According to Mr Foh-Amoaning, boxing is a show business, and all the pomp and pageantry must be brought on board to give fans something to talk about.

He said the league will be spiced with entertainment, food and fashion by well trained cooks, designers, models and underground musicians.

D.K. Poison urged Ghanaians to come to the arena to watch the future champions and endorse the concept.

Mr George Lamptey, the GBF president was hopeful that through the event, new talented designers, artistes and models would emerge on the scene and stressed that the league would create employment opportunities for many.
