This time round, Accra is hosting the fight over the vacant International Boxing Organization (IBO) bantamweight title between Joseph Kingkong Agbeko of Ghana and Luis Melendez of Columbia on Sunday as the Columbian had already arrived in the West African country for the debut.

Agbeko, who lost twice to the unbeaten Mexican WBC lightweight champion Abner Mares in 2011, is poised to win the title to become world title holder again on Sunday.

The Columbian that has total record fights of 43, with 34 wins, 24 knockouts and eight losses and one draw is expected to hold a press conference in Accra later on Wednesday.

On other hand, the Ghanaian boxer, who recorded 32 fights, with 28 wins with 22 of them on knockouts and four losses, has trained so hard to regain his lost glory in the boxing arena.

Meanwhile, the media has begun wide publicity on the fight to whip up interest of Ghanaians in the world boxing debut in Accra on Sunday.
