Ghana’s Emmanuel “Game Boy” Tagoe (26-1, 13 KO’s) will battle Argentina’s Fernando David “El Vasco” Saucedo (60-6-3, 10 KO’s) for the vacant IBO lightweight belt.
The bout has been scheduled to come off on November 25th at the newly constructed Bukom Boxing Arena near the Korle Lagoon in Accra.
Tagoe currently holds the WBA international Lightweight belt – a title he won in 2015 when he stopped Filipino Joebert De los Reyes in four. The Ghanaian silky boxer is currently ranked WBA #9 and IBO #17.
For Saucedo in 2014 he failed in his bid to win a world title (super featherweight belt), the Argentine lost via a unanimous decision to Cuban hard puncher Rances Barthelemy.
Tagoe’s last fight was three months ago when he knocked out Carlo Magali in round eight to make his second defense of his WBA international lightweight belt while Saucedo last outing was last month when he unanimously defeated Pablo Manuel Ojeda to claim to claim the interim WBO Latino super featherweight belt.
Tagoe is being promoted by Baby Jet Promotions, a promotional outfit owned by Black Stars captain Asamoah Gyan.
