A 10-member contingent of kick boxers and officials will leave the shores of Ghana for Morocco to participate in the Africa Kick boxing championship.
The week-long tourney will bring together 15 other countries to vie for honours in the sport that has taken the continent by storm.
All fighting from the Pro Fighting Factory gym, the fighters are in high spirit with some hoping to earn their biggest medal from the competition.
Fighters making the trip include Jonathan E-uro, Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) welterweight champion Isaac Commey, Steven Bruce, Francis Dodoo, Daniel Boateng and Ebenezer Adjei.
President of the Ghana Kick boxing Federation (GKbF), Nii Adotey Dzata I (Joseph Adotey Mingle) Sempe Sakaman Mankralo will lead the delegation.
Other officials accompanying the team include Head Coach, Nii Yemo Yemoson, and Assistant Coach Isaac Doku and kick boxing referee, Isaac Doku.
Nii Yemo told the Times Sports the team was ready for the championship and was confident to return with some medals.
He urged government to show interest in some of the new sports that seem to be gaining grounds in the country since that is the surest ways to promote sports and get the youth out of the streets.
