Launching Zoom Zoom Clinics Is Azumah Nelson

Legendary boxer Azumah Nelson, also referred to as “The Professor,” opened his eagerly awaited “Zoom Zoom Clinics” in Accra, Ghana, on Thursday, July 4. Named after one of Nelson’s aliases, the boxing and mentorship organization aims to empower and uplift young people nationwide, going beyond only boxing.

Nelson’s late trainer, Attuquaye Clottey, was warmly honored at the event. The Hall of Famer Nelson highlighted how much of an influence Clottey had on his career, giving him credit for helping to mold him into a world champion both inside and outside the ring.

The Ghana Boxing Federation and GCB Bank are partners in the Zoom Zoom Clinics, which aim to carry on Clottey’s legacy. Nelson sees himself serving as a mentor to others, imparting the work ethic and self-control that enabled him to succeed.

At the launch, Nelson said, “We all need mentors.” Regardless of the course they take, he emphasized the value of mentoring young people to become future leaders. He clarified that the clinics’ goal is to provide young people with life lessons that will help them have prosperous futures.

The program’s target audience is young people (12–18 years old). Nelson will personally visit Tamale, Kumasi, Takoradi, and Accra, according to Project Lead Yaw Sakyi, to engage with kids in elementary and senior high schools. These classes, which begin in Tamale on July 12th, will center on fundamental principles that apply to both the ring and daily life, such as self-control, tenacity, and the value of hard work.

The government has been quite supportive of the effort. Mustapha Ussif, the Minister of Youth and Sports, commended the clinics for their emphasis on developing talent, encouraging self-discipline, and using sports to promote general well-being. He praised Nelson’s commitment to encouraging young athletes and giving back, describing it as an example for everyone.

Mr. Ussif said, “This initiative will definitely unearth new talents and potentially future champions,” and he spoke for the ministry. He underlined how the initiative fits in with their goal of helping young Ghanaians reach their full sporting potential.

The view was also expressed by Mr. Socrates Afram, Deputy Managing Director of GCB Bank. Praiseing Nelson’s dedication to youth development, he described the Zoom Zoom Clinics as an expression of his strong ties to the neighborhood. He said, “GCB Bank is proud to be associated with this initiative,” which precisely aligns with the bank’s objectives of investing in and supporting Ghana’s youth for the future.

There will be more to the Zoom Zoom Clinics than just boxing instruction. Motivated by his own mentor, Azumah Nelson is committed to making a lasting difference by influencing and enabling the upcoming generation of Ghanaian leaders.
