Boxing in Nigeria keeps taking hit after hit at professional and amateur level.
If the discuss is not poor welfare and lack of competitions then it is poor coaching and infrastructure.
Recently at the National Youth Games in Ilorin, the boxing event could not hold because officials and Coaches considered the ring pathetic, even at that level.
According to gongnews.net the boxing event could not hold becasue the only available ring “is not only substandard but also too small for the tournament.”
Chairman Organising Committee Dr. Ademola Are said the committee has released money to bring a better one from Lagos.
‘When we came to Ilorin we were told that the boxing ring need to be replaced and we approved the sum of ₦100,000 to get a better one from Lagos which will arrive later Tuesday and hopefully the game will start Wednesday.’
