The management group of embattled Ghanaian boxer Patrick Allotey – Cabic Promotions, have appealed to the Ghana Boxing Authority to slash the six-month suspension hit on the WBO Super Welterweight boxer.
Allotey appeared before an Accra circuit court who has ordered him to submit his passport and other travelling documents.
The boxer, who lost to Mexican Jaime Munguia in a title bout last year, is paying the price for his inability to control his tempers during Hearts of Oak’s 2-1 loss to Asante Kotoko last month at the Accra Sports Stadium.
His management is however appealing to the GBA to consider reducing the ban on the boxer.
“The ban is going to affect Patrick Allotey because plans were far advanced as we were arranging a bout for him so as to bounce back in a big way after losing to Mexican opponent Jaime Munguia in California last year. We will appeal to the disciplinary committee or GBA as an organization to reduce the ban to save his career as he is also a national asset and in contention to bring glory to the nation,” a member of Cabic Boxing Promotions told KBoxtv.
Allotey has publicly issued an apology to the football fan he assaulted at the stadium.
Meanwhile Asante Kotoko defender Christopher Nettey who is related to the embattled boxer has also rendered an apology on his behalf. The lateral defender has admitted that Allotey came to the stadium because of him.
