Undefeated bantamweight Duke Micah took part of a media workout at the famed Gleason’s Gym in Brooklyn Wednesday ahead of his bout Saturday night.
Ghana’s Micah, 23-0 (19 KOs), faces Puerto Rico’s Janiel Rivera (18-5-3, 11 KOs) at Brooklyn, New York’s Barclays Center.
The bout is part of a stacked show that features undefeated WBC World Middleweight Champion Jermall Charlo defending his belt versus top-contender Dennis Hogan in the main event. In the chief support, Chris Eubank Jr., son of British legend Chris Eubank Sr., will make his U.S. debut against the dangerous Matt Korobov.
This will be Micah’s second straight appearance on a Premier Boxing Champions (PBC) event. Last August, he stopped Luis Roy Suarez Cruz in two rounds at The Armory in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The brash boxer-puncher is predicting a similar outcome on Saturday night.
“I feel great. My training camp was flawless,” Micah said following his workout. “I can’t wait to prove to the world that I’m the best bantamweight in the world Saturday night.
“We trained hard. I’m going to show off my boxing skills and when the opportunity comes, I’m going for the finish and a spectacular knockout.”
Micah, a 2012 Olympian for Ghana, is eager to show his skills to the knowledgeable Big Apple crowd.
“Fans should expect a really good show from me,” he said. “That’s what the people came to see. People from Africa know me and I’m here to show the rest of the world what I can do.
“I work in training camp so that the fans can enjoy my fights. Everyone brings their own style and I have things that I can bring to the ring that are going to impress a lot of people. This is a chance to show it on the big stage.”
