WELTERWEIGHT SILVER champ: Ekow Essuman (UK)

Chris Kongo lost a Majority Decision 12 against British and Commonwealth champion Ekow Essuman last January 21st in Manchester.  

Kongo refused to fight for Essuman’s IBF regional title and his fight in Manchester was only to be for our belt, for the British and Commonweath crowns as well (no IBF).   Kongo lost the WBC International Silver title to Essuman who is now the new champion.   A future title defence of our belt by Essuman cannot be with the IBF regional title at stake.
