Undefeated Duke Micah defeated Zambian Matthew Chanda (7-1, 2 KO’s) at York Hall in Bethnal Green in London last Saturday night to become the new Commonwealth bantamweight champion.

The Ghanaian (19-0, 17 KO’s) won a split decision over the UK-based boxer in a hotly contested slugfest in front of a packed crowd, according to reports.

The 25-year-old Micah relied on his superior reach and power punches to outclass his 30-year-old opponent.

The victory pushes the Ghanaian a step closer to achieving his ambition of winning a world title as he is currently ranked 15th by the World Boxing Organisation (WBO).
