Joseph Kwadjo will play a double role when he fights for the World Boxing Organisation (WBO) international super middleweight title in Ghana on August 25.
The Ghanaian boxer will be fighting in front of his own home crowd, but will be representing his adopted country Fiji.
Been away from home for the last five years and now calling Fiji home, Kwadjo is hoping for a victorious return to Fiji.
“I have friends in Ghana who have been calling me up and wishing me all the best for that fight. This is going to be a huge fight for me because I am from Ghana and will be boxing in front of my home crowd, but will be representing Fiji,” he said.
Kwadjo will be fighting Georgia’s Shalva Jomardashvili for the title.
His trainer Gyan Singh said they were confident of winning the WBO title from Jomardashvili.
“This is a big step we’re taking. His opponent won’t be an easy fighter to target, but we have being building up for this fight for as long as we can remember.
“We haven’t found any other boxer in the Pacific region including Australia and New Zealand that can fight him in the super middleweight category, but that has not deterred us,” the no-nonsense trainer said.
