I feel very honoured by Ghanaians, says Azumah Nelson

In a career spanning 28 years and six months, Nelson who recently turned 65 years fought 47 times with 39 wins, two draws and six losses

Ghanaian boxing legend, Azumah Nelson, has said he feels extremely honoured by Ghanaians after hanging his gloves.

In a career spanning 28 years and six months, Nelson who recently turned 65 years fought 47 times with 39 wins, two draws and six losses. Twenty-eight of those wins came by way of knockout.

He was a two-weight world champion, having held the WBC featherweight title from 1984 to 1987, and the WBC super-featherweight title twice between 1988 and 1997.

Among some of his accolades were also winning gold medals at the Commonwealth Games and African Games in 1978, before going on to win the Amateur Boxer of the Year at the Sports Writers Association of Ghana awards in the same year.

Appearing on the Asaase Breakfast Show on Wednesday (26 July) Nelson said: “I think I’ve been honoured well in life. As far as God is happy, I’m happy.”

“Boxing is an art, and like everything, the more you do it, the more experienced you become. I am more than a happy man. When I see people happy, I’m happy. I always want to see people happy,” Azumah added.
