By Prince Dornu-Leiku: Fresh from claiming a 4th round TKO win over Tackie Anane, Ghana's Abdul Malik Jabir says he is determined more than ever to prove his critics wrong by knocking out his next opponent, Samir Kasmi, when he fights the France Super Featherweight champion in his hometown of Noisy Le Grand next month.
ďI know that by the grace of God I will win. He will not last more than two rounds. People can say whatever they want but God is my witness. Iím not afraid even if it is his hometown because Iíve prepared and Iím ready to get to the top. Jah is my friend and I know he will guide me to victory,Ē Malik told ALL SPORTS.
