He expressed his dedication to fostering a new generation of prominent boxers, especially from Bukom, an area in Accra known for producing boxing talent.

Powers called for support for the event, promising an unforgettable experience.

According to him, investing in boxing was worthwhile, add­ing that he was very hopeful that ‘Power of the Fists’ would be an unforgettable experience.
