GHANA’S Goodwill Sports Ambassador and a Life Patron of the Sports Writers Association of Ghana (SWAG), Ray Quarcoo, turned 81 yesterday.
The former Ghana Amateur Boxing Federation president’s immense contribution to the development of boxing in the country impacted the careers of World Champions like-Azumah Nelson, Ike Quartey, Alfred Kotey, Clottey brothers-Joshua and Emmanuel, Joseph Agbeko, Isaac Dogboe among others.
Celebrating the milestone on a low key, he would be joined by his family and few close friends for a buffet launch in Accra.
He said on Saturday that “I thank God for adding one more year to the many he has given me. I have done my bit as far as developing boxing in the country is concerned, but I think there is more to do. The sport is dying and should be revived,” he asserted, in a statement to mark his birthday.
