Gameboy’s bout with Filipino postponed

The WBA International Lightweight Championship contest between Ghana’s Emmanuel ‘Game Boy’ Tagoe and Filipino Joebert Delos Reyes has been postponed to April 24.

The postponement was made necessary due to a bout of Malaria suffered by Tagoe.

The fight night which also features another cracking bout between George ‘Red Tiger’ Ashie and Ronald Pontillas was originally scheduled to be staged on March 27.

The postponement will ensure that the lead boxer of the Baby Jet Promotions make a full recovery and is in top shape for the bout which will take place at the Lawn Tennis Court of the Accra Sports Stadium.

Preparations and logistics are being organized to stage the fight – which will be beamed live to over 50 countries in Africa by SuperSport – on the new date.

Baby Jet Promotions will be issuing a release of event timelines in the build-up to the fight in due course.
