Captain of the Black Bombers, Sulemanu Tetteh became the sixth Ghanaian to leave the Tokyo 2020 Olympics Games having lost 5-0 to Veitia Yosbany in the men’s flyweight division [Round of 16] at the Kokugikan Arena on Saturday.

Born in Sancti Spiritus, the Southpaw Cuban boxer who initially took up judo before switching to boxing, did not break any sweat in all the three rounds as Sulemanu Tetteh failed to neutralize him through the rounds.

Veitia Yosbany proved why he was named among the Ten Most Outstanding Athletes of the Year [2017] in Cuba by the National Institute for Sports, Physical Education and Recreation [INDER] and the Cuban Sports Chroniclers’ Circle as he virtually taught his Ghanaian opponent the basic rudiments in boxing as his coach kept shouting on him to press on.
