In his message to the 29-year-old boxing prodigy, the Hon. Minister urged him to stay focused and not to under-estimate his opponent but rather go into the game with a positive mentality.
“I know you’ve got what it takes to be a world champion and so go all out to achieve the ultimate. I am very optimistic you can break the jinx of clinching a world title which seemed to have eluded us for some time now.” Hon. Nii Lantey Vanderpuye said.
The Hon. Minister also took the opportunity to wish the trainer and technical team of Richard Commey well, and to urge them to ensure that the boxer is well-conditioned and prepared physically, mentally and psychologically ahead of the fight.
