DUKE MICAH, a boxer, has issued an apology for his recent facebook polemic tirade against his former trainer Carl Lawrence Lokko in which he made a number of accusations and called the coach’s integrity into disrepute.
Below is the apology unedited;
“To all Ghanaians and Boxing Aficionados:
I recently posted a video on Facebook expressing my feelings and how I’ve been treated. I have had fights cancelled, training not go according to plan, and other issues that have been very frustrating. I just snapped.
Although I stand by the things I said, I was wrong in naming certain people on social media. I now realise the damage this has done and I apologise.
I want to apologise to Carl Lokko for making certain things public, which was wrong to do. In my anger and frustration, I shared all this on social media and was unaware of the uproar it would cause.
I also want to apologise to the Ghana Boxing Authority and all my fellow Ghanaians. I will make sure it never happens again.
Michael Amoo-Bediako, my manager, has made it clear to me that this type of behaviour is unacceptable and there is no place for it in our sport. He has warned me about the negativity social media brings if used improperly and I now see that for myself.
Again, I would like to offer my sincere apologies to all concerned parties.” The statement concluded.
We are very unsure as to what might have triggered this quick apology but the fact still remain that Duke is not apologising for his purported accusations issued but rather the naming of certain personalities in the said video.
Earlier, In our interview with Carl Lokko, He made it known to us about his decision to exercise some legal action against his former protege.
“My Lawyers are working on it already so I don’t want to say much.” Carl Lokko told BoxingGhana.com.
