Ghana’s Emmanuel Tagoe, could be handed the opportunity to fight in an eliminator in the World Boxing Council (WBC) Lightweight division, against Ryan Garcia following several moves made within the WBC one hundred and thirty five pound rankings.
With a Diamond title fight set, an interim title fight was ordered and a voluntary defense was granted to its unbeaten world champion Devin Haney, whilst the International Boxing Federation is prepared to line up a mandatory challenger in waiting for the winner of a forthcoming three-belt unification bout between WBA/WBO lightweight titlist Vasiliy Lomachenko and IBF title claimant Teofimo Lopez
Ghana’s Emmanuel Tagoe is a little further down in the current WBO rankings.
The lightweight boxer was the number-one contender last May, remaining as such for three months until leapfrogged by Lopez who was already committed to fight for the IBF title by that point.
Tagoe has won 31 straight since losing his pro debut more than 16 years ago, including four fights carrying WBO sanctioning.
