Ghana’s medal hopes in international sports, the Bombers have promised to shine at the Bahamas Games where will be represented at the Games by Alfred Kotey (bantamweight) and Philip Quartey (lightweight) and would be accompanied by Coach Vincent Akai Nettey.

President of the GABF, Mr George Lamptey, who received  items on behalf of the team from Rafimex said the products and the money would motivate the boxers to win medals for the nation.

Mr Lamptey added that the GBF was cash-strapped which resulted in the Black Bombers’ absence from the African championships in Congo.

Rafimex General Trading Company Limited, distributors of sports drinks, last Friday presented 10 cartons of Lucozade drinks and an undisclosed amount of money to members of the national amateur boxing team, Black Bombers, in Accra.

According to Mr Sameer Thakkar, the Chief Executive of Rafimex, the donation was to support a three-man boxing contingent that would represent Ghana at the 2017 Commonwealth Youth Games from July 19 to 23 in the Bahamas.

He said the presentation was in response to a call for support by the Ghana Amateur Boxing Federation (GABF).

“As an avid boxing fan, I decided to support the boxers to bring honour to the nation. I am a keen follower of the sport and Ghana’s history in boxing suggests that with the needed support, the amateur fighters could make all of us proud by winning medals at international events.”
