Kenya’s southpaw heavyweight Morris Okolla is set to meet former WBO Africa heavyweight champion Ebenezer Tetteh of Ghana on August 10th at Bukom Boxing Arena in Accra, Ghana.
The 37-year-old Okolla will be facing the hard-hitting Ghanaian pugilist who beat Burkinabe Boniface Kabore in 2017 to win the WBO Africa heavyweight title.
The fight was previously scheduled for August 3 but pushed to two days later, August 10 after Tetteh suffered a left hand injury during sparring.
Okolla also known as ‘Hercules’ by his fans is making a second entry into the ring after his defeat to Richard Harrison Lartey in December last year for the WBO Africa heavyweight title.
Ahead of the August clash, Okolla is bullish of a good show.
“I will be travelling with coach Olando on August 6 and I am confident of a win in Ghana since I have studied my opponents fighting style and mastered a way to handle him in the ring,” he charged.
