Ivan Bruce Cudjoe, CEO of Cabic Promotions–which currently has two WBO Africa champions in super welterweight Patrick Allotey and heavyweight Richard Nii Lartey Harrison—says they are aiming to produce world champions for Ghana.
Speaking at a soiree filled with sports media, Cudjoe said the future looks bright after Allotey and Harrison defended their titles against durable opponents from Congo and Kenya respectively.
He said Cabic boxers are given the best of opponents to bring the best out of them and also give boxing fans their money’s worth.
According to Cudjoe, 2019 looks to be a good year for Ghana boxing. His hope is to clinch any of the world titles from the recognized sanctioning bodies.
He was specifically optimistic regarding the ability of Ghanaian boxers to win WBO titles, calling for corporations in Ghana to provide sponsorship to aid the quest to bring Ghana glory.
An experienced travel and tours agent, he said sports is a tourism product and Ghana boxing can be packaged to attract tourists and sponsors.
Cudjoe also expressed that Bukom Boxing Arena is ideal and should be maintained in order for the venue to host international fights. He was also happy that the Accra Sports Stadium is back in working order.
Ellis Quaye, a Director of Cabic, told the media they will continue to use entertainers as part of their shows, and unearth some underground musical talent as part of building the Cabic brand.
Gideon Jingles, the events coordinator of Cabic Promotions, commended the media for their support and contribution in securing eyeballs to their promotions.
Mohammed Amin Lamptey, PRO of Cabic Promotions, hinted that this year is going to be full of surprises for boxers, media and boxing fans as they plan on putting on mouth-watering shows that will be remembered for years to come.
“Ghana is a boxing nation,” he said. “But we have only nine former world champions, we need more world champions and we at Cabic will play our part to get the real champions from Ghana.”
