“For many years now Africa boxing has lacked visionary leadership that will take boxing in our continent to the next level, I will provide that with all my international connections and my financial capability.

“I’m very committed in my efforts to improve the overall management of Africa boxing, take care of the boxers’ welfare, empower coaches, R/Js, introduce more competitions and above all place more emphasis on junior and youth boxing which is my pet project.”
