Manyo Plange Aims To Land Rigondeaux or Gary Antonio Russell

Experienced boxing consultant, Yoofi Boham has tipped Ghanaian boxer Jesse Manyo Plange for a world title very soon after he moved up to the second spot on the latest World Boxing Association (WBA) ratings.

He said with the support of his manager, Tony Tojl, who is based in Australia, they are managing affairs well to get the boxers in top shape before he cracks at the title held by experienced champion Guillermo Rigondeaux of Cuba or Gary Antonio Russell, one of the fine boxers in the division and currently situated at #1.

Since Plange, 32 moved up to number 2 with the WBC, his confidence has soured and he has stepped up his training.

He has won all his 20 bouts with a draw in a fight which he feels he won against Michael Dasmarinas at the Marina Bay Sands Hotel in Singapore.

Plange, ex-captain of the national amateur boxing team, the Black Bombers, is one of the most loved boxers in his country and many Ghanaians believe he can become a world champion.

According to Boham, they are going to make him one of the legends of Ghana Boxing. He thanked Dr. Arthur, John Marfo and others who have supported the budding champion.

In an exclusive chat with the West Australian, Tolj said Plange is on the list of 60 boxers whom they are managing and promoting with the goal of becoming a world champion.

Plange won silver at the 2007 All-Africa Games and participated at the 2008 Summer Olympic Games and the 2006 Commonwealth Games.

He was recently voted best Boxer in Ghana for 2020.
