Mother of Ghanaian boxing legend Azumah Nelson, Comfort Atwei Quarcoo, died yesterday Monday, January 2 2023 at age 86. Madam Comfort, who has been ill for some time now, passed on peacefully at home.


Expressing how he feels about the passing of his mother, Azumah Nelson said the bible says in all things we should give thanks to God so we thank the almighty for this one too. I spent time with her 3-days ago and could tell she was in pain so I know she is at peace now. After raising her children and seeing her grandchildren, she has done well and deserves some rest. This is a celebration of life.


Azumah asked that Ghanaians keep him and his family in their prayers. Details of the funeral will be announced in due time.


Azumah Nelson is a 3-Time World Boxing Champion, 2004 Boxing Hall of Fame inductee, Africa’s Greatest Boxer and WBCs Greatest Super featherweight Boxer of All-Time. He was also inducted into the Nevada Boxing Hall of Fame in August 2022.
