Brock Royal family founder supports Azumah mum’s funeral with cash, cows

The philanthropic Brock Royal family founder (Father) has presented an undisclosed amount of ‘huge’ cash donation and four fat cows to iconic boxer, Azumah Nelson.

The donation is to support the boxing legend to organise a befitting burial for his mother who passed on a few weeks ago.

The burial is scheduled for March 11, next month, and ac­cording to the Brock Royal family father, it will not be out of place to celebrate the deceased, Comfort Atwei Quarcoo, 86, taking into account the immense contribution her son (Azumah) to Ghana, Africa and the world at large.

Subsequently, the rich family father has proposed a state burial for the boxer’s mother.

“This is just a token to support the boxing professor to give his mother a befitting farewell.

“Azumah has done a lot for our country, took Ghana to the highest level in boxing – spanning over a decade. We can’t thank him enough. We believe this will help him to some extent give his mother a proper and a befitting funeral.

“The womb that produced such iconic figure should be celebrat­ed, hence this gesture; at least, he is alive to witness the support. I strongly believe that he will realise that it was worth dying for Gha­na,” said Akua Mirekua Nima­ko-Boateng, counsel for the family, after the donation.

The legendary boxer expressed profound appreciation to the Brock Royal family for the support, saying: “I really appreciate your support; it is a sign that Ghanaians and the Brock Royal family, indeed, love me. I appreciate the fact that you want to support me honour my late mother.

Certainly, a well-organised funer­al will make her happy wherever she is; and it takes families and people like you, and what you have done, to make that happen.”

Azumah, a former world cham­pion at three different weight divi­sions, reigned for over decade – one of the rare feats in boxing history.

He was inducted into the Inter­national Boxing of Fame on June 13, 2004 and he is considered the greatest African boxer of all-time.
