Boxing legend, Azumah Nelson, has advised Olympic bronze medalist, Samuel Takyi, to leave Ghana for the United States of America to realise his dreams.
Azumah Nelson, arguably Ghana's greatest boxer, believes Takyi needs good counsel and the best place to see his career blossom will be in the US.
In an interview with Graphic Sports, the former world champion, explained the 20-year-old should come to him for some good advise about his career.
“I fear for Takyi because he doesn’t have good advisors. He is not well counseled; he must run to me now and I will give him a great future career,” Azumah Nelson told the Graphic Sports.

“What is Takyi doing in Ghana, boxing is done in America; he should quickly move to America. He must call me and I will link him up with top American boxing managers and promoters.
“Everyone wants to get a bite of him but he must sit down and think very well about his future. I can help him if he reaches out to me."
Azumah Nelson has revealed his desire to help the young pugilist if he is ready to come to him for advise.
