The Boxing Promoters Association of Ghana has been reconstituted with the election of new executives on 14th January 2022 at the plush Idrowhyt Events Centre, Akokofoto, Dansoman.
This forms part of efforts by the body of promoters, to help build Ghana Boxing, which is in line with the constitution of the Ghana Boxing Authority (GBA).
Boxing promoters in attendance included Alex Ntiamoah-Aboakye (Box Office Sports Promotions), Laud Stephens Amihere (Box Office Sports Promotions), Kizito Akudago (ACE Power Promotions), Isaac Adu-Amankwaah (ACE Power Promotions), Gideon Oyiadzo Jingles (Cabic Promotions), Ellis Quaye (Cabic Promotions), Ivan Bruce-Cudjoe (Cabic Promotions), Michael Amoo-Bediako (Streetwise Promotions), James Mensah (Streetwise Promotions), Henry Addo Welbeck (S3 Promotions), Benjamin Neequaye (S3Promotions), Derrick Kotey (Ambition Boxing Promotions) and Edwin Lloyd Nii Odartey Evans (WinbasePromotions).
At the end of the day, the following persons were elected into office;
Mr. Alex Ntiamoah-Boakye of Box Office Sports promotions was elected as President with Kizito Akudago of ACE Power Promotions emerging as General Secretary while Gideon Oyiadzo Jingles of Cabic Promotions as the organizer.
The role of boxing promoters in the discovery of boxing talent in Ghana can’t be underestimated.
Boxing promoters make it their business to provide the platform to enable the discovery of boxing talents and the making of world champions.
Thus, whiles members of the association are competitors, they are not rivals and therefore see the need to work closely together to advance the course of Ghana boxing.
Members of the association have therefore seen the need to come together as an association to as well cater for the welfare of its members.
The association expression of grief at the lack of sponsorship from corporate Ghana as one of the major challenges that promoters face in our bid to stage more competitive fights in order to discover more talents.
Members of the association appealed to corporate Ghana to invest more in boxing promotions and be rest assured that, more world champions will emerge from Ghana.
The BPA called on the media for more publicity and sponsorship to help attract more investment into boxing.
