Ike Quartey: I’m not a drug addict

The former professional boxer denies he is into drugs contrary to reports in a section of the media

The former World Boxing Association (WBA) welterweight titlist, Ike ‘Bazooka’ Quartey has reacted to media publications about his recent looks compared to his youthful days.

Responding to suggestions in some media publications that he was on drugs hence his recent looks, Quartey said, “no I don’t do that, and I will never do that.”

“I’m not a drug addict,” he said in a television interview with Metro TV.

“I am not happy at all about the publicity at all. You know, I will ask my lawyer to sue this media which published this news because it is a bad news.”

“You know if somebody has brought you some news, you have to call me, ask me, or proofread or do something before publishing it.”

“Without telling anybody, like they want to bring my name down or spoiling my name but this name I made it long time. I use my life to make this name.”

“I’ll sue”

“I will sue anybody who is involved. From here I’m going to see my lawyer, we gonna sue anybody who is involved. People were calling me ‘Ike, Ike,’ are you a drug addict? I’m not a drug addict, I’m a celebrity of this nation, why are you putting this on my name,” he fumed in the TV interview.

“I don’t do that and I’m not gonna do that too because I love my children, I love my wife too. I have businesses taking care of why drugs,” he added.

Quartey said he was concentrating on his businesses and was committed to building a dream hospital for the nation.

“I am trying to do something for the nation and now look at what you are trying to do to my name.”
