“Not that I am the only world title holder, but I am the only Ghanaian boxing champion with 11 title belts” he stressed.
For his next fight he promised to make the prediction in front of his opponent to show that he is never afraid of any boxer.
According to Tagoe, he is also the best performer of the art if boxing is a noble art of self defence.
He noted that boxing is not for strong people, but smart people, that is why Pernel Whitaker beat Azumah Nelson.
“I have the skill, stamina and natural talent, so I did not go through the amateur ranks. I just jumped into the game because I wanted to box” he said.
Emmanuel Tagoe also expressed that he has fought the toughest opponents among Ghanaian boxers, but he makes tough guys look ordinary, so people think his opponents are not strong. He hinted turning a pastor after quitting boxing.
“I am promising Ghanaians another great boxing night on January 27, 2018, and I want people who love real boxing to come and watch another display. I will give them their money’s worth of quality boxing” he explained.
For the past week, Emmanuel ‘Game Boy’ Tagoe and his managers, Sammy Anim Addo and Baffour Gyan, senior brother of Black Stars captain Asamoah Gyan have been visiting some media houses to market the next big fight at the Bukom Boxing Arena.
Tickets for the bout between Tagoe and Argentina’s David Fernando Saucedo have started selling at 300ghc for VIP ringside, 200ghc for ringside and 20ghc for the popular stand.
Tagoe (27-1, 13 KOs) will step into the ring for the first time in over a year, after injuries and other technical issues ensured he has not fought since winning the title with a unanimous points decision over South African Mzonke Fana in December 2016.
