Former manager of Nana Yaw Konadu, Peter Kahn, has taken up the role of an advisor for WBO Africa lightweight champion, Emmanuel "Gameboy" Tagoe, as Lou DiBella seeks to transform the Ghanaian into a world champion.

Kahn, who helped train Tagoe's uncle, Konadu, while the fighter was stationed in Florida in the mid-nineties, will be tasked to bring to bear his rich experience in the sport to help Tagoe realise his world title potential.

Speaking after his appointment, Kahn said he was excited to have Tagoe team up with DiBella Entertainment since it is a perfect fit to guide the Ghanaian toward a world title.

He believes with the stable's ability to work well with other promoters, Tagoe will get the opportunity to challenge for a world title as soon as possible.

"I'm very excited to have Emmanuel Tagoe team up with DiBella Entertainment," said Kahn. "DiBella Entertainment is a perfect fit to guide Tagoe towards a world title and with the current landscape of the lightweight division, their stable and their ability to work well with other promoters, Tagoe is going to get his opportunity to fight for a world title. Ghana continues to produce elite level fighters and Tagoe is right in line with the best".

Tagoe (29-1, 14 KOs) signed a three-year promotional contract with DiBella Entertainment after a recent unanimous decision victory over former Namibian WBA World lightweight titlist, Paulus Moses, at the Bukom Boxing Arena.

The deal will add Tagoe to the DiBella Entertainment stable which already houses fellow compatriot Richard Commey as both fighters chase their dreams of winning world titles for Ghana.
