Ghana boxing legend, Azumah Nelson has denied holding talks about establishing an airline in the country.
Reports were rife in the media that the national hero had completed discussions with the Ghana Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) – the aviation industry regulator – about establishing his own commercial airline.
But speaking to starrsportsgh.com’s Betty Yawson, the 59-year-old, described the reports as untrue.
“Don’t mind them, it is not true,” he said.
“It is not true. That Information is not true [sic],” Azumah stressed.
Azumah Nelson is widely considered the greatest African boxer of all time, having held the WBC featherweight title once and the WBC super featherweight title twice.
The false reports came on the back of the news that Black Stars captain, Asamoah Gyan, has secured an Air Carrier License (ACL) and is working to secure an Air Operators Certificate (AOC) before launching his airline – Baby Jet Airlines.
