Samuel Plange also excited the fans with a win over Enoch Annan.
In an amateur fight to spice the programe, Aminu Quarshie won over Eric Amersheko.
Derek Maceire who trained the referees and judges contributed much to the event by fixing the ropes on the ring and supporting the organisers to dismantle the big ring.
He said the event has revealed that the people lack entertainment and sporting activities.
He urged companies to back the promoter to organize bigger programs as they now have a ring.
Troy Robinson, the promoter noted that he was disappointed emotionally, morally, physically and mentally, expressing that the event cost him a lot.
He however expressed gratitude to the management of the Korle Beach Resort for supporting the free show programme, and some media orgnisations who gave some publicity notably; Peace fm, Hot fm, Radio Gold, Muntie fm, Radio Univers, modernghana.com, ghanaweb.com and GTV24.
