African lightweight champion, Emmanuel ‘Gameboy’ Tagoe, is expected to leave the country for the United States ahead of his much touted world title bout against a yet-to-be-named opponent in September.
This follows his victory against Carlo Magali of the Phillipines in their 12-round lightweight contest in Accra last Friday night.
Managers of the boxer, BabyJet Promotions, believe the Bukum rising star is now set for the world title.
A close associate of BabyJet Promotions, Alex Ntiamoah Boakye, told the Graphic Sports in an interview that Gamboy had a brighter chance of annexing the world title.
