“No I’m not interested in the presidency”, Azumah told Rainbow Radio in Accra.
“Being GBA President does not guarantee world champions, but rather I will like to play a direct role like being the technical director, so as to polish them for the bigger stage,” he added.
Azumah Nelson is widely considered the greatest African boxer of all time. He held the WBC featherweight title once and the WBC super featherweight title twice.
