Boxing legend, “Professor” Azumah Nelson, will launch his biography titled, “The Professor — The Life Story of Azumah Nelson”, on Wednesday, October 29,  at the Alisa Hotel, Ridge, at 6p.m.

The event comes on the heels of a successful launch of the 278-page book in Australia last month, after the Ghana launch was postponed last July following the death of Mr Paul Victor Obeng, the Board Chairman of the Azumah Nelson Foundation (ANF).

The ceremony will be graced by distinguished personalities, including ex-Presidents Jerry John Rawlings, John Agyekum Kufuor and representatives from the World Boxing Council (WBC).

According to a statement issued by the foundation, “The book authored by Australian journalist, Ashley Morrison, chronicles the life of Africa’s greatest boxer of all time and Hall of Famer; his best and worst moments, wins and losses and the secrets to his enviable career record”.

The statement added that proceeds from the book launch would go into the first phase of construction of the ANF Complex, a multi-purpose sports academy to be established at Akuse.
