Akwasi Ofari Asare Remains positive about getting a medal at this year’s Olympics in Tokyo despite Shakul Samed’s loss. Samed lost during the second round when Malkan Bayram from Turkey defeated him. The head coach has assured Ghana that they are working hard to secure a medal.
Speaking during the interview Akwasi said, “Samed wanted to win the bout but unfortunately took a punch and the referee didn’t give him a chance for a comeback which is part of the rules of the game. We are not going to give up, we have two boxers still in contention, so we would work very hard to make a mark.”
