The weekly Weekend Boxing Night series returns tomorrow at James Town in Accra as a juvenile and amateur fighters get the opportunity to compete.

Mr Allotei-Cofie said his outfit was getting boxers in shape towards an upcoming McDan-sponsored boxing slugfest at the Asafotufiami Festival at Ada on August 2, which is being put together by the Graphic Sports, in collaboration with his outfit.

“It has been great to see these boxers get the platform to express themselves and tomorrow is not going to be an exception because the pairings will bring out good contests.
