Boxing in Ghana has taken a nosedive recently but
Ghana’s legendary boxer Professor Azumah Nelson is of the great conviction that the sports will take a center stage in the sporting circles soon.
According to former WBC world super featherweight title holder, the level of boxing has declined but when the proper structures are put in place it will bounce back strongly.
He however believes it’s a matter of time and prayer coupled with some determination and investment into the sports to see most Ghanaian boxers become world champions.
“There is time for everything,it looks like boxing is coming down but it will get to a time it will rise again,God will bring us world champions when we pray and work hard”
He further entreated young boxers not to give up but work hard to realise their dreams to become world champions.
“The young ones should work hard and not give up,I know it’s not easy but it will end very well for them”
Azumah Nelson in his boxing career days fought 47 times wining 39 with 28 of them ending as a technical knockout in favour of him.
He lost 6 bout and drew twice.
He is seen as the beacon of boxing in the country as most young boxers in Ghana and beyond look up to him for greatness.
