Rising African possibility Joshua Wahab (20-0, 13 KOs) place pen to paper on a three-year promotional handle DiBella Amusement, joining the populated line at The Golden Tulip Resort, in Accra, Ghana.
Wahab, birthed in Lagos, Nigeria, mentioned his enormous satisfaction at securing his agreement as well as enjoyment at connecting with world-renowned instructor Manny Robles.
“I want to thank almighty Allah for getting me this opportunity and I want to thank my manager Michael Amoo-Bediako for getting me this promotional deal with Lou DiBella,” the unbeaten very lightweight mentioned.
“I am pleased to be with them because I know the good work they have done with Richard Commey and I know that with this team, along with my new trainer Manny Robles, I will become a world champion,” proceededWahab “I want to thank Charles Quartey and Kamel [who formed my previous team] for all the hard work they have put into my development over the years, and I will not let them down.”
It was a collaborating of Amoo-Bediako as well as Lou DiBella that began Richard Commey’s increase to prestige as well as globe champions, with Michael taking Commey from the roads of Accra to Madison Square Yard.
Amoo-Bediako’s brand-new administration agreement with Wahab thrills him equally as much as well as advises him of the very early days with his previous IBF light-weight globe champ.
“I am really pleased to add 20-0 super featherweight Joshua Wahab to our growing number of fighters that will be plying their trade stateside with DiBella Entertainment,” claimed Amoo-Bediako. “My partnership with Lou because the finalizing of Richard Commey has actually become an understanding of what it requires to make an African boxer a globe champ.
“There are many stereotypes when it comes to African fighters and we are working hard to break those down. I believe, with Joshua Wahab, we have another potential champion from the motherland. He will be training with world-renowned trainer Manny Robles, who I know is excited to be linking up with Joshua. We look forward to his progress in what is a very hot division with the likes of Oscar Valdez, Shakur Stevenson, Joseph Diaz, Carl Frampton, and DiBella’s own Tevin Farmer, to name but a few.”
The moving stateside will certainly be just one of the biggest barriers for the Ghana-based Nigerian indigenous, as well as the society modification has actually provided concerns for those that have actually finished it in the past. Wahab is an established person, determined to confiscate his chance, yet the instructor outlining his path to the leading recognizes it’s one action at once.
“I am definitely looking forward to working with Joshua,” included brand-new instructor, as well as Los Angeles-based designer of champs, Manny Robles. “I’m excited to have Joshua arrive in America and initiate training. I’m looking forward to the journey and we will take one fight at a time.”
Other Amoo-Bediako/DiBella stablemate as well as pal Richard Commey had some words of knowledge for the WBA Pan-African champ.
“It’s great that Joshua will be joining me in America. I have sparred with him in Ghana on a couple of occasions and I can tell he is going to be a problem for anyone in the 130-pound division,” claimed Commey. “He now has the right promoter and, of course, the best manager and now teaming up with Manny [Robles], I think he has a great opportunity to become a world champion. But he must listen and work hard and not be distracted by outside influences once he reaches America.”
As the offer was settled, the last word mosted likely to Lou DiBella, Wahab’s brand-new marketer. DiBella has actually focused on taking the sporting activity’s underdogs or unfancied as well as has actually relished figuring in in their success. In Wahab, he thinks he has the opportunity to do everything over once more which thrills him.
“Joshua Wahab is one of the top super featherweights in Africa. After developing himself locally, building his record to 20-0, Wahab has been scouted by Michael Amoo-Bediako, who is one of the premier managers in the game and one of the most influential people in the African boxing scene,” claimed Lou DiBella, Head Of State of DiBella Amusement.
“Many African fighters throughout boxing history have left home to test themselves against the best and now, it’s Wahab’s turn. Amoo-Bediako, who helped introduce former world champion Richard Commey to an American audience, has teamed up with DiBella Entertainment to bring Wahab to the United States. I am excited to work with Wahab as he reaches his full potential.”
