Ghana Amateur Boxing Federation to organize President's Cup
Accra, Mar. 2, GNA - The Ghana Amateur Boxing Federation (GABF) will stage a triangular tournament from 5-7 March at the D.G. Hathiramani Sports Hall of the Accra Sports Stadium to commemorate Ghana's 55th Independence Anniversary celebrations.
A press release signed by GABF General Secretary, Dominic Kankam, copied to GNA Sports said the tournament dubbed “President's Cup” is also to honour President John Evans Atta Mills for his support to sports development in the country.
It said the three-day tourney will feature three teams from Ghana, Gabon and Benin, and will also form part of the Black Bombers' preparation towards the London 2012 Olympic Games qualifier in Casablanca, Morocco later in the year.
The Gabonese arrived last Thursday whilst the Benin team is scheduled to arrive on Sunday, March 4, 2012.
The GABF also extends its gratitude to Voltic Ghana Limited, Geodrill Company and Global Voice Group for their continuous support for the development of the sport of amateur boxing.
It will be recalled that the Black Bombers were hosted by their Beninois counterparts in a special contest in Cotonou, where the Ghanaian team bagged five wins in eight bouts.
