Ayittey Powers: Retirement is not in my plans

Ghanaian Boxer and current West African Light Heavyweight champion Michael Ayittey Powers is not ready to hang his gloves and will only do so when he is 45 years old.
The 34 year old Powers burst onto the boxing scene when he was named in Ghana’s All African Games Amateur boxing team that went to Morocco in 2004.
Although the tough talking boxer cum comedian is yet to fulfill his long time dream of winning a world title after an erratic boxing career, the Mamprobi born boxer says he will only hand his glove when he is 45 years old.
“I don’t know what I will do if I retire from boxing, which people will take care of my family and myself, so for me I want to become like Hopkins”.
“I want to stop fighting when I am 45 years old, at that time I will know my body won’t give me the chance to fight again because I will be weak”.
“Boxing is what I eat and what I want to do on any day, but before I retire I will win the world title because that is what I have been told by men of God”.
