Ghana Boxing Authority President, Peter Zwennes says major punitive measures will be meted out to Emmanuel ‘’GameBoy’’ Tagoe for his recent defamatory statements about coach Paul Dogboe, the father and trainer of WBO title contender, Isaac Dogboe.
IBO lightweight champion alleged that Paul has been using his son to defraud many people including businessman Ibrahim Mahama.
“He has been going round defrauding people, Ibrahim Mahama, he defrauded him. He goes around with his son promising to do this or that and absconds. He recently defrauded someone also in the Volta Region,” Tagoe was quoted as saying on Happy FM.
And although, Paul has filed a lawsuit against the 31-year-old, seeking GH¢1 million in damages and a perpetual injunction from the court restraining Tagoe from further publishing or causing to be published the said defamatory statement, Zwennes has confirmed GBA are taking steps to heavily sanction him.
‘’We have summoned Tagoe and his team to the GBA to show course why he should not be disciplined for the sort of public comments he has been making before and after his last fight,’’ Zwennes said.
”I thought that given his dismissal and lacklustre performance on that day, he should be more concerned with training and bettering his lots rather than casting aspersions and insulting everybody practically on sight.’’
