King Of The Ring 3: Khan Captures WBC Silver Title As Nigeria’s Gbadamosi Makes History With ABU Title Win
  1. Monarch Events and Promotions brought their thrilling ‘King of the Ring’ series to the Bukom Boxing Arena in Accra, Ghana. The arena was buzzing with excitement as international boxers battled it out in a night of unforgettable matches. The highlight of the event was the World Boxing Council (WBC) Silver Super Flyweight Championship, which saw Tasif Khan, the reigning WBO Africa Super Flyweight champion from Bradford, England, win the coveted title.

In a stunning display of skill and power, Khan knocked out David Barreto of Venezuela in the second round of their scheduled twelve rounds bout. Barreto was dropped in the first round and was down twice in the second round before the Belgian referee, Brahim Ait Aadi, waved it off. WBC Vice President and President of the Africa Boxing Union (ABU), Houcine Houichi, was present to crown the new champion.

Another historic win came from Nigeria’s Adijat ‘Dija’ Gbadamosi, who became the first Nigerian woman to win an African boxing title. Gbadamosi, a 2018 youth Olympic Silver medalist, won a TKO victory over Zimbawean Soldier girl, Patience Mastara, in the fifth round of their scheduled ten rounds to win the Africa Super Bantamweight female title.

In the Light Heavyweight category, Nigeria’s Victor Beneth achieved a unanimous decision win against Ghana’s Moses Kwaku. The fight was adjudged the best bout of the night in a typical Nigeria versus Ghana affair. Manchester-based Ezra ‘Nigerian King’ Arenyeka won a first-round TKO against Philibert Sodjinou of Benin Republic in the Super Middleweight division. The bout was scheduled for eight rounds, and Arenyeka takes his unbeaten record to 11-0, 9KOs.

The undercard bouts involving Ghanaians were equally exciting. Isaac Commey won via TKO against Kofi Ansah Raymond in a Super Welterweight contest. Fosu Thompson got a KO win against Samuel Lartei Lartey in the Welterweight division, while Faisal Abubakari won by TKO against Enoch Lamptey in another Super Lightweight bout to stretch his unbeaten record to 14-0, 12 KOs.

The night was not just about boxing, as Super Star Ghanaian artiste, Stone Bwoy, gave an electrifying performance that had the fans asking for more. Nigerian acts; Jumabee, B-Tone, and Prince, also made their presence felt on the night of King of the Ring 3.

The previous two editions of the series were held in Lagos, Nigeria, and the next one is scheduled for South Africa. The King of the Ring 3 was yet another unforgettable night of boxing, showcasing the best of African and international talent.
