Listen to article

Accra, May 14, GNA - The Ghana Amateur Boxing Association (GABA) has placed an indefinite suspension on Will Power Boxing Club for acts of indiscipline.

The decision was taken at a meeting of the association held on Friday February 14, to investigate acts of indiscipline that caused the abrupt end of the Amateur Boxing Tournament of the Greater Accra Sports Festival.

A statement signed by Mr R.0. Lamptey Jnr, Secretary-General of GABA said the association is in no uncertain terms condemning such barbarous behavours and indiscipline exhibited by some of the club managers who seem to be dragging the name of amateur boxing into disrepute.

The statement said the association has however decided that the tournament will continue on Tuesday, May 18 and urged all clubs to attend medical examinations and Weigh In at 6.30 am on the same day.
