Awinongya Snr, a former boxer, now trainer said they were so excited to visit the motherland and meet all the nice famous dignitaries. He expressed that the tour has been very successful so far and the documentary which they are shooting on Ghana Boxing and his 14 year old son would be really packed with exclusive pictures of people, places and content.
