WBO Africa Super welterweight champion, Patrick Allotey says he regrets his actions after he was captured in a viral video assaulting a fan on Sunday at the Accra Sports Stadium.
In a statement available to Jupdateafrica.com, Patrick Allotey accepted responsibility for his actions and apologised to the victim of the assault, Michael Siaw Agyemang.
“Much as I can confirm that I am the one in the video, I wish to state that I am very ashamed of my actions as a professional boxer and truly regret my actions. I therefore take this opportunity to render an unqualified apology to Michael Siaw. I am mostly the reserved type who will hardly talk in public but this time around I don’t know what emotions came upon me. I am truly sorry”.
“Myself, my team and some family members have further taken steps to reach out to ‘my brother’ Michael Siaw and his family and are deliberating on how to remedy the situation. It is rather unfortunate that a simple game of football can ignite such a passion in me to do what I did, but that is to say I am human and I admit so without feeling right about what I did. I wish to plead for everyone’s forgiveness and to reach out to my fans to join me in apologizing to all Ghanaians the rest of the world”.
