Accra June 30, GNA – Mr. Abraham Kottey, the Second Vice President of the Ghana Boxing Association (GBA) has announced that the bout involving Ghana’s Joseph Agbeko and Kenya’s Nick Otieno had been rescheduled for July 14.
The bout, originally scheduled for Friday July 30 at the Bukom boxing arena in Accra was called off due to reasons beyond the organizers.
According to Mr. Kottey, the former two times World champion’s opponent, Otieno was expected to be in Ghana on Thursday, however, some concerns in his camp delayed his arrival necessitating the postponement of the bout.
