A former national welterweight champion Isaac Aryee needs GH₵14,000 to undergo surgery on a broken neck, the Ghana Boxing Authority (GBA) has disclosed.
Aryee was allegedly knocked down while riding a motorbike by a vehicle driven by one officer Aikins of the Mampong Police post last Wednesday afternoon on the Mortuary Road in Accra.
On Sunday (May 7, 2017), the boxer who has been bedridden by the accident was paid a visit by the former Minister of Youth and Sports and Member of Parliament for Odododiodio, Nii Lantey Vanderpuye.

The Odododiodio MP during the visit said he was out of the country at the time of the incident but as soon as he arrived home, he decided to visit Aryee because not only does he hail from his constituency but he has a good reputation.
Mr Vanderpuye presented Aryee’s distraught wife with an undisclosed sum of money to cater for the boxer.
