The exciting Bukom Fistof Fury Boxing League being organized by the Ghana Boxing Authority (GBA) and Ghana Amateur Boxing Federation (GBF) has received a financial boost of ¢20,000 from GOIL, a petroleum company.
The boost comes ahead of the league’s first set of semi-final clashes, tonight, at Osu 5 Junction.
At a recent media briefing at the MJ Grand Hotel, Kwame Osei-Prempeh, the Managing Director of GOIL, said the wholly-owned Ghanaian company is committed to supporting boxing to win laurels for the country.
Besides the financial support for the organisers of the popular programme, winners of both the amateur and professional fights will take home cash prizes at the grande finale scheduled for August 3.
“We would not only pay the topmost price but also support the champion to become a world-class boxer and win titles for the country.
“With ‘Prof.’ Azumah Nelson as our brand ambassador, we have already declared our interest in the development of boxing in the country and would continue to grant our assistance to the ongoing boxing league,” he assured.
“Boxers must stay away from drinking and womanising but rather train and remain disciplined in order to excel,” he advised.
The convenor of Bukom Fist of Fury, Moses Foh Amoaning, said, “If football fails, we could always rely on boxing to cheer us up as boxers continue to win titles for the country.”
The former GBA president who is now the Technical Consultant to the boxing sanctioning body conveyed an immense gratitude to GOIL for coming on board to support boxing.
The pairings announced by the Matchmaker, Believer, will pit Derick Mensah against Mohammed Aryeetey in the 49kg in one of the semi-final bouts, while Michael Abban fights Moses Agyei in the 52kg.
Young rising star, Daniel Gorsh of Bronz Gym will battle Bernard Ankrah in the 56kg category.

Daniel Oduro and Stephen Quaye will fight in the 69kg weight class, while 75kg weights, Michael Bibi and Michael Arhin, also battle for honours.
The second semi-final bouts will take place on July 26, with the grande finale of the Bukom Fist of Fury fixtures are scheduled for August 3, featuring amazing juvenile, sensational amateur and fantastic professional fights.
George Lamptey, the president of the GBF, also thanked GOIL for their support and called on other companies to motivate and encourage the amateur boxers who do represent Ghana at international competitions.
