Seven boxers set to participate in the final qualifying round in Thailand

By Janet Dumas

The Ghana Boxing team have received approval from the Sports of Youth and Ministry and the Ghana Olympic Committee to participate in the final Olympic Qualifier in Bangkok, Thailand, scheduled from May 22 to June 2, 2024.

A middle-weight boxer, Dr. Ornella in the United States, is said to join six other male members of the National Boxing Team which is the Black Bombers team for the upcoming 2nd World Qualifying Tournament in Bangkok-Thailand.

Despite participating in two previous qualifiers, Ghana is yet to secure its first boxing slot for the Paris Olympic Games.

Last year in Senegal, twelve boxers including Seth Gyimah from Ghana failed to secure a qualifications slot in the Olympics.

The Boxing team is looking forward to continuing from where they left off in the African Games after clinching a total of 7 medals which implies 4 Gold,1 Silver and 2 Bronze in the boxing event.

In the initial Olympic Qualifier of the year held in March, a contingent of seven Ghanaian boxers vied for a total of 49 coveted slots.

Despite their tremendous efforts, the Black Bombers team, comprised of Samuel Takyi competing in the light welterweight category, Theophilus Kpakpo Allotey in the flyweight division, Alfred Kotei in the light-middleweight division, Jonathan Tetteh competing in the light heavyweight class, and Leicester-born Mark Kojovi Ahondao representing in the heavyweight category, unfortunately couldn’t secure their spots for the upcoming Olympics.

In addition to that, the Black Hitters pair, Janet Acquah and Warrant Officer Anatu Mohammed, also faced disappointment as they were unable to clinch qualification.
