Members of the Commonwealth Hall of the University of Ghana will be making a first tertiary appearance at the second bout organized by the boxing Promotions of Ghana captain Asamoah Gyan.
The Vandals will be providing a charged atmosphere on Friday when Ghana’s Emmanuel Tagoe battles Ronald Pontillas for the WBA International and WBO Africa titles at the Accra Sports Stadium.
A team of charged Vandals as part of the electric atmosphere they will be providing on Friday night have composed songs wing mentions of Black Stars captain; Asamoah Gyan, Emmanuel Tagoe (the boxer) and Vits Instant Noodles (sponsors of the bout).
“We as intellectuals also have something to offer to our sports, not only football,” JCR President of Commonwealth Hall, Nana Baning-Darkwa said.
“We have composed special songs and performances which we will be displaying at the fight.
“We will make sure Friday’s fight will forever be etched in the memories of all who throng the Accra Sports Stadium.”
The Vandals will be giving a gist of what is to come on the fight night on Thursday when the two fighters do their mandatory weigh-in and pre-bout press conferences at the Accra Sports Stadium.
This will be the first time in the history of Ghana boxing that a hall of a tertiary institution is being given an official role for an international bout.
