By Prince Dornu-Leiku Ghanaian boxer Samuel Kotey Neequaye takes to the ring again in the USA this Saturday October 27 with a chance to claim a first piece of silverware in America after easily winning his rookie fight in the States back on September 22 against Federico Flores Jnr.
The overwhelming unanimous decision victory back then was a statement by the boxer on his determination to get to the top.
Now the 29 year old Accra native’s quest to realise the childhood dream of becoming a world champion begins with a chance to claim the North America Boxing Association (NABA) Lightweight title come Saturday night.
Undefeated Neequaye, 18-0, 14 KOs, faces Mexican Pipino Cuevas Jr. at the Commerce Casino, Commerce, California, in a 10 round contest for the NABA belt.
