2 Min Read

The National Boxing Team, the Black Bombers will be in New Zealand in June this year to participate in the international professional and amateur boxing tournament in Auckland with their New Zealand counterparts.

According to Vice President of the Ghana Boxing Federation (GBF) Mr. Dauda Fuseni, the programme is to enable boxers of the two countries to test and sharpen their potential top boxers in preparing them for other Games.

He said while the main team would be in Thailand to participate in the second World Boxing Qualifier for Paris 2024, the reserve side comprising other top young budding pugilists like Mohammed Aryeetey and Abu Kamoko get the opportunity to travel to New Zealand for the project which is a bilateral relationship agreed by the Amateur Federations of the two countries.

Dauda Fuseni said the Black Bombers remarkable performance at the 13th African Games where they bagged four gold, one silver and two bronze medals has been noticed and Ghana is still seen as a great boxing nation.

“We need exposure, our boys are good but they lack international exposure and experience, they must go out to fight or we must invite other nationals here and it is not easy, so when such opportunities come we should not let it slip” he told Yours Truly.

Mr. Fuseni said the Black Bombers must be in Paris at all costs.

“We should be at the 2024 Olympic Games, we have made history and we should maintain it” he expressed.
