Peter Kahn Signs Undefeated Featherweight Prospect John Laryea!

12/14/2023 - No comments

Peter Kahn, the big boss of Fight Game Advisors, has just rolled out the red carpet for John Laryea, the undefeated featherweight powerhouse from Ghana. John, who’s only 23 but fights like he’s got dynamite in his gloves, is sitting pretty at #15 in the World Boxing Organization (WBO) rankings.

John’s been tearing up the ring, notching wins in four 12-rounders. His latest feat? Defending the WBO African Featherweight Title with a unanimous decision victory against Gabriel Odoi Laryea (no kin, just sharing a last name) in a clash that lit up the Bukom Boxing Arena in Accra, Ghana, on October 7, 2023.

This knockout artist has also sent Solomon Martey, George Krampah, and Sebastianus Natanael packing, proving he’s not just a flash in the pan. Kahn’s over the moon about bringing John into the fold, tipping his hat to Ghana’s storied boxing legacy and aiming to steer John towards world champ status.

John’s buzzing with excitement, tipping his hat to his manager Samuel Anim Addo and coach Carl Lokko for flipping his life script. He’s all about putting in the sweat to hoist that world champion belt for Ghana.

Samuel Anim Addo’s jazzed to have Kahn on the team, calling it a major play for the ‘John Laryea project’. Coach Carl Lokko’s echoing the sentiment, believing Kahn’s the missing puzzle piece for John’s ascent to global fame.

Kahn’s no stranger to Ghana’s boxing scene, having orchestrated Emmanuel Tagoe’s bout with boxing sensation Ryan Garcia in 2022. He’s a decorated veteran in the boxing world, scooping up the 2022 Manager of the Year award from the Boxing Writers Association of America and a spot in the Florida Boxing Hall of Fame in 2023.

A South Florida staple since ’92, Kahn’s been in the boxing biz for three decades. Cutting his teeth as an amateur boxer, he then joined forces with Don King in ’95, working on mega promotions with legends like Mike Tyson and Julio Cesar Chavez. His stint with Warriors Boxing Promotions saw him manage world champs and produce epic title fights.

Kahn’s got a roster of champs under his wing, including two-time world champion Randall Bailey and boxing guru Robert Garcia. He made history managing undisputed champs like George Kambosos Jr. and Franchón Crews-Dezurn. Nowadays, he’s grooming junior middleweight rising star Xander Zayas, among other top-ranked contenders and prospects at Fight Game Advisors.
