Freezy MacBones changes nationality from Ghana to the United Kingdom
Boxer Freezy MacBones has changed his nationality from Ghana to the United Kingdom (UK), according to the Ghana Boxing Authority (GBA).
According to GBA President Abraham Neequaye, the boxer changed his nationality just before his professional debut.
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 left a message for him. And they can confirm that with Freezy himself. “He came to Ghana to get a Ghana Boxing Authority license before fighting in the UK,” Neequaye told Romeo TV.
“He came for our license, but when he wanted to fight and they needed a release letter from us, he changed his mind and went to fight for the British.” He was supposed to come to us for a release document, but he stated he wanted to fight as a British national.”
Freezy Macbones was a mason in Ghana before moving to the United Kingdom, where he has since turned his life around.
His ascension has been the prototypical grass-to-grace narrative, and he’s been rightfully trending on social media after roaring to victory in his most recent fight.
Recovery ❤️🩹 time

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.
It's never too late to be great.

Meanwhile, the GBA President believes that the boxing organisation has little recourse if the boxer refuses to represent Ghana.
“How do you expect me to go and beg this gentleman to come if he has our license and wants to fight and then puts our license down and picks another license to fight under?” “We have a lot of boxers here who need to be developed,” Neequaye continued.
Freezy Macbones will return to the ring on June 16.
