Ghana boxing legend Azumah Nelson loses mother


Ghana boxing legend Azumah Nelson has lost his mother Comfort Atwei Quarcoo, the family announced on Tuesday.

A statement issued by the family said she died on Monday 2 January 2023 at age 86.

Quarcoo died peacefully at her home after a short illness.

“The Bible says in all things we should give thanks to God, so we thank the Almighty for this one too,” Azumah said in the statement.

“I spent time with her three days ago and could tell she was in pain so I know she is at peace now. After raising her children well and seeing her grandchildren, she has done very well and deserves some rest. This is a celebration of life.”

Details of the funeral will be announced later.

Nelson is a three-time World Boxing Champion, 2004 Boxing Hall of Fame inductee, Africa’s greatest boxer and WBC’s greatest super featherweight boxer of all-time. He was also inducted in the Nevada Boxing Hall of Fame in August 2022.
