The Ex International boxer continued “Currently, considering the circumstances around Nigeria Boxing Federation, new board chellenges over World Boxing Championship, the National Camping in preparation for a competition that will start from 26th October to 6th November 2021, is becoming mystery, as it is circulated that the new board met empty account, and might not be able to sponsor Nigeria boxers participation in this 2021 World Boxing Championship at Belgrade”

“The above body language facts, triggered the boxers to scout for their own promoter outside the country, which manifestated and attracted USA firm interest to sponsor all Nigeria Boxing Team to Belgrade for World Boxing Championship, because there is gain in Boxing promotion”

Mazi Okoronkwo said that the above interest from USA firm is seems to be frustrated by some undisclosed Ministry staffs and Nigeria Boxing Federation members in view to cover up the shame of inadequate action from both agency against the good spirits of President Buhari policy in human capacity building .

“They weakness in the part of Ministry Directors and NBF administrators seems to me as if there is some secret or information they are hiding.

Either with ill motive or due to the fear of assertion of not meeting up with the compaign promises to the Boxing Family”

“In the light of the above it is for the above reason that Ex International boxer Mazi Comr Ikechukwu Okoronkwo want the minister or the Ministry of Sports to kindly publish the Ministry Allocation to Nigeria Boxing Federation.
