It’s because I’m from Volta Region that’s why I’m not respected – Joseph Agbeko

Joseph Agbeko, the former two-time world boxing champion, has expressed his frustration with the lack of recognition and respect he feels he receives from the Ghanaian boxing community.×250&!2&fsb=1&xpc=OMqd8wR4sJ&p=https%3A//

Despite his impressive boxing record, which includes holding the IBF bantamweight title twice and winning the WBC International bantamweight title, Agbeko believes that his background may be the reason for his perceived lack of appreciation.

Speaking to JoySports, Agbeko stated, “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 added that his picture was not included in the collection of Ghana’s champions at the Bukom Boxing Arena.×250&!3&btvi=1&fsb=1&xpc=kkh2Ry9N0C&p=https%3A//

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

Agbeko has fought in 43 matches, winning 38 with 28 being knockout victories, while he has suffered five defeats.

“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.

“I have achieved a lot in boxing so there is no way anybody should put up pictures of fighters who have achieved for Ghana, and they wouldn’t think of Joseph Agbeko.”
