He noted that special attractions will grace the tournament as there will be more drinks and food for patrons as they watch the fights.
Lawrence Nyanyo Nmai who has trained in many countries in Asia and Europe said Ghanaian Kick Boxers will very soon be fighting in tournaments around the world and called for support from the government and the National Sports Authority (NSA).
He hinted that Kick Boxing is not an Olympic Sport, so they find it very difficult to get Olympic Solidarity Support and he is praying very hard for the sport to be recognized as an Olympic Sport.
l1He appealed to Sports Companies like Puma and Adidas to equip the National Kick Boxing Team as they prepare for the Big event at the Accra Sports Stadium, rlg Hathiramani Hall.
“We are coming to make Kick Boxing big in Ghana and Africa. Not everybody loves football. Some of us love to box and kick, so the government must consider us and not pump all the money into football. We need equipment and opportunity to travel and rub shoulders with others outside. We want to put the name of Ghana on the map and I believe we have the men to do it.” He said.
