ALLOTEY WON’T CROSS FOUR – HAMISI MAYA
Ahead of their WBO Super Welterweight Title collision tomorrow, Tanzania’s Hamisi Maya is breathing fire. In an interview with Boxing Reporter, Prince Dornu Leiku of Dornu’s Corner fame, the seemingly soft-spoken but stern 24 year old pugilist did not mince words in predicting doom for his opponent, former world title challenger, Patrick Allotey.”There’s no way he ( Allotey) can go beyond round four”, Maya (13-3-0)declared through an interpreter.”There’s nothing he can do in the ring to escape my onslaught.
I’ll simply demolish him” The southpaw boxer hailing from Daresalaam further cautioned Ghanaians to prepare their hearts for an upset come fight night.” I’m not here as a tourist, I’m here for business”, he grunted.
When quizzed as to what his plan B would be in case the knockout eludes him, the lanky Maya, whose last fight outside his home country of Tanzania was a stoppage loss to Ivan Koslovzky in far away Russia, retorted that he doesn’t envisage Allotey crossing four rounds and therefore had no plan B.
Patrick Allotey(44-4-0) is returning to reclaim a title he once held and hopes to get back in contention for a World Title soon. All roads lead to the Idrowhyt Events Center in Dansoman, Accra for this epic showdown put together by the award-winning Cabic Boxing Promotions.
