ACCRA, THE CAPITAL CITY OF GHANA: Two men, both world beaters in their own vocations. One is the king of green pitches known for zigzagging between football players and in the process has earned his country Ghana a reputation of great mighty in football.
In the last two world cup finals in South Africa and Brazil, Asamoah Gyan was a really football maestro who mesmerized the games and wake up the whole stadium with his Ghanaian Samba playing styles. He is now on the process to make a Ghanaian the IBF International champion in King Kong Joseph Agbeko.
The other one was the first Ghanaian IBF Bantamweight King. Joseph Agbeko better known as King Kong who is the best pound for pound boxer that Ghana has ever produced. Following the footsteps of great ring warriors like Poison Kotey, Azumah Nelson and many others, King Kong Agbeko want to claim back his lost glory and afford this former Gold Coast nation and Kwame Nkrumah’s motherland to raise yet again into boxing stardom.
Ghana, one of Africa’s boxing powerhouses is home to a number of great ring warriors many who are loathed by their nemeses in the ring. As for Agbeko, time is catching up with the reality and that is the world’s deaden at a Bull Eye.
Lindsey Tucker, who is the Chairman of the IBF Championship Committee, has already informed team Agbeko that he is clear to go for the vacant IBF International Jr. Featherweight title against Carlos Magali from the Philippines. The two great warriors would put all the cards on the table to claim what is rightfully theirs, the IBF International Title as a launch pad to the world title, hopefully soon.
It would take an armed tank to stop "King Kong" Joseph Agbeko who would be cheered by the thousands home fans at Accra Sports Stadium on March 6, 2915 to ascend to the IBF International Jr. Featherweight.
Agbeko would fight under his most natural and best environment, the IBF that made him the world champion after he became the Commonwealth champion. As usual, most Commonwealth champions goes on to become world champions.
Both boxers would go to the ring with great and colorful boxing record under BabyJet Promotions collaboration with Fresh King Entertainment and Box Office Promotions bill.
Magali’s (17-8-3, 9 KOs) boxing record against Agbeko’s 29(22)-5-0 makes the fight as one of the most competitive duels ever took place in the Ghanaian capital, Accra. It would be the rumble worthy watching by boxing spectators around the world!
