Ghanaian boxer Samuel Takyi is through to the quarterfinals of the ongoing Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.
The boxer is one win away from the medal zone after reaching the quarterfinals of the men’s 52-57 Kg Featherweight at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.
Takyi recovered from a slow start to beat his opponent from Ecuador Jean Carlos Caicedo by unanimous decision on Wednesday morning.
The 20-year-old won 5-0 as all five judges scored the bout in his favour.
He becomes the second Ghanaian boxer to advance to the next round after Black Bombers captain Sulemanu Tetteh claimed a slim victory on Monday.
Here is how Samuel Takyi clinched victory over Jean Carlos:
