Emmanuel Martey: Ghanaian Boxing Champion

Emmanuel Martey is a Ghanaian professional boxer who competes in the lightweight division. He is the current World Boxing Organization (WBO) Lightweight Champion, and has held the title since 2016.

Martey was born in Accra, Ghana, on September 20, 1985. He began boxing at the age of 13, and quickly rose through the ranks. He won the Ghanaian National Lightweight Championship in 2008, and the African Boxing Union (ABU) Lightweight Championship in 2010.

In 2012, Martey made his professional debut. He won his first 10 fights, all by knockout. In 2014, he challenged for the WBO Lightweight Championship, but lost to then-champion Jorge Linares by unanimous decision.

Martey rebounded from his loss to Linares with three consecutive victories. In 2016, he got another chance to fight for the WBO Lightweight Championship, this time against Terry Flanagan. Martey won the fight by unanimous decision, becoming the first Ghanaian to win a world boxing title since Azumah Nelson in 1994.

Martey has successfully defended his WBO Lightweight Championship three times. He is currently scheduled to face mandatory challenger Raymundo Beltran in a title fight on July 15, 2018.
