the Lord Of The Ring

the L.O.T.R.

Wale‘s Ambition boomed through the speakers.

The feeling was all gee.

The night was crisp; it wasn’t chilling, it was just perfect!

Two prison’s officers, all geared up, dark shades on, buff [you knew they weren’t to mess with] led the pack. A pack of hungry wolves? Neh!

T’was the winning team!

This really cool looking pack, all fresh and macho, adorned in yellow t-shirts, repping hard for Best Bargain GH, who in turn affiliated and repped even harder for the ring master and Lord, towards his mighty throne.

A true Lord, the yellow surrounded and cleared the way for him as only a king should enjoy. Reaching the ring, the ropes were pulled down for as he made his way into the his ring.

The announcer did his job, the ref did his job, the king and his slave agreed to be fair to each other in their display of sportsmanship, strength and agility, the power dynamics were set in motion and it was on!

Blue corner the king, the other corner Daniel “Sunday King Hammer”Adjei Sowah!

Ring goes the bell. The king only knows victory, and victory is what he had come for. But oh ho! This tool [hammer] had no intentions of going down easy. Sheer perfection!

He jabbed, threw his fist, a left, a right, a combo, punched, all in hopes he might faze the king so as to leave an opening to guarantee his name is etched in history as the privileged one to have clobbered and hammered the king.

Wickedly he jabbed, he was furious, vicious, did he have a personal vendetta against the king? I can’t tell; but boy did he try.

Try, yes he did!

Dude! Are you gonna throw a proper punch or what?

Only thing wrong? He was simply fodder for the Lord of the Ring. The Lord after all did say, “I will never stand and trade punches with my opponent in the ring but I will beat him”.

The king must have gotten bored with the insects charade. A quick lesson or two on how punches are thrown later, SKH wished he hadn’t enrolled in LOTR school for Winners.

A left, a right, a combo, no one could tell which was which, whether that was a right or left hook. Wait what was that? It was so fast, I could swear he punched with both hands.

The combos were unceasing and relentless; if christians could only learn to pray this way.

Not so tough anymore the slave, lesson upon lesson on modesty the Lord taught.

But no, the other corner wanted to prove he knew better and acted stubborn.

Left, right, left hook and his entire anatomy was on the floor; how he didn’t convulse and pass out, beyond me.

People just don’t learn. He actually fancied a comeback chance with the Lord; the impunity!The clock was ticking, it was nearing the sound of the bell, break time was nigh upon us; well mostly upon SKH. 

The Sunday King Hammer had become the anvil, clobbered down by none other than a king. o_O

The ten second countdown had begun…

Meanwhile, on the birdwatch network, Lord Aqeel had earlier chirped tweeted he would end his lesson in the third round.

Back to the countdown: 10, 9 … the lesson finally set in.

Sena Aqeel “Lord of the Ring” Agbeko had within the first round and rather effortlessly, continued his streak to fifteen (15), wins all by KOs.

Victory Squad

Is there a match for the L.O.T.R.?

As one lover (no, not that kind) of the Lord puts it, the fight was so quick, the cameras ( mind you there were about four) were unable to capture it. Xoxo.

The team was estatic. His team, crew, support, family, pack, procession stormed his ring to hail their champ, it was all pride and glory as always for the “Lord of the Ring”!

PS: his original opponent from Nigeria (omo Naija, what dey happen now? Everything correct?) chickened out. His fight almost didn’t come on as no other middleweight fighters were willing unafraid enough to challenge him. Just a side note. 🙂

This and Not This

Pound for pound is how it went down last night at the Accra Sports Stadium as 7 bouts went down.

Ok truth be told, just about 5 were power and action packed. The other 2 were just, bleh…

Anyway, Joseph King Kong Agbeko defended his IBO Bantamweight title last night against Luiz Mendelez from Columbia. Was it fun? Yup!

Chale, from what I heard by way of mouth and from the little googling I did on K. Kong’s opponent, I bet K. Kong expected the fight to be a walk in the park; it was not!

For a moment there I thought he would actually lose! Like really!

The consensus I gathered that night was that, K. Kong won mostly because he had more stamina. But damn, Mendelez was tough! And very confident too. Can you imagine fighting someone on his own turf with but a handful of people behind you?

So hurray, Ghana ,through K. Kong retained her championship. Good!

I thought he would actually lose! Like really!

I thought he would actually lose! Like really!

Now on to the bad.

Disorganization be what?! Herh?

So along with #teamaqeel , I arrived at the stadium pretty early, like around 7. Stuff was still being set up chale.

At least when everything punched off, the ringside was pretty much star studded, and of course, star packed! The popular stands were also vibing with “jama” which I’m not so sure could possibly motivate anyone. Oh well..

So yeah, big ups to Fresh Kings Promotions (Entertainers), OMP and all who made this happen.

Some smart alec decided it was ok to place both projectors meant to serve the fnas in the popular stands on only one side of the pitch. Well at least someone fixed that.

It wasn’t after the second bout that they begun to change the postion of one of the projected screens to benefit fans on the other side of the stadium, which ironically, had more people.

Fight was scheduled to start at 9, don’t even ask when it kicked off.

A (if you may) rooster was prepared, clearly stating the order in which the fights would occur. Followed through on the first three bouts, the rest, let’s just say I highly doubted all the fights would come on.

K. Kong’s fight was scheduled to be last, the crowning fight, the highlight. My reasoning tells me this is to give the other boxers billed to fight their own spotlight as well; all in brotherly sportsmanship love.

Didn’t happen.

Luckily, we got to see Manyo Plange, one of the featured boxers fight before K.Kong. That dude is viscious! Of course he won; I think by T.K.O.!

This is the “Columbiano” O_O

This is the “Columbiano” O_O

Then on came K. Kong. I wouldn’t speak on him because all the headlines are abuzz with him anyway. But chale, that “Columbiano” was persistent! Oh did I mention Samini sang our national anthem?

Anything special about it? Nope!! I was hoping for some sort of rendition, but oh well! The Columbian anthem was sang as well, amidst boos, very typical and expected, in contrast with Samini’s which.. well you can imagine.

Ok.

After K. Kong’s fight, people just up’d and assumed the night was over. Don’t people listen or read? People can to leave after the champ had been crowned, totally forgetting there were other bouts to be fought. I don’t blame them.

They had seen what they came for. Only true boxing fans stayed on to watch the other bouts. And by that time, the gates were opened and as you can well imagine, everyone trooped in to the ringside! An awesome experience for them I can imagine!

Frederick Lawson won his fight, clinching the IBF Continental Africa Welterweight title. Then on came Duke Micah. Now that was enjoyable. His opponent (Michael Barnor) put on good show along with him. Duke emerged winner.

Then on to this guy! Sena Agbeko. More on him in my next post. His opponent could have at least, trained for a year before getting in the ring with him. Ah! What is that?! He might as well change his name from Sunday King Hammer to “Sundays I sing “mama”; or maybe it’s because he fought on a friday satruday?O.o

Oh well, last night was great!
