The boxing authority is prepared to support the fighter, but he must first let them know if he wants to compete as a Ghanaian, according to GBA President Abraham Kotei Neequaye.
“We are not supposed to call him. He should reach out to us if he wants to fight as a Ghanaian, we are ready to support him,” he told Accra-based Angel FM.
Last Saturday, the boxer from the UK competed in just his second professional match, which was on the undercard of Joe Joyce vs. Zhilei Zhang. At the Copper Box Arena in London, MacBones faced veteran Darryl Sharp and thoroughly dominated him.
Despite his unpolished style, he defeated Sharp with a combination of forceful blows and aggression. The fight’s highlights have now gone popular on social media, and many Ghanaians have praised MacBones’ boxing technique.

The 33-year-old, who was a mason in Ghana before relocating to the UK, has since changed his life.
“I worked so hard toward my dreams and I never give up. I never let anyone let me down. I put myself to the limit. I don’t sleep, I’m running four o’clock, three o’clock like a madman,” MacBones said after winning Sharp.
“People see me like, what’s this guy doing? And now this is the answer for those people that were asking me those questions. And I’m so proud of myself, my mum, and my family back home. There are all watching me and I made them proud because I come nothing.”
“A place there was no light, there was no water, nothing there and I see myself with one of the biggest promotions in the world, Queensberry. Come on bro, there is a God. Whatever result happened there, I don’t care. I see myself as a winner no matter what,” he added.
