THE director of Grants Betting Ltd, Peter McCoy is hoping one of the local television companies will telecast a live coverage of Joseph Kwadjo's match against Shalva Jomardashvili next month.
Ghanaian born Kwadjo will line up the Georgian in a super middleweight clash at the Accra Sports Stadium in Ghana. In a statement to Times Sport, McCoy said it would be great fight when the orthodox boxer takes the stage in front of 40,000 spectators.
"I hope that one of the TV companies should try to bring this fight live here," he said. He hopes Kwadjo will get Fijian citizenship so all his fights can be under the Fiji flag. "Kwadjo can be the next gold medallist for Fiji if he is given a chance," McCoy said.
