UK based Ghanaian boxing sensation, Seth Gyimah, better known as Freezy Macbones has arrived in the country to team up with the national boxing team’s final phase of preparations ahead of the Paris 2024 Olympic Games Africa boxing qualifiers in Dakar, Senegal next month.

The 34 year old Freezy MacBones landed at the Kotoka International Airport in Accra on Sunday afternoon and was met by friends and family as well as the Ghana Boxing Federation (GBF) led by President Bernard Quartey and his two VIce-Presidents, Dauda Fuseni and Solomon Otoo Lartey.

The heavyweight boxer likened to the legendary Iron Mike Tyson assured Ghanaians of his commitment and determination to represent Ghana at the Olympics and will do everything to grab a ticket when the continental battle bells off in Dakar 9-16 September.

“I am grateful to the GBF President and other executives for all the hard work to get me here, I appreciate the support,” Gyimah told newsmen at the airport.

“The target is simple, beat everyone else in my way in Dakar to make it to Paris. I cant wait to fly the Ghana flag at the Olympic Games so it’s down to hardwork until the goal is achieved. Let’s go Ghana,” he added.

On his part, the GBF boss expressed elation that their scouting for Ghanaian talent elsewhere to complement the locally assembled team has yielded dividends by the bringing on board of Freezy Macbones and pleaded for utmost support from Ghanaians.

“For us to excel and increase competition in the team for the ultimate good of the country, we must look everywhere for potential talents and bring everyone on board so they compete and we choose the best to represent Ghana,” Mr. Quartey said.

“Welcome home Freezy, we assure you of our total support and we hope you will go on to make Ghana proud in Dakar and even beyond,” he affirmed.
