The Ghana Boxing Authority after electing its new leadership has seen face lifting initiatives hit the door of both the GBA, boxers, managers and stakeholders at large.
Over the years, disputes has been erupting between boxers and managers over contractual contents and this has caused many profession boxers to drift from the sport.
One of Ghana’s enterprising boxers Wasiru ‘Gyatabi’ Mohammed in a recent post sited on social media, the prolific boxer expressed his anguish following some contractual agreement between himself and his management as he requested to see the content of his agreement but wasn’t easy.
These and many other incidents after a careful review got to the attention of the Ghana Boxing Authority and its leadership which has aided an initiative that would ensure no contract is replaced or altered after it has been signed.
In a letter dated 14th October 2021 the GBA sent a notice to license boxers, managers and promoters. In the letter it read,
“The Ghana Boxing Authority (GBA) wishes to notify all promoters, boxers and managers that henceforth, a copy of properly signed promotional and boxer-manager contracts must be deposited at the GBA Secretariat at all period of time.
Any promoter or manager who has signed a contract with a boxer and has not deposited a copy at the GBA Secretariat does so at his/her own risk.
Be adviced accordingly
Abraham Kotei Neequaye.”
