I want to prove to the world I can beat McAllister says Djarbeng ahead of May 29 rematch


LONDON (Monday, May 17, 2021) In October 2019, Aberdeen and Accra’s Lee McAllister, Ghana’s Richmond Djarbeng locked the horns for the World Boxing Union (WBU) welterweight superweight world crown, and he’s the killer of Aberdeen who went on to hold the WBU championship belt aloft.

Earlier this year, McAllister traveled to Ghana, where he fought and beat Collison Corley, much to the chagrin of Djarbeng, who clearly believed it should have been him as the Ghanaian had been clamoring for a rematch since the 2019 loss.

Djarbeng, who had talked a lot about his performance in 2019, said in a recent interview with GNA Sports;

“I’m grateful to have this opportunity to come and redeem myself and get the victory I deserve.

“Since we fought, I won my two fights over the distance.

“I broke my finger as we approached the last fight, I shouldn’t have fought, but I did.

“He’s not big enough or strong enough by weight to fight me when I’m fully ready to fight, and I am this time.

“He knows I’m too big and strong for him and I want to prove to the world that I can beat him.”
