Jerry Okorodudu has assessed the Nigerian pugilists who romped into the quarter finals of the on going Commonwealth Games and predicted that Nigerian boxing was on its way back to reckoning.
Okorodudu should know because he had been at the roped square and tasted bitter punches and also delivered devastating punches to his opponents on his way to many podium appearances.
The ex Olympian after watching the Nigerian pugilists who have fought seven times and won five said that the current Pugilists have shown signs that the once great act of self defence in which Nigeria excelled before kissing the canvass was on its way back to greatness.
‘’See Efe Ajagba in the Super Heavyweight. He was amazing and is as good as gold. He knocked off his opponents with ease and I don’t see anything that will stop him from winning gold”, the once glamour boxer who got christened ‘’jerry curled Jerry” because of his curly hair said. The hairs are no more but Jerry is still a force to be reckoned with in Boxing.
‘’There is also Efetobori Fictory. This one has the reflex and great movement on the canvass. He was so good in his last fight against an Aussie that Director General of the National Sports Commission, Hon. Gbenga Elegbeleye sprayed Dollars on him. He dismissed the Australian in 15 seconds that the crowd applauded sporadically.
‘’I’m happy that Nigerian boxers are coming back. This is the sport that gave good name to the country. We’re back”, Okorodudu drunk in ecstasy said.
