The rest who are Ghanaians include Desmond Agbozo, Kujo Dzakpata, Kofi Kumah Mensah and Walter Amenyo.
Chairman of the Federation, Enam Foster Dagadu confirmed this to TalksenseSports in an interview.
It is very necessary to outdoor or launch the ring we received. We have actually worked so hard in acquiring this ring and so, the need to do this. We have spoken to the Ziope Council and they have agreed for us to hold the bout there as they are celebrating their festival.
Looking at the boxers we have, it is going to be a Ghana vs Nigeria affair. All must come and watch the outdooring, he added.
The bout is scheduled to begin at 3pm and at a fee of GH₵7.00.
The bout is one of the many bouts the Federation intends to hold in many parts of the region in promoting the game.
The Federation is poised to groom boxers who will become World Champions in the future as it begins from the Amateur level.
The VRBF after making several appeals to their national bodies, GBA and Ghana Boxing Federation (GBF), finally received a Ring with accompanying equipment on Friday, August 17, a major boost to their objective.
