Emmanuel ‘Game Boy’ Tagoe and his team are so fired up for his upcoming bout against Sadiki Momba of Tanzania so much the boxer has hinted that his promoter and manager, Asamoah Gyan could be one of his technical men in his corner come fight night, December 26.
Only this week did Allsports.com.gh report that big time boxing fan, Asamoah Gyan has been having some sparring sessions in training with the boxer his BabyJet Promotions syndicate manage and promote and the boxer reiterated the fact whilst also promising a surprise by the Ghana captain come the fight night dubbed ‘Who rules the ring?’
“This fight is going to be a whole brand new with lot of surprises and excitement and trust me I will win for all my fans. Baby Jet (Gyan) may be in my corner, don’t be surprised. We train together all of the time he is around and will be very great to work with him in the ring,” Tagoe told Wednesday’s press conference to announce the December 26 bill.
Tagoe who has been unbeaten in his entire career since suffering a reality check of a 5th round knockout defeat to Lante Addy on his professional debut back on June 19, 2004, has assured his management and fans of annexing the WBA Inter-continental Lightweight title against Momba on Boxing Day as he pushes the dream of wearing a world championship belt.
He has not fought since winning his maiden fight in the USA at the end of July last year but Tagoe has rubbished suggestions he could be ring rusty.
“You all know me, Game Boy what I can do in the ring and this time I’m going to put up a good fight as you have never seen before. The preparation I have done for this fight I’ve never prepared for a fight like that before, so expect the very best from me on the 26th,” Tagoe stated emphatically.
22 fights he has fought since that debut loss to Addy, 22 fights Tagoe has emerged victorious. Many titles have also been annexed on the way including the WBO Africa Junior Lightweight and IBF Intercontinental championships, but Tagoe insists the biggest is still on the way.
“Thank you everybody for showing up for this press conference, I believe I can become world champion. I know what I can do so everybody should support with their prayers so I will go on to win the world title for Ghana,” Game Boy said.
