President of the Ghana Boxing Authority (GBA), Mr. Abraham Kotei Neequaye, says the investments made in boxing over the years have always paid good returns for the country.
He argued that boxing is the only sporting discipline that has won Ghana several titles compared to the other disciplines.
Speaking on Rainbow Sports, ”it is only boxing that has brought us world titles. Look at DK Poison, whose victory brought a lot of opportunities, and the state had to borrow his money to address a national crisis. Azuma Nelson, one person, wore the flag of Ghana all over. Ike Quartey, Joshua Clottey, and the others have all paid their dues for the country”.
He stated that every government investment in boxing has produced positive results. They have also reaped significant benefits from corporate sponsorship. IMAX Group of Companies, TCL, Tecno, Soccer Bet and Renault are just a few examples. Following their investments in boxing, all of these companies have achieved the expected results. They will not continue to support us if they have not received any returns”.
He went on to say that Renault had provided them with four vehicles for administrative purposes.
He thanked all of their corporate sponsors for their support over the years, emphasising how it has aided in the transformation of the sector.
