He revealed that Freezy MacBones, actual name Seth Gyimah, came to the GBA for a license when he wanted to start boxing but decided to fight as a UK national at the last minute.

“We sent him a message. And they can check it from Freezy himself. Before he fought in the UK, he came to Ghana to get a Ghana Boxing Authority license,” Neequaye told Romeo TV.

“He came for our license but when he wanted to fight and they wanted to get a release letter from us, he changed it to fight for the British. He was supposed to come for a release letter from us but he said he wanted to fight as UK national.”

Freezy Macbones used to be a mason in Ghana before moving to the UK, where he has now turned his life around.

His rise has been the archetypal grass-to-grace story and he’s been deservedly trending on social media after he roared to victory in his latest bout.

In April, the 33-year-old boxer competed in his second professional fight as the undercard to Joe Joyce vs. Zhilei Zhang.

MacBones absolutely beat veteran Darryl Sharp in the Copper Box Arena in London.

Despite his raw style, he coupled strong punches with aggression to win a unanimous decision over Sharp. Highlights from the battle went viral on social media, with many Ghanaians praising MacBones’ aggressive boxing technique.

Meanwhile, the GBA President insists there’s nothing the boxing association can do if the boxer doesn’t want to represent Ghana.

“If the person has our license and he wants to fight and then puts our license down and picks another license to fight under that license, how do you expect me to go and beg this gentleman to come, no. We have a lot of boxers here that we need to develop,” Neequaye added.

Freezy Macbones is set to return to the ring again on June 16.
