Ghana’s Emmanuel Tagoe will fight a different opponent for his world title bout after Argentine opponent, Fernando David Saucedo pulled out.
Saucedo’s camp failed to travel to Ghana on Saturday citing reasons of their boxer’s ill health.
But reliable information reaching Joy Sports indicate the Argentine has just chickened out following his anticipation of losing the bout.
BabyJet Promotions who are promoting the bout have moved quickly to save the situation as they have arranged an opponent for Emmanuel Tagoe.
South African boxer, Fana Mzonke has agreed personal terms and will travel to Ghana on Tuesday for the bout at the Bukom boxing arena in Accra on December 2.
“We had to get a new opponent for Tagoe following Saucedo’s unwillingness to travel down for the bout, luckily for us we got the IBO to approve for a replacement after this disappointment from Team Saucedo,” said promoter Samuel Anim
“This goes down to show what we have always been saying that opponents are afraid of Game Boy.
“We need Ghanaians to rally behind us to make it happen and for Game Boy to win the World title for Ghana”
Emmanuel Tagoe will battle South African Fana Mzonke for the IBF Junior Lightweight Champion.
