Commey has been busy since returning to the country for his holiday from calling on corporate Ghana and the government to invest heavily in the sport 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.”
