The bout will be staged at the Freeman Coliseum, San Antonio, Texas, at the early hours of Sunday, March 11, 2018.
Ghanaian Boxing fans are tipping Rich Commey to crash the American boxer.
Speaking to Power Sports on Power 97.9FM ahead of the bout , Mr Zwennes said, the fisticuff “is a very crucial fight” for the Ghanaian boxer and it is even more important because it is a final eliminator which gives whoever wins the bout the opportunity to get a title shot license.
According to him, it would be very difficult for the boxer to get another shot at the world title stage should he lose the pending fight.
The GBA boss further used a semi final match in a football game to describe the bout stressing that, a semi final match is tougher than a final game because one does not reserve their energy for a final match if they have not won the one that progresses them there.
The private legal practitioner stated that, Oblitey’s opponent is no mean an opponent because he is an undefeated boxer who is yearning for a world title and so, it is going to be a tough fight.
He was however quick to add that, with Oblitey’s determination, patience and determination to get a world title, he’ll be seen through.
When asked to advise the Ghanaian boxer, he said if the Commey goes for a knockout, that would be fine, adding that the boxer should do everything humanly possible to win this fight hands down and dispel any doubt or give room for any manoeuvering or any robbery as pertains in foreign rings.
His advice follows a suspected robbery against Commey in Russia and US recently in his respective bouts against Dennis Shafikov and Robert Easter Junior some 14 months ago.
“He should go all out as if he is fighting for a world title itself…It is a crucial fight and he shouldn’t give anything to chance,” he added.
