Boxing: Obodai Sai’s camp still in shock . After a TKO in R5

By Kenneth O. ADADE, Accra
THE Technical team of Ghana’s defeated boxer, Obodai Sai, says they are still in shock and cannot give reasons for the humiliating defeat their boxer suffered in the hands of Namibia’s Walter Kautondokwa.
According them, they did everything humanly possible before and during the fight and yet Obodai was knocked out, especially after winning the second and third rounds.
Speaking in an interview with The Finder, the coach of the Ghanaian boxer, Akai Nettey, apologised to Ghanaians and the dignitaries that trooped to the Bukom Boxing Arena to support them.
He said as a sportsman, he knows defeats are inevitable, adding that they would, therefore, go back to the gym; right their wrongs and come back stronger to put smiles on the faces of Ghanaians.
On a possible rematch, coach Nettey said they would study the technical report first and later announce if they would call for a rematch.
The Namibian World Boxing Organisation (WBO) middleweight boxer, Walter Kautondokwa, proved too strong for his Ghanaian counterpart Obodai Sai as the 8th ranked boxer floored the 14th placed Ghanaian boxer in round 5 of their much-talked about WBO Middleweight World title eliminator last Friday.
The bout, which was dubbed ‘Xplosive Fight’ and put together by Lion Boxing Promotions began on an impressive note for the Ghanaian boxer who displayed some incredible boxing skills in the first two rounds.
Sai dominated the first rounds much to the happiness of the teeming boxing fans, which included former Sports Minister, Nii Lante Vanderpuije and Black Stars captain, Asamoah Gyan.
In the third round, the tall Namibian landed some hefty punches on the face of the ‘Miracle Worker’, who obviously could not conjure any miracle to save himself from his opponent.
The bout that many expected to last a bit long was, therefore, cut short after Kautondokwa landed a series of punches on the face of Obodai Sai, forcing the referee to bring the bout to a close.
By virtue of this victory, Kautondokwa successfully defended his WBO Africa middleweight belt and has also added the International Boxing Federation (IBF) Africa middleweight title to his collections.
The Namibian boxer now has an impressive record of 14 victories in 15 fights - 14 being knockouts.
