Ghanaian three-time World Bantamweight Champion, Joseph ‘Kingkong’ Agbeko with boxing history of 35-30-5 will mount the ring against the pride of Tanzania, Haji Mwalugo Juma with boxing history of 29-18-8-5 at the Accra Sports Stadium on August 27, 2016.
Under the promotion of Fresh King Entertainment (FKE), the 10-round contest has been dubbed, ‘Fight for Peace’.
“I am glad to contribute my quota to the many peace campaigns in the country as we approach a very crucial election in our country’s history. We can’t take the peace we currently enjoy for granted. I believe boxing is the only legal fight and I entreat all who want to use violence or fight to settle disputes to join me in the ring to slug it out,” Agbeko declared.
According to the CEO of FKE, “this fight is Agbeko’s way of promoting peace before and after the December 7th elections which will have some of his friends in the entertainment industry support him on the night.”
“The fight is also a warm up for Kingkong’s September 30 fight with a yet to be named opponent at The D Hotel and Casino, Las Vegas in the United States which will be promoted by Roy Jones Promotions.
