The youngster narrowly lost his bout which could have seen him drawing nearer to the medal zone but insists his colleagues will make amends
Ghanaian Flyweight boxer Samuel Yaw Addo has expressed his disappointment after narrowly losing the round of 16 bout to in the ongoing Commonwealth Games at Birmingham, UK.
The 22-year-old was one of the highly-rated boxers to win a medal at the Games for Team Ghana but errors and points deductions ended his dream.
“I have lost but I think it’s all because I was fighting on a foreign land. The referee deducted some points from my accumulated ones which were unnecessary,” a dissatisfied Addo told AshesGyamera.com’s editor Evans Gyamera-Antwi in Birmingham, UK.
Amid his disappointment, Addo is optimistic that his colleagues will make him and the country proud.
“Despite my defeat and inability to progress to the medal zone, I believe Team Ghana can win at least four medals.
“Abdul Omar Wahib, Joshua Commey and the others have the potentials to win medals and they will do that especially in boxing. Ghanaians should pray for them,” he added.
Joseph Commey, Abraham Mensah and Abdul Omar Wahib have reached the quarterfinals stage in Boxing at 2022 Commonwealth Games on Featherweight, Bantamweight and Light Welterweight division respectively.
The trio will be in action again on Wednesday for a place in the semifinals which will guarantee them a medal.
