World rated bantamweight Duke Micah has announced he will be co-managed by long term manager Michael Amoo-Bediako Snr, the mastermind behind the rise of Richard Commey, alongside New York-based boxing mainstay Keith Connolly.
Ghanaian Micah is undefeated in the professional ranks, with 18 of his 22 wins coming inside the scheduled distance. The former Commonwealth, WBO Africa and WBC International Champion now looks to set his sights on a world title clash and the big punching African opened up about his career going forward.
Bronx based Micah said, “Firstly I must thank God for giving me the opportunity to showcase my skills in America and I am blessed to be managed by both Michael Amoo-Bediako Snr and Keith Connolly.
“I want to be a world champion and I believe I am going to become a world champion. I have an amazing team around me including my trainer Andre Rozier and the Havoc team, so I have everything in place to become a world champion. It is up to me now to put the work in to make sure nobody can beat me in the ring.”
Amoo-Bediako Snr and Connolly have also agreed a deal that will also see Micah showcase his talents on PBC for the foreseeable future, and co-manager Amoo-Bediako Snr weighed in on Micah and his link-up with PBC.
The British based manager said, “I am delighted that myself and Keith have managed to work out a deal for Duke to fight on PBC shows and we would like to thank everyone at Haymon Boxing for giving Duke the opportunity.
“Duke will return late August or early September and this is something we will confirm shortly. He is an all-action fighter and he is never in bad fights, so I expect the American fight fans to take to him quickly and this will only help in the push towards a world title, which myself, Keith and Andre Rozier all believe Duke has the potential to win at both super flyweight and bantamweight.”
