It has come to my attention that in a recent interview I may have caused offence to the GBA and others in the
boxing fraternity by using certain words which now I realize were inappropriate.
I wish to apologize to the GBA and to all concerned. I realize that in my position as a role model to many I have
to be mindful of my actions.
In future I will refrain from airing certain views in public and deal with them diplomatically and appropriately.
There are certain things that I am unhappy with and on my return to Ghana along with my team we will deal with
them in the correct way.
