Joseph Agbeko Volta region boxing

Former two-time boxing champion Joseph Agbeko has expressed his disappointment with the lack of respect and recognition he gets in the boxing community because of his tribe.

The boxer believes that he hasn’t gotten the respect and recognition he deserves because of his background. Agbeko has held IBF bantamweight twice one in 2007 and in 2009.

While speaking on JoySports, he said “The boxing community does not appreciate me, love me or treat me like how they do to the other boxers.

“I don’t know if it’s because I am from the Volta region.”

He revealed that his picture wasn’t added to Ghana’s Hall of Fame for Boxing Champions at the Bukom Boxing Arena despite his achievements.

Even with the Bukom Boxing Arena, there’s a place where they have pictures of all of Ghana’s champions – [mine is not there].”

“Joseph Agebko was not a fighter who won only one world title. When you look at Ghana’s champions from DK Poison, Azumah Nelson and everyone, if you want to mention three or four great champions out of the 10, you will mention my name because I am a two-time world champion.

“Azumah is a three-time world champion, Nana Konadu also won a world title about twice – I am behind those great fighters,” Agbeko said.
