On Friday, November 20, at the Sports Hall of Accra Sports Stadium in Accra, Ghana, WBA Intercontinental lightweight champion Emmanuel “The Game Boy” Tagoe (24-1, 11 KOs), the silky-smooth boxer-puncher fighting out of Accra, defends his title against  Allan Kamote (26-8-4, 17 KOs), from Tanga, Tanzania.

Tagoe hasn’t lost a fight since his pro debut in 2004. “The Game Boy” won the Ghanaian featherweight title in 2007 and is a former WBO and IBF champion.

Tagoe first won the vacant WBA International lightweight title in 2012 with a majority decision victory over George Ashie. In his next, fight five months later, he won the vacant WBA International super featherweight title by majority decision over Ronald Pontillas.

In his last fight, “The Game Boy” captured the vacant WBA International lightweight title for a second time by scoring n eye-popping a fourth round TKO over Joebert Delos Reyes.

Kamote is a former Tanzanian bantamweight champion, but has lost two of his last five fights by early stoppage.

Tagoe vs. Kamote is being promoted by Baby Jet Promotions.
