After compiling a record of 26–1 (13 KOs) he faced former world champion Mzonke Fana for the vacant IBO lightweight title on 2 December 2016 at the Bukom Boxing Arena in Accra. In a fight which saw Tagoe score two knockdowns in the first round, he went on to win via shutout unanimous decision (UD) with two judges scoring the bout 120–106 and the third scoring it 120–107. Fana collapsed in his corner after the final bell, requiring immediate medical attention from the ringside doctors. He was taken to the hospital before the results were announced.
