The GBA sent a letter to the boxer on Tuesday to face the Disciplinary Committee of the GBA on Wednesday, February 5.

He is expected to answer charges of professional misconduct, as he is bared from fighting outside the ring.

Allotey is likely to face a minimum of one year ban by the GBA, as well as a possible revocation of his license.

The boxer has since rendered an unqualified apology to the fan and the entire nation.
