Ghanaian Patrick Allotey takes on Burkinabe namesake Sou Toke for the vacant WBC International silver welterweight belt, and both unbeaten boxers are vowing to go home with the title.
Sou Toke (14-0, 7 KOs) says he is unruffled by the expected massive home support for the Ghanaian and is urging the Burkina Faso community in Ghana and the Ambassador to troop to the Lebanon House for Monday's fight because he promises them a Christmas gift via victory over Allotey.
But Allotey is adamant he will emerge victorious in his forward match to world title glory. "No way I'm losing this fight especially in front of my home fans. I urge all my fans in Chorkor and the whole Ghana to come in their numbers because I'm winning this title for us all," Allotey (19-0, 15 KOs) said.
