Local trainers bring the best out of Ghanaian boxers – Joseph Agbeko

Former International Boxing Federation (IBF) Champion, Joseph “the King Kong” Agbeko, has described the components of a good technical corner.

According to him, for Ghanaian boxers, when you have a local trainer in your corner, it brings some level of encouragement to you as a boxer.

“In any boxing match, you need some voices in your technical corner, some trainers who know you more, some trainers who are from Ghana and speak the local language so when you are down in the ring they can encourage you and motivate you in order to push harder,” he said.
