Now, it is a TKO for Emmanuel 'Game Boy' Tagoe. Called by referee Roger Barnor!!! Robbery!!! The Argentine has nothing to be shy of. He's just been robbed!!! Shame!!!— E. K. Amoh (@kwame_amoh) January 27, 2018
I'm disappointed in Emmanuel 'Game Boy' Tagoe. No urgency to knock his opponent down, too many showboating, Asamoah Gyan's playing in the PA system...no seriousness to win this, maybe!!!— E. K. Amoh (@kwame_amoh) January 27, 2018

Hmm, Game Boy Tagoe didn't impress me that much in the boxing ring last night. Want to see him against Bastie to defend the title. After all whoever wins still keeps the belt in Ghana.— Opanyin Kojo Wilson (@grouptringo) January 28, 2018
