Azumah Nelson Fight Night – Round 5 ought to be called “The Battle of the Undefeateds.” From the opening bout to the main event, nearly every boxer on the card has yet to suffer a loss.
Fight fans have grown accustomed to shows featuring one main event and a series of drab undercard bouts. That won’t be the case this Saturday, December 9th at Bukom Boxing Arena in Accra. Nelson, in conjunction with promoter Hemann Promotions, has delivered a card that features compelling matchups from top to bottom.
“The goal is to return Ghana boxing back to its days of glory,” says promoter Heta Hema-Mann of Hemann Promotions. “Boxing has and will always be a part of the Ghana fabric. By presenting Azumah Nelson Fight Night to the masses, we’re accomplishing our goal of giving the nation the best fighting the best. Let the cream rise to the top. That’s what we set out to do.”
“Azumah Nelson Fight – Round 5 will thrill the fans,” added International Hall of Fame inductee Nelson. “I am proud to associate my name with this series and proud of the Ghanaian boxers who were willing to step up and put everything on the line to give us good matches.”
In the main event, Nigerian-born & Ghana resident Wahab Oluwaseun (15-0, 10 KO’s) will meet undefeated Ghanaian Bright “Checker” Ayala (14-0, 9 KO’s) for the vacant WBA Pan-African super featherweight title.
Undefeated super middleweight Emmanuel “Mayweather” Martey (12-0, 10 KO’s) squares off against Emmanuel “Horse Power” Anim (13-0, 10 KO’s) in a final eliminator for the National Commonwealth super middleweight belt.
Local rivals Kpakpo “Punisher” Allotey (11-0, 8 KO’s) and hard-hitting Robert “Stopper” Quaye (15-0, 12 KO’s) will finally settle their grudge match for the National super lightweight strap and final Commonwealth title eliminator.

Ajom, who is trained by the renowned Lawrence Carl Lokko, says he’s tired of the talk and promises to stop Osei-Bonsu in nine rounds when they face-off.
