Coming into the second round, Ansah with much experience of 38 fights and 23 wins under his belt was expected to turn the tides to his side or better still contain Derick Quaye.

But young hungry “Show Love” Quaye silenced his opposing fans by knocking out Michael Ansah, 1 minute and 23 seconds into the second half, as Referee, Roger Barnor stopped the fight.

Derick, after his glorious victory was asked what did the magic for him, where he said “I am preparing myself for  the world title so i have to beat the champions to become a champion. That is enough motivation to do my magic”.
