Asamoah Gyan forfeited a boxing bout against Joshua Clottey which he started on Monday afternoon. The 26-year-old challenged the former IBF Welterweight Champion after both men touted their fighting credentials. An imaginary ring was immediately set by the two to commence proceedings just outside the Golden Tulip Hotel where a host of professional footballers and entertainment celebrities lodged over the weekend.
The Al Ain striker who emerged the Goal King in the UAE Pro League with 22 goals however took to his heels after realizing there was no possibility of outwitting his opponent who has been boxing almost all his life. The duo however engineered an exciting atmosphere during the bout while it lasted before jumping into their posh cars to set off to Accra after the successful end of this year’s Soccer Fiesta which was again won by the Black Stars select side which had Ghana FA Ex.Co member George Afriyie as its coach.
