Ghana’s Tokyo 2020 Olympic bronze medalist, Samuel Takyi, will step into the ring for his first professional fight on January 29.
Takyi who turns 21 on December 23 has signed a managerial and promotional contract with Bazooka Promotions, a syndicate owned by boxing legend Ike Quartey.
He told the media he was ready to kick-start his pro journey to become a future world champion.
“If everything goes as planned, I will make my professional debut in January under Ike Quartey. I am glad I made that choice because I believe he has what it takes to lead me to where I want to be in future,” said Takyi.
The former World Boxing Association (WBA) welterweight champion is expected to coach the ‘Ring Warrior’ and lead him to become a superstar.
Takyi said he was happy to be in the camp of the former world champion, and he was not looking back.
