Richard Commey calls for more investment more into boxing

Former International Boxing Federation (IBF) lightweight champion, Richard Commey, in an interview with GNA Sports called on corporate Ghana and the government to invest heavily in boxing to help produce more world champions for the nation.

“We have the talents and young people with the interest to venture into boxing but without the right investment, they would not be attracted to the sport and work at becoming world champions.”

“The Bukom Boxing Arena is a perfect example of investment in boxing. It is nice and has the needed equipment but we need more to produce quality boxers for the country.” He further stated

The former world champion criticised some of the investments made by corporate bodies in certain areas as he believes they would not bring any benefit to the nation.

“I don’t mean to denigrate any programme but I recently saw Ghana’s Strongest on television with a lot of sponsors. I wonder what benefit such a programme would bring to Ghana. They should come and invest in boxer rather; it would bring us more benefits. We have the chance to grab more titles for Ghana,” he appealed.
