Tagoe who is expected to do an exhibition with old foe George Ashie said he is disappointed in the awards as most of the time footballers overshadow boxers, when in actual fact they have not achieved much.
He expressed that he is the only reigning Ghanaian world boxing champion, and ever ready for a unification bout with any of the champions in the other boxing bodies.
He added that the SWAG awards should encourage, but he is disappointed, and prays that the respected association will reward those who really deserve.
“ I am the current king of Ghana Boxing, I have won more title belts than any boxer and currently I am the only world title holder in Ghana” he explained.
Tagoe will face Ashie in an exhibition fight to grace the visit of Floyd Mayweather on July 18 at the Bukom Boxing Arena. Obodai Sai will also take on an undefeated Namibian.
Emmanuel Tagoe and Tony Baffoe were named to contest for the 2016 SWAG Sports Personality of the year. Both of them attended the event graced by President Nana Akuffo Addo.
