The Ministry of Youth and Sports, on Wednesday, handed over government’s promised brand new Toyota Corolla car to Ghana’s latest world champion Richard Commey.
The presentation was done by Deputy Sports Minister Perry Okudjeto in fulfillment of President Nana Akufo-Addo’s promise following his recent IBF Lightweight world title triumph over Russian boxer Isa Chaniev.
The president earlier rewarded him with GHC50, 000 for his achievement.
Commey upon receiving the gift said the gesture from the government motivates him to sacrifice more for the country.
“I am very grateful to the Ministry of Youth and Sports and President Nana Addo for this wonderful gift.
“I wasn’t expecting something like this at all; this really makes me want to sacrifice more for the nation.
“I think this is going to be an example to the young boxers coming up. They should work hard and win world titles and receive gifts like this,” he said.
