Emmanuel Tagoe secured a knockout win over Sidicki Momba in the WBA Intercontinental Lightweight contest early Saturday morning.
The ‘Game Boy’ dazzled his Tanzanian opponent into succumbing to defeat after picking up an arm injury midway through Round 6 of the boxing bout staged by Asamoah Gyan’s Baby Jet Promotions.

Tagoe had dominated the fight until the decisive moment in Round 6 but Momba was not completely overawed.
The Tanzanian put up a spirited fight to excite the crowd at the Lawn Tennis Court of the Accra Sports Stadium which included a host of the Black Stars players.
Most of Momba’s rushed punches failed to land in his desperate attempt to impress.
Ex Ghana captain Stephen Appiah was at ring side.
But all his efforts came to null when he complained of an arm injury to the match referee who had no choice but to wave for the end of the fight.
The charged atmosphere around the venue was taken a notch further with the grand entry of Emmanuel Tagoe for his bout.
He arrived dancing in a hoisted palanquin in a traditional war smoke to signal his intent right from the start.
