He said Wasiru Mohammed who holds the WBO Global Super Bantamweight title belt and highly rated in the contenders at number 7 for the main title is training steadily and gradually to hit the crown which is held by Mexican Emmanuel Navarrette who took it from Isaac Dogboe, another Ghanaian amazing boxer.

He revealed that the cub ‘Gyatabi’ is growing into a lion and he would be explosive in his next bout.

Boham is a long time member of the Ghana Boxing Authority (GBA) and immediate past vice president of the Ghana Kickboxing Association (GBKA).
