The Professor, Zoom -Zoom Nelson!
In his fighting days during the 1980s and 1990s, Ghanaian boxing legend Azumah Nelson’s thudding jabs and powerful overhands earned him the moniker “The Professor,” named for the lessons he’d teach opponents inside the ring.
A former three-time world champion, Nelson is often described as the best boxer to come out of the African continent.
When I was a child, we used to wait up until two and three in the morning to catch his fights live. Those were some pleasant memories. Hasn’t been a boxer of his calibre to come out of Ghana since.
