Jesse Manyo Plange calls out Inoue & Casimero


Ghanaian boxer Jesse Manyo Plange [20-0, 17 KOs] has called out Japanese superstar Naoya Inoue [20-0, 17 KOs] just days after the unified WBA Super World Bantamweight and IBF World Bantamweight champion defended his titles against Aussie fighter Jason Moloney [21-2, 18 KOs] on Saturday 31st October 2020.


The 20-0 fighter also stated that he would like to face Filipino boxer and WBO World Bantamweight champion John Riel Casimero [30-4, 21 KOs] who recently KO’d fellow Ghanaian boxer Duke “The Baby Faced Terminator” Micah [24-1, 19 KOs] at the Mohegan Sun Casino, USA on 26th September 2020.


Jesse stated that he is ready to face either of the two saying he has studied both boxers and is ready to take them on “I am hoping to fight Naoya or Casimero. I have watched them and I want to fight them and I know that when I fight them I am going to be the winner.”

“I am going to work hard for the fight because it is not going to be an easy fight because they are both world champions and they have been there for a couple of times. So I have to work hard towards my training and everything for me to get the fight.”

Jesse who is currently #5 on the WBA rankings has fought all his bouts in Ghana with his last fight coming back in January 2020 which saw him defeat Nigerian Sherif Kareem [9-2, 7 KOs] for the vacant West African Boxing Union (WABU) Super Flyweight title.
