Former Ghanaian International Boxing Organising (IBO) Champion, Emmanuel Tagoe who is known in the boxing fraternity as ‘The Game Boy” has called on the speaker of Ghana’s parliament Rt Hon. Alban Kingsford Sumana Bagbin.
On the visit, Tagoe presented and decorated the speaker with two titles he is won which are IBO Inter Continental and WBO Global.
Team Tagoe also informed the office of the speaker of his preparation towards the world title final eliminator bout scheduled for May in Florida in the United States of America.
Game Boy used the occasion to plead for support and blessing from the speaker as he steps into the ring to raise the flag of Ghana high.
Rt Hon. Speaker in his response promised the boxer of his fullest support that will guarantee him the next tile which is higher than the ones he has in his possession now.
Mr. Bagbin, again assured team Tagoe of his readily opened arms to receive him anytime he chooses to and advised him to come to the public gallery in parliament to witness how policies are formulated to manage his profession.
I am going to inform the parliamentary select committee of sports to make sure you’re offered the needed possible support in your career chosen ‘he added”.
He heaped pieces of caution on Game Boy to continue to remain disciplined to achieve the highest pedigree in the boxing field.
I know talents are in abundance across the country in the various sporting disciplines but what they are only waiting for is the right opportunity and support to blossom.
