Despite having beaten my fellow countryman (Wilfredo "Bazooka" Gómez) in a 15 Round War, Azumah Nelson was and will forever remain one of my favorite and most liked Boxing Champions. In an often brutal sport like Boxing, Azumah Nelson brought a sense of class and even elegance into the ring. What a glorious Champion and Human Being.

But, this is not an article strictly about Azumah Nelson. This is about a community, it's people, their culture, nature vs nurture, the fighters it's produced, and - of all things - genetics!

I watched a documentary on this subject. Great stories, though I hear that Bukom is far from a safe place to visit.
