IBF Africa Boxing Roundup

Fred-Lawson-wins-IBF-AFrica-titleThe “IBF Continental Africa Welterweight King” and the 2008 “Beijing Olympic” Ghanaian marvelous Frederick Lawson has finally found a replacement for the Burkinabe boxer Patrice Sou Toke.

The man that Lawson should be watching closely is the “Georgian Strongman” George Ungiadze 22(10)-14(3)-0 and this time around they will fight for the vacant “IBF International Welterweight Crown in end of June 2013″.

Marvelous Frederick Lawson with a canning metaphor of cruelly disposing his opponents is known for his non-nonsense attitude and he box the way “Marvelous” Marvin Hagler did in the 80s. Lawson is cool and has a tendency to wink to his opponents when punishing them in the ring.

Frederick Lawson will go to the rumble with 20(19)-0-0 boxing record which makes his opponents tremble as he is yet to drop a fight. His mannerism of disposing his opponents is a clear-cut business and nobody ever stood his on slaughter except for one almost insane boxer who stood with him for a long distance and regreted it later after he was severed punished.

George Ungiadze, from Georgian Republic the country known for strongmen and beautiful ladies, want to change the record in Lawson’s boxing career. Ungiadze is completely the opposite of Lawson, tough, perspicacious and proud, Ungiadze has been handling his boxing enterprises very seriously.

Coming from one of the former Soviet Union’s Republics of “Georgia” the country of “Edward Shevaednadze”, Ungiadze’s demeanor with his opponents has been quite thorough! But, this time around he will meet the man who has knocked down all his opponents by 99.99% and the most celebrated “IBF Continental Africa Welterweight” champion.

When all is said and done and the judges have given their verdicts (would it go that far?)? The answer to this one billion dollars question will have to wait until the end of June, when the duo meet in the Ghanaian Capital City of Accra.

Alhaj Enusa Sally, the Managing Director of Enusa Company Limited and Lawson’s manager and promoter together with the US based trainer Joseph Awiningyo believes that nothing will prevent him to add the “IBF International Welterweight Crown” to the number of titles he already has.
