Ike Quartey made a successful ring return Saturday in Accra, Ghana. Boxing behind his vaunted jab, 'Bazooka' Quartey became the first boxer to stop opponent Clint Scott McNeil. Quartey stopped McNeil via an 8th round knockout in the scheduled 10 rounder. Quartey's record now stands at 32-2-1 with 30 KO's.

"Quartey's jabs are unbelievable. I believe he'd become a world champion again," said McNeil after the fight.

Quartey was cautiously optimistic about his performance. He said that he needs at least a couple more tuneup bouts before he could consider opponents such as Felix Trinidad or middleweight king, Bernard Hopkins. A former welterweight, Quartey is targetting a move up in weight class as he charts the second phase of his boxing career.
