Fireworks At Lebanon House Tonight

Former Gym mates Malik ‘Bukom Snake’ Jabir and young George Ashie, both Bukom breeds, will this evening cross swords for the national lightweight title at the Lebanon House, Accra. Veteran Jabir, noted for his tough-talking revealed in a telephone interview that “I don’t think he will travel the full distance. I will deal with him to the extent that recognizing him after the bout would be difficult.” His opponent, 24-year-old Ashie, nicknamed ‘Red Tiger’, in response pointed out that he will rely on his youthful exuberance to stop his braggart opponent in the early rounds. The combatants, in the past have captured the hearts of lovers of the sport with their antics, with one emerging as the national featherweight champion (Malik) and the other standing out in the Mortein/Men Only bouts (Ashie). On the same bill, arranged by Box Office Promotions, Classic Vision Boxing Syndicate in collaboration with New York-based Gunther Fishgold’s Capital City, will also feature Laatekwei Hammond and Sunday King Hammer in a bout for the national middleweight title, with Raymond Commey and Isaac Nettey battling for the national super-bantamweight title.
