Boxing legend Azumah Nelson climaxed his 60th birthday celebration with five explosive bouts headlined by a scheduled 12 round claw between National Super featherweight titleholder Abraham Osei Bonsu and Patrick Ayi.

Nelson who turned 60 on Thursday arrived at the Bukom Boxing Arena on Saturday night in style, relaxing at the back of his famous white stretch limousine which he told Graphic Online that he purchased in the 1990s to inspire sportsmen.

He was greeted with cheers as men, women and children of all ages gathered around the vehicle which is still in great condition.

The iconic vehicle has been parked at the entrance and greets patrons as they troop in to watch the fights organised by the Azumah Nelson Boxing Promotion syndicate.
