GABA to shift to computerised scoring system

Accra, March 23, GNA – The Ghana Amateur Boxing Association (GABA) will soon make use of computerised scoring system during amateur boxing competitions to make boxers get acquainted to the new system in use at international competitions.

The equipment was donated to GABA by the Africa Boxing Council (ABC) as part of its efforts to promote the sport on the continent.

Mr Solomon Offei-Darko, Chairman of the GABA disclosed to the media on Friday when the Black Bombers presented medals they won at the African Boxing Confederation (ABC) Zone III Championships in Abidjan, Cote D’Ivoire to Prince Ernest Oduro-Mensah, Chief Executive Officer of the National Sports Council (NSC).

He said the Association will soon install the equipments for usage at competitions to get the boxers prepared for the All Africa Games in Algiers as well as the qualifiers for the next Olympics Games.

Ghana has for the past years been using manual system of scoring in amateur boxing competitions and this has been said to be one of the major factors behind the poor performance of amateur boxers in recent times.

The arrival of the equipment is therefore a major relief and a boost to amateur boxers in the country as it is expected to enhance their performance at local and international events.

Roberto Ivanez, trainer of the Bombers said the new scoring system will enhance performance of his team at international events.
