Tagoe with team in their training campBaffour Gyan, Manager and Agent of WBA International Junior Lightweight champion, Emmanuel Tagoe AKA Game Boy is promising to stage a world title fight in Ghana for the boxer should he overcome American Gerardo Robles this coming Friday August 9 at the Morongo Casino Resort & Spa, Cabazon, California, USA.

Gyan, elder brother of Ghana national soccer team captain, Asamoah Gyan and a former Ghana international himself, is personally in camp with Tagoe as the boxer prepares to face Robles in his first fight in the United States with the IBF Intercontinental Junior Lightweight belt at stake.

Baffour is not only supervising the assiduous training sessions Tagoe is undergoing at the Ten Goose Boxing Gym in Los Angeles, but the President of the Ghana based BabyJet Promotions and Management is also busy holding talks with the IBF for Tagoe to get a crack at the world title itself before the end of the year against incumbent champion, Argenis Mendez who defends the IBF Junior Lightweight belt against Arash Usmanee on August 23 at the Turning Stone Resort & Casino, Verona, New York.

“We are in talks with the IBF for the winner to fight Game Boy when he gets this Intercontinental title on Friday. We are confident we can get the IBF champion to defend the title against him in Ghana on December 26,” Gyan told from their US camp.

He added: “The training here is not easy, I’m very impressed with the facilities. It’s all good because it can only make Game Boy better. I’m appealing all Ghanaians to pray for Tagoe to win this title on Friday because we are determined to win the world title for the country.”
