welterweight world champion Ike Quartey has revealed that his boxer, Samuel Takyi will engage in a national title in Kumasi later in the year.

Samuel Takyi knocked out journeyman Kamaldeen Boyefio in the second round of their six round lightweight bout a few weeks ago.

According to him, the Olympic bronze medalist will engage in a fight in July before taking on another boxer in Kumasi.

“If you see the way he fought, I believe he is ripe for the national title after a second bout and I believe that should happen in Kumasi,” Ike Quartey, CEO of Bazooka Promotions, told Graphic Sports.

“I am very impressed with how he fought, he dismantled the guy, you all saw it, he will fight again in either June or July,” he added.

Ike Quartey revealed that the young boxer has the potential of becoming a world champion and thus Ghanaians should throw their weight behind him.

“Takyi is a good boxer and he has a great future, he will win a world title, I have what it takes to make him a world champion.”

Samuel Takyi became the fourth Ghanaian in boxing history to win a medal at the Olympic Games.
