Black Bombers, Pro Fighting Factory show appreciation to Nyanyo Nmai

Members of the Black Bombers, the national boxing team, and the Pro Fighting Factory Gym in Accra, have shown appreciation to the ‘massive’ donation received from Swiss-based Ghanaian WBC Muay Thai champion, Lawrence Nii Nyanyo Nmai.

President of the Ghana Boxing Federation (GBF), George Lamptey, who received the items from Nii Adote Dzata 1, former president of Ghana Kickboxing Association, presented them to the national boxers, while Isaac Doku, coach of the Pro Fighting Factory also gave to his athletes.

Items presented included bags of rice, gari, bread, cooking oil and crates of eggs.

Wahid Omar, who received on behalf of the boxers, said they were happy and wished Nmai all the best in his endeavours.

Coach Ofori Asare, technical director of the Black Bombers, was excited at the gesture, saying “it came at the right time when we were in need after the partial lockdown.”

Olympic Games 2020-bound Samuel Takyi, as well as female boxer Faruza Osman, noted that they had learned a lot from the presentation and thanked the donor, wishing him God’s guidance and blessings.

Jonathan Euro, the 2018 SWAG Kick Boxer of the Year, said they have been inspired by the presentation, and promised to rededicate themselves to the club and sport. He promised that they would train harder for future tournaments, as the COVID-19 has hampered their opportunities in the year.

For his part, the ASC African MMA champion, Isaac Commey, took to his Facebook wall, stating: “You won’t understand God; he does everything his own time. I love what you did for us the fighters. Mr Lawrence Nyanyo Nmai, May God guide and bless you.”

He advised sportsmen and women not to lose hope, but keep on training as they observe the social distancing. He urged them to focus on the future as there were great prospects ahead.

Team Manager of the Pro Fighting Factory, Michael Amanor, said they were touched by the fact that no one thought about the less-financed sports men and women who contribute a lot to the socio economic development and promotion of the nation at international levels.

He said if footballers were playing their part, boxers and kick boxers also have to support as he commended Nii Nyanyo Nmai, who doubles as President of Pro Fighting Factory, for his immense love for mankind.
