Ghanaian boxer, Emmanuel ‘Game Boy’ Tagoe has threatened to physically assault outspoken sports presenter, Country Man Songo for defaming his Chief Executive officer, Asamoah Gyan and himself.
The BabayJet Promotions signee, who fumed with anger said he will beat the firebrand sports presenter to pulp, wherever he meets him.
Tagoe in an interview with Rainbow Radio, described Country Man Songo as a mentally challenged man who smokes Indian hemp.
“THAT COUNTRY MAN SONGO WHO SITS ON RADIO AND TELEVISION TO INSULT PEOPLE WITH THE AIM OF ENTERTAINING PEOPLE; HE SPEAKS ANYHOW AND ATTACK PEOPLE WITHOUT RESPECT.
“IF MY BOSS BABAYJET DUE TO RESPECT HAS NOT RESPONDED TO HIS UTTERANCES DUE TO HIS [BABYJET’S] LEVEL; IF HE INSULTS THE LIKES OF THE COACH OF THE BLACK STARS AND THEY DON’T MIND HIM, HE SHOULD NOT BRING THAT TO MY DOORSTEP.
“WE THE BOXERS ARE CRAZIER THAN HE [SONGO] IS. HE SHOULD NOT BE INSULTING ME ON HIS SHOW AND CLAIM THAT I AM NOT STRONG. IF I AM WEAK, CAN HE FIGHT ME? WE THE BOXERS ARE CRAZIER THAN HE IS.
“I’LL NOT ENTERTAIN HIS INSULTS. HE SMOKES WEE TO BEHAVE THE WAY HE DOES AND ASIDE THAT, HE GETS PEOPLE TO SUPPORT HIM. HE SHOULD CONCENTRATE ON THE BLACK STARS, HE SHOULD NOT DO THAT TO BOXERS.
“I DON’T BLAME HIM; I BLAME THOSE WHO GAVE HIM THE OPPORTUNITY TO HOST THEIR SHOW. I WILL BEAT HIM WHEREVER I MEET HIM,” EMMANUEL TAGOE TOLD RAINBOW RADIO.
Country Man Songo according to media reports, challenged the promoters to find the boxer a stronger opponent to challenge him.
Emmanuel Tagoe subsequently warned the presenter to stop attacking him verbally since he was not one of those he’s been attacking on his show.
He said, the presenter who thrives on sensationalism and denigrates people should not use Emmanuel Tagoe as one of those personalities he attacks.
