The management of the Trust Sports Emporium Limited have handed over an office to the Ghana Boxing Authority (GBA) to aid in the administration of the sport in the country.

Theodore Ohene, the Managing Director of the Emporium, who presented the keys of the office to the president of the Ghana Boxing Authority (GBA), Peter Zwennes, said their decision to support the GBA was to help develop the sport in the country.

He added that the Emporium which was built to cater for the least financed sports in the country had the Bukom Boxing Arena as its lead auditorium thus the need to provide them with an office.

"We decided to present this office to the GBA as it is the body responsible for the regulation of boxing in the country to help develop the sport," Mr Ohene told the Daily Graphic.
