Ghana Lightweight Prospect Gameboy Tagoe Ripping Up Lightweight Division
By Robert Brizel, Head Real Combat Media Boxing Correspondent
In Ghana, they call Emmanuel Tagoe ‘The Gameboy’. Out of the horn of Africa, he is the fastest rising lightweight prospect in the world. Fighting out of Ghana and the United States, Tagoe has won 24 consecutive bouts, the Ghanaian featherweight title, the World Boxing Organization Africa Super Featherweight title, the international Boxing Federation Super Featherweight title, and the World Boxing Association International Lightweight title.
A fine technical boxer whose win record in just one bout short of a fifty percent knockout ratio, Tagoe has already gone the distance in five 12 rounders, 3 ten rounders, and 5 eight rounders. Ranked number 12 in the world by the World Boxing Association, Tagoe is only a few fights asway from Richar Abril, Darleys Perez, and Derry Mathews, the three WBA titleholders at the top. Tagoe versus Ismael Barroso, Petr Petrov, Felix Verdejo, Rances Barthelemy, Miguel Vasquez, Evans Pierre, Anthony Crolla, Raymond Ojeda, and Argenis Lopez are among the top matchups for Tagoe coming up later in 2015 and in 2016. One thing is certain: The ‘Gameboy’ is game to fight the best in the 135 pound division.
