TOKYO 2020 - BOXING Brave Samuel Takyi grabs first Tokyo Olympics medal for Ghana



It was an action packed Ghana versus Colombia battle in the ring as Samuel Takyi took on his experienced opponent David Ceiber in Tokyo.


The inexperience of the West African showed early in the fight as he lost on every judge's scorecard in round one.


But Takyi bounced back with sheer guts and fierce determination to overhaul the deficit in the next two rounds on his way to a dogged win.


A huge performance and a spirited comeback by the 20 year old amateur fighter from Accra.


Takyi is assured of his first ever Games medal as he reaches the semifinals as his next bout at his very first Olympics.
