Wladimir and Vitali Klitschko, who have been dominating the heavyweight division for several years, plan to stage a boxing event in Ghana, which can help to promote boxing in Africa. Ghanaian Jonathan Ahene Truly, who is going to be a co-organizer, has revealed that the event is tentatively scheduled for March.
“The year 2013 will be a very good year for Ghana boxing, because we have the Klitschko brothers coming in by March, to organize a boxing tournament. So to start with, that is the main highlight. Apart from that, Agbeko will be fighting here in Ghana. Joshua Clottey has gotten a go ahead for a championship fight. We are also expecting a coach from the US to come and help our boxers,” Truly told Joy FM.
The most recognized boxers from Ghana are Joseph Agbeko (former IBF bantamweight champion) and Joshua Clottey (former IBF welterweight champion).
