Obodai Sai set to mount the ring on June 16 against undefeated Namibian

Ghana’s middleweight world title hopeful Obodai Sai will mount the ring on June 16, 2017 in a fight against undefeated WBO African Champion Walter Kautondokwa. Dubbed ‘XPLOSIVE FIGHT NIGHT’, Sai is expected to entertain his fans at the Bukom Boxing Arena in a make-or-break fight, which could see him aim at a world title shot if he wins against Kautondokwa. The middleweight division is regarded as the hottest division in world boxing with exciting boxers such as Gennady Golovkin, Saul Canelo Alvarez, Billy Joe Saunders, David Lemieux, Daniel Jacobs, and Willie Monroe Jr. among others. Namibian Walter Kautondokwa and Obodai Sai from Ghana are the only two African boxers ranked 8th and 13th respectively in the division. Addressing the media, Obodai Sai stated that he was looking forward to the fight and remains focused on the challenge ahead of him. “I m happy my managers have arranged this fight, if you want to be a world champion you must take up challenges like this. “You can’t be champion without fighting the best boxers. Walter is good and that’s why I have stepped up my training. “Ghanaians will see the real Obodai Sai on June 16,” the former Commonwealth Light Middleweight Champion told the media. Meanwhile, the bankroller of Lions Boxing Promotions Victor Ahiakpor has described the fight as a real test for Obodai Sai. “We are in this game to produce champions. We are not interested in giving our boxers cheap fights to build their records. Some say it’s dangerous to fight the unbeaten Africa middleweight champion but we see it as a good test for our boxer. “We must give him fights like this to test his level of progress. This is the way to go for him to prove to us he is worth the investment.” On the bill will be some top local rivalry fights, which will whet the appetite of boxing fans. Lions Promotions is taking advantage to reach out to the corporate world for partnership to tap into the huge marketing platform this event offers. The Namibian has 14 wins from 14 fights with 13 of the wins by way of KOs while Sai has a record  32 wins,  2 defeats with 25 wins by KOs.
