Product Description

The Professor is the official biography of three time world champion, Azumah Nelson. Available as a paperback it tells Nelson’s story in 15 detailed chapters (269 pages) spanning his career and key personal moments.

Born the year after his home nation of Ghana gained independence, Azumah Nelson played a major part in putting this new country on the world map.

A glittering amateur career saw him win every title except an Olympic medal, as Ghana boycotted the 1980 Games when he was a favourite to win. After turning professional, he took a last-minute bout for the world title with the great Salvador Sanchez, a bout that changed his life.

“I interviewed Azumah for a documentary on is life. He always wanted to tell his life story and I was privileged that he asked me to do it. I remember watching him fight on television when I was growing up in England, so to be asked to catalogue his life was incredibly special” – Ashley Morrison
