Tagoe faces new opponent Nzonke Dec. 2

Ghana’s Emmanuel Tagoe will fight South African opponent, Fana Nzonke, for his world title bout after Argentine opponent, Fernando David Saucedo, pulled out.

Saucedo’s camp failed to travel to Ghana on Saturday citing reasons of their boxer’s ill health.

BabyJet Promotions who are promoting the bout moved quickly to save the situation as they have arranged an opponent for Emmanuel Tagoe.

Nzonke has agreed personal terms and will travel to Ghana on Tuesday for the bout at the Bukom boxing arena in Accra on Friday, 2 December 2016.

“We had to get a new opponent for Tagoe following Saucedo’s unwillingness to travel down for the bout, luckily for us we got the IBO to approve for a replacement after this disappointment from Team Saucedo.

“We need Ghanaians to rally behind us to make it happen and for Game Boy to win the World title for Ghana”, said promoter Samuel Anim.

The entire team is likely to arrive in Ghana on Wednesday for the IBF Junior Lightweight Champion bout.
