Former Ghana international, Laryea Kingston has revealed that he would have been a boxer if not for football.

Kingston enjoyed stints with local giants Accra Hearts of Oak and Accra Great Olympics.

He also played in Israel, Russia, Scotland, Saudi Arabia, Holland and South Korea in a career which spanned over two decades.

Speaking in an interview, Kingston said he could have become a boxer if not for football.

“Ooh I was born in Bukom and growing up, we all that Bukom is the home of boxing so I was a naughty boy who was interested in the sport alongside the football," he told Starr Sports.

“So I could have become a boxer if I hadn’t become a footballer," he added.

Laryea made 41 appearances for the black stars scoring six goals between 2002 and 2010.
