Former African Games silver medalist, Isaac Ekpo is seeking revenge against WBA Super-middleweight champion, Tyron Zeuge and is confident he will drop the German when the two clash in a rematch on Saturday.
Zeuge defeated Ekpo by Technical Decision in March of 2017; the first meeting between them in Germany.
They will return to the ring in Hamburg and this time the Nigerian boxer is determined to correct the wrongs from the first bout.
Ekpo told brila.net on the eve of fight night that he’ll make sure “Tyron doesn’t complete the 12 rounds.”
Meanwhile, Ekpo’s trainer and American boxing coach Stacey McKinley declared the readiness of his boxer who assures the challenger is a much different fighter from the one that lost a year ago.
Zeuge and Ekpo penned a mandatory rematch after the fight in March and McKinley is convinced his 35-year-old boxer is the next big thing from the country like Samuel Peter.
