Samuel Anim-Addo, Chief Executive Officer of Baby Jet Promotions, has confirmed to Citi Sports that his outfit is on the verge of signing Bastie Samir and George Ashie.
According to Anim-Addo, talks between the parties have reached an advanced stage, and an announcement could be made in the coming days.
“Baby Jet Promotions will be announcing the signing of Bastie Samir and George Ashie soon and an official announcement could be made in the coming days,” he told Citi Sports.
“We are focused on signing the best boxers and that is what we have started doing.”
Samir stole headlines when he stopped Bukom Banku in their bout last October at Bukom Boxing Arena. He will join IBO World lightweight champion Emmanuel Tagoe at Baby Jet Promotions. Baby Jet Promotions is a boxing promotional company owned by Black Stars captain Asamoah Gyan.
Samir (16-0-1, 15 KOs), is expected to return to the ring on January 27th versus Tanzania and East & Central Africa Professional Boxing Federation Super Middleweight champion, Benson Mwakyembe, (11-3-1, 6 KOs) of Tanzania. The bout will be on the undercard of the Emmanuel ‘Game Boy’ Tagoe and Fernando David Saucedo bout.
