By Prince Dornu-Leiku: George Ashie (23-3-1, 16 KOs) is calm and calculating, patiently waiting for Saturday November 10, 2012 when he mounts the ring than blab now of what he has up his fist for rival Emmanuel Tagoe, 18-1, 8 KOs. Ashie, nicknamed Red Tiger is promising to discipline Tagoe who goes by the alias Game Boy but will talk no further pointing out that the ring will determine who the true champion is.
“No problem at all. If he talks, it doesn’t mean he has fought already. Boxing is in the ring, not by talking so if the day is finally here, we shall all see what he can do. Let’s pray that the day of the fight does get here, that day has not come yet,” Ashie has told the Ghana-based website www.sportsinghana.com.
Former IBF Intercontinental and WBO Africa Junior Lightweight champ Emmanuel Tagoe on the other hand is so confident of beating Commonwealth Junior Lightweight titlist George Ashie when the duo face-off at the Accra Sports Stadium for the WBA International Lightweight title next weekend, so much he is setting the conditions Ashie has to abide by in order not to get completely humiliated.
