Two West African boxers – Peter Ato Ricketts [Ghanaian] and John Koudeha [Togolese] will be testing their pulse on Saturday, May 26 at the Seagulls Rugby Club [Tweed Heads], New South Wales as they come up against Reagan Dessaix and Kerr Foley both from Australia.

Ato Ricketts [17-2, 11KOs] will face Reagan ‘The President’ Dessaix for the vacant IBF International light heavyweight title whiles John Koudeha [11-0, 10 KOs] come face-to-face with Kerry James Foley.

Despite delays about the release of his visa the Togolese [John Koudeha] claims he’s sure of taking his record to 12-0 should the fight happen as scheduled:

“As a matter of fact, I’m still optimistic as I have always been as a boxer even though the process is a little getting on me. But if eventually the fight happens, it’s going to be a 12-0 for me. I’m certain of victory.”

“We will make a great fight but I will show him what African Mike Tyson is made of. I don’t really have a long section of training camp, but my fitness is always guaranteed so with my little preparation I am ready,” he adds.

Meanwhile, Chief Executive Officer of the Aborigines Boxing Promotions [Mitch Woolams] and the manager of Koudeha is of full conviction that his boxer will come out victorious.

“John is always ready, he is a boxer who we believe needs an opportunity to announce his true potential to the world. We have no doubt that he’ll win this fight and go on to win the world title within a short time,” Woolams said.
