The president of the International Boxing Association, Umar Kremlev, cured Dr. Ayeni. A touching story about life and boxing. Dr. Joseph Ayeni has been involved in the development of boxing in Africa for more than 30 years. His contribution is invaluable.
For a long time he was one of the members of the IBA Board of Directors. But due to his illness, Dr. Ayeni left his post. Some time after his retirement, he was hospitalized with a diagnosis of stroke. After unsuccessful attempts to cure Dr. Ayeni, the news about his state of health reached the President of IBA – Umar Kremlev.
Umar Kremlev immediately arranged appropriate treatment for Dr. Ayeni, and then sent him to rehabilitation. Now Dr. Ayeni is at home with his family. He is perfectly healthy and full of energy. “I really believe that IBA is a family. Everyone is priceless, even after retirement. I am grateful to fate that everything happened this way.
Umar takes his place with dignity, and he is truly a man of his word. Thank you, my good friend, for giving me a few more days of my life! Thank you to the entire IBA boxing family for taking care of the older generations,” Dr. Ayeni said. Boxing is a family!
