GBA Set To Expand Boxing League To Ashanti, Northern And Volta Regions


President of the Ghana Boxing Authority (GBA), Abraham Neequaye has revealed plans to expand the boxing league from Greater Accra to three other regions.

According to him, the success of the league, which is held at the Bukom Boxing Arena, has compelled the GBA to explore its viability in the Ashanti, Northern, and Volta Regions.

He told Citi Sports:

“We centered the whole thing in Accra now we are going to the regions. That tells you that there is an improvement

We did 20 events. Now, we’re looking at 30 events and put some ten out there in the various regions.

In my discussion with the minister, we looked at the Ashanti Region and the Northern region as well.

Volta Region is doing well.

“So we want to add the two to the Volta Region”

Abraham Neequaye also highlighted strategies to foster strong bonds with the Ghana Amateur Boxing Federation and other relevant stakeholders.

“With the Amateur, Juvenile and professional [boxing federation], we combined them so we do what we do as a family.

So we’re building the family and the good thing this time round is we try to have meetings with all our stakeholders

Some of the things we did the last year that is not in the right direction we’re looking this time sit down with everybody before we start the league so that tells you the future of Ghana Boxing”.
