2 Min Read

The customized boxing training equipment from multiple award-winning boxing managers, Peter Kahn was presented by Pastor Henry and Ohene Ameyaw, co-manager of the WBO titlist.

Sammy Anim Addo CEO of the Bronx Boxing Promotions said as Laryea moves to a different phase of his career it is important that he is encouraged and motivated. He thanked Peter Kahn

He said John Laryea also known as ‘The Expensive Boxer’ has been the African champion of WBO for some time and is now rated at number 14, but his managers want him to move closer to the world title, hence they have arranged an opportunity to train and possibly have a fight in the USA.

According to Anim Addo, boxing is a very dicey sport as things can change within seconds and wants Laryea to know the culture and temperature of the US before undertaking any major fight.

Coach Carl Lokko supported the idea of moving Laryea to the United States where he will train with journeymen and rated boxers.

“It would be an exciting moment for Abaja to be in the USA, we are looking towards it,” he said.

Ohene Ameyaw, co-manager of Laryea said experience is the best teacher, and hopes the WBO Africa king will learn more in the USA.

He noted that Ghana winning seven medals in boxing at the African Games has revived the sport in the Bukom, James Town area in Accra.
