He said education of boxers is at his heart and want all boxers to achieve some level of education, so that they can be aware of the rules and regulations as well as discipline themselves.
Ataa Eddie Pappoe who also spoke to yours truly at the commissioning ceremony tasked SSNIT and the Boxing Authorities to maintain the facility so that it can test time. He said it should not be managed like the Accra Sports Stadium where everything is out of hand.
