Williams loses IBO International Featherweight title

Ghana based Nigerian boxer, Felix Williams was declared loser on points in the United Kingdom (UK), when he failed to defend his title against Josh Wale.

The officials scored with a majority decision of 95-95, 97-93 and 99-91 in favour of Josh Wale in Sheffield in the United Kingdom, last Friday.

His manager, Mr. Mike Annan of Don’s Promotions who was not enthused with the results said he would protest the results as he felt his boxer did very well to retain his title.

Coach Eben Adjei, one of the young enterprising coaches in Ghana who operates the Black Panthers Gym at James Town also believe the champion, Williams should have gotten the verdict, and promised they would come back better and stronger next time.
