Ghana’s Sena Agbeko recorded a second straight victory of 2017 with a round 3 technical knockout victory over Christian Bruffy Holmes on Saturday night in the US.
Agbeko only fought for the first time in three years in March and maintained his push to get to the very top with the resounding victory over Holmes who was so battered in the first two rounds he failed to answer the bell for round 3 at the Frank Cochran Centre, Meridian, Mississippi.
Young Agbeko by the victory, improved his near perfect career record to 17 wins, one defeat with 16 KOs to boot.
Now the Ghanaian, a graduate with first degree in journalism and public relations from the Ghana Institute of Journalism, eyes bigger prospects in chase of joining Ghana’s elite list of boxing world champions and believes he is on the right path to realising the dream.
“I want to thank my team for representing the red, gold, green of Ghana and for all the sacrifices, that’s why I got the TKO like I was supposed to,” Agbeko posted on social media few minutes after the victory.
“Thanks to everyone who wished me well. We’ll relish the little victories until we get the big ones. All glory belongs to God,” he added.
Now he has his next fight already confirmed for September and Sena is taking it all one step at a time.
“September 15th in Nashville is another date I have then we’ll go from there,” he told SportnetGhana.com exclusively.
“Winning the world title? No, not yet. I’m giving myself a couple more years. It’s not that easy to get there and right now I have no manager or promoter but we’re working towards it,” Agbeko said.
Isaac Dogboe defends WBO title against Argentina’s Echagaray in Accra July 22
Ghana’s Isaac ‘Royal Storm’ Dogboe (16-0, 10 KOs) returns for a first defence of his WBO International Super Bantamweight championship against also undefeated Claudio Fernando Echegaray of Argentina (17-0-1, 9 KOs) on July 22 at the Bukom Boxing Arena in Accra.
Dogboe won the title via a round 7 technical knockout of another Argentine, Julian Evaristo Aristule in Auckland, New Zealand back in December last year.
The 22 year old Ghanaian star, currently rated number 6 to the WBO world title held by Jessie Magdaleno was in the news as a possible opponent against the American but will have to now take on Echegaray in front of his own countrymen in July whilst waiting for his world title opportunity.
Dogboe, trained by his dad, Paul will be fighting for the first time at the Bukom Boxing Arena and has promised to put up a show for his large army of fans who show up for the bill codenamed ‘Battle of the Rising Stars’ put together by Rising Star Africa Promotions.
Other mouthwatering bouts are promised to feature on the undercard which will be announced in due course
