Appreciating the rousing welcome accorded him, talented Joseph Awinongya Junior, exhorts young Ghanaians to be focused on their dreams, promising to help raise sports, particularly boxing in Ashaiman.

“I will build a boxing gym in Ashaiman to unearth young desiring talented boxers in the municipality. I urge young Ghanaians to pursue their dreams seriously with hard work which is my secret and they will surely achieve thier goals” he stressed.

Asked which boxer he looks up to, Joseph Awinongya Junior said, “I don’t aspire to be like any boxer, but to couch my own niche as one of the greatest boxers ever and showcase Ashaiman and Ghana to the world”

Father of the emerging boxer, Joseph Awinongya Senior, hinted that team Awinongya among other plans to unearth talents in Ashaiman, Ghana and across Africa through sports seeks to institute a boxing exchange programme between Ghana and America to produce more boxers for the country.

The Regent of Ashaiman, Nii Anang Adjor, on his part expressed discontent at the seeming neglect of Ashaiman in the establishment of sporting facilities across Ghana, in spite of talents the municipality has churned out in the sport spheres as well as its contribution to the overall contribution to national development.

The Ashaiman Regent promised that his outfit will liaise with team Awinongya to actualize his vision through the delivery of sports facilities in Ashaiman.
