Holy Dorgbetor Wins IBF Continental Title

Holy Dorgbetor put in a rock solid performance to clinch the IBF Continental Africa Super Featherweight championship on Saturday at the Bukom Boxing Arena, Accra.

 On a bill put together by four promotional outfits: Box Office, ACE Power, Twinstars and Aborigines Boxing Promotions, the Mepe born lad outclassed and overpowered Tanzanian slugger Hamadi Furahisha.

  The bill dubbed "Fists Of Carnage " drew a mammoth crowd to the venue. 

 Furahisha cruised into Accra from Dar- Es-Salaam during fight week vowing to destroy Dorgbetor. He predicted an upset and boldly declared that he was capturing the title to Tanzania.

 But proceedings in the ring told a different story. 

  Holy Dorgbetor, who seemed locked in right from the dressing room, left no doubts about his intentions right from the bell : launching a vicious double-fisted attack on his counterpart. He landed hard jabs and hooks which evidently instilled some fear into Furahisha whose initial temerity began to wane.

  The pattern was no different in the subsequent rounds; Furahisha tried to return fire - he was resilient, not ready to capitulate.

  But the undefeated former Ghana National featherweight champ exhibited a level of ferocity in his artistry that was both delectable and frightening. 

 Dorgbetor wasn't prepared to disappoint his vociferous home fans ; he was unrelenting in his onslaught - even increasing the tempo.

 By round seven, Furahisha had had enough and had no option but to succumb under the heavy precipitation of debilitating barrages.

  In the light of this victory, Holy Dorgbetor is the newly crowned IBF Continental Africa Featherweight champion. His tally improves to 11-0-1 with 7 knockouts.

 Dr. Adae Opoku Amoako of ACE Power Boxing Management And Promotions : handlers of the new champion hinted that they will be working on getting him on bills outside Africa. " Now that he's successfully conquered Ghana and Africa, we need to look for higher laurels and sterner stuff; possibly in the States or Europe ", he stated. “He should be ranked soon on the IBF continental ratings and challenge some of those there and if Holy delivers, we work on getting on the world rankings. At this point no favors, it’s all about show us what you got. “ He concluded. 

 Holy Dorgbetor aka " Jaw Breaker " is ranked #156 on Boxrec, this win should bring him to the top 100 on boxrec.
