Lightweight contender, Victor Kuwornu, says he is ready to prove a point on December 30 when he takes on undefeated Samuel Takyi for the national lightweight at the Bukom Boxing Arena.
Kuwornu warned the Olympic bronze medalist to be adequately prepared for a tough challenge when they go head-to-head for the national title.
The 30-year-old boxer is making his second attempt at the national title, having lost to Richard Fenyi in April on his first attempt.
Kuwornu believes his second attempt at the belt would be much better as he looks to upstage favourite Takyi on the night.
“I am going into this fight to prove a point after my first defeat some months ago,” Kuwornu told the Graphic Sports.
“It is going to be a great fight and I am confident that I can make him pay for his mistakes at the end of their bout.
“He has to be ready for the bout or I will punish him if he takes it for granted. Takyi must prepare adequately for he wants to get something from this fight.”
Meanwhile, Takyi (3-0, 3 KOs) has been in a training camp preparing to become the national lightweight champion before the year ends.
The 21-year-old told this paper that he wants to prove himself with an emphatic victory over Kuwornu by going the full distance with his opponent.
“I want to go the distance with him just to prove a point that I am ready to challenge for the championship when the time comes,” Takyi assured.
