Nii Yarboi Annan Calls On Media And Companies To Support Boxing In Africa

Mr Michael Nii Yarboi Annan, CEO of Don’s Promotions has appealed to the sports media to apportion some airtime and space to promote boxing in Africa.

Speaking at the Press Conference to promote ‘The Battle for Supremacy’, he said boxing has much entertainment and business to offer Africa if the right things and right people come on board.

He noted that Ghana and other African nations have gifted boxers who must be aided to become world champions and it can be possible if funds are pumped into the sport.

According to Mr Annan, Don’s Promotions has come to take boxing to a higher level and very soon their promotions would be taking them to Nigeria, South Africa and Tanzania.

He said boxing can be a venture to make people rich and happy if it is well organized as there are also good trainers and officials on the continent of Africa.

He expressed that Don’s Promotions has not come to monopolise the game, but to complement and add upon the past glories and achievements by making things better and well.

He expressed that very soon Ghana is going to get new world champions and that is the reason why he has decided to manage disciplined boxers and raise them to champion’s status.

He urged more business people to invest in boxing by partnering or sponsoring promotions and the media must support in that direction.
