International Boxing Federation (IBF) Continental Africa Middle champion, John Koudeha [17-1-0, 14 KOs], has claimed the defeat he suffered at the hands of Ghanaian boxer Emmanuel Quaye [4-9-0, 2 KOs] back in 7th April 2018 at the Bukom Boxing Arena was unfair.
Koudeha’s defeat to Quaye is the only one the man called the ‘Africa Mike Tyson’ has suffered in his entire professional career and the Ghana-based Togolese boxer was speaking with KBOXtv last night said he shouldn’t have lost that fight
“I didn’t lose that fight if you go and watch that fight, that fight is stopped in Round 6 and the contract I signed for this fight is [for 8 rounds] Round 8 and between you and I, it was obvious that I was whipping this guy [Emmanuel Quaye] from Round 1 to the round the fight was stopped” Koudeha revealed
“We don’t know why the referee stopped the fight, we thought that the referee had stopped the fight because this guy couldn’t continue because the whipping was too much but to my surprise, the referee stopped the fight and announced the guy as the winner” he further stated
The 30-year-old powerhouse said that although he would love to have a rematch with Emmanuel Quaye to set the record straight, he has moved on to bigger and better things.
“That would be so so nice [rematch] but unfortunately I think I have moved on. My first lost on my boxing career has something to do with my boxing life so because it was not a clear victory this is the reason why it was hard for me to forget about it.”
“It’s very very painful if you are to train very very hard and you have to be robbed in a country where you think everything is fair and you respect a lot.” He concluded
