1 min


Former boxing world champion, Joshua Clottey, has been arrested by police in Bukom for assaulting a footballer.

There seems to be a culture of impunity among some boxers in Ghana who think they can take their in-ring prowess into real life without consequences.

Bukom Banku has been in similar trouble many times and now, so has Clottey.

Clottey, a former IBF Welterweight Champion, allegedly assaulted Sylvester Ayitey-Adjin at the Bukom Park after the two got into a dispute.

Clottey reportedly beat Sylvester to a pulp leading to a police search for him which ended in his arrest.

He is expected to give his statement and to be released on bail but would probably go to trial as the family of the victim are intent on pressing charges.

Bukom Banku has caused many such assaults and he’s still walking around a free man so don’t hold your breath for any justice to be served in this case.

Clottey was one of the hardest punching boxers out of Ghana and fought his way to a world title but then lost his edge. He’s once infamously lost to Manny Pacquiao and later claimed it was due to a ‘runny stomach’.
