Awuku who is currently WBO number 11th ranked according to the latest September rankings released by the august body which holds their silver anniversary convention at the end of October in Florida, now gets ever closer to realizing the world championship dream as he gets the opportunity to train under the tutelage of the best trainers with best facilities in the US.
He has been invited by Don Chargin Productions to Fairfield, California spanning mid-October to November for training assessment with the view to discussing future endeavours and possible signing of professional contract.
