GBF calls for sacking of head of Black Bombers after poor show at Olympic Games qualifiers

The Second Vice President of the Ghana Boxing Federation (GBF), Solomon Otoo Lartey, has called for the removal of Coach Ofori Asare, who serves as the Head Coach of the national amateur boxing team, known as the Black Bombers.

This demand comes in the wake of the team’s failure to secure an Olympic slot during the Africa Boxing Championship qualifiers held in Dakar, Senegal.

Expressing disappointment over the team’s inability to qualify for the next Olympic Games, Mr. Otoo Lartey emphasized the necessity for changes within the team’s technical department. Coach Asare has been the longest-serving coach for the national amateur team.

“Coach Asare has been there for long and contributed his quota to the team, its time he makes way for another person to take over.

“He has been there for long. We need a new man with fresh ideas to revive the fortunes of the team,” Mr. Otoo Lartey stated. 

Mr. Lartey stated his intention to propose Charles Quartey as the next coach of the team to the Executive Committee. He believes that Quartey possesses the necessary qualifications to revamp and restructure the team.

“Charles Quartey is a competent coach and understands the latest trends in the sport. We would need him to take charge of the team,” he noted.

Despite having 12 boxers under Coach Asare’s guidance, the Black Bombers were unable to secure any Olympic qualifications during the Africa Championship. As a result, there is a growing demand for his removal. Nonetheless, the team will have another chance to pursue Olympic qualification in Italy next year.
