WBO Number 1 ranked Bantamweight Duke Micah staying sharp in Brooklyn as he sets sights on World titles in 2019

WBO number 1 ranked Bantamweight Duke Micah is staying sharp, as he gets ready to contest for world honours in 2019.

The former Commonwealth and current WBC international Champion has linked up with Andre Rozier’s team in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn as he looks to make the adjustments that will ultimately land him a world title in 2019. 

The 2012 Olympian said, “I am completely focused on winning a World title in 2019. That is the goal and I am sure that I will make this a reality.

“I have a great team that includes my co-manager Michael Amoo-Bediako Sr and trainer Andre Rozier and with this support, I know that a world title awaits me in the very near future.”

Micah, now based out of Brooklyn, has been working alongside esteemed trainer Andre Rozier. Micah opened up about life under the watchful eye of New York’s Rozier.

The Ghanaian said, “Andre is a great man and a great trainer. He is really helping develop me as a fighter and he is helping me become a more well-rounded fighter. These changes will be the keys to making sure I become world champion.”

The bantamweight division is buzzing at the moment, with the World Boxing Super Series displaying some of the world’s best bantamweights on a massive platform. Micah gave his take on the Super Series and who he wants next.

The current WBC International Champion said, “I honestly will fight anyone. Many fighters say they will but they don’t mean it. I genuinely do mean it I will fight anyone. 

“People talk as if Naoya Inoue is unbeatable. He is a great fighter but I know I have the tools to beat him when the time is right.

“I would happily fight anyone in the WBSS as long as there is a world title up for grabs I don’t really care who is in front of me because I believe I will beat them all.”
