This is because of where I was schooling. Our school was close to a boxing gym around Adedenkpo. So usually after school, we will go and play football.It is during this time that these boxers will come and train, so when they come, we play a game against them, and they will tell us we won so they want a rematch with us in boxing. So we also have to play their sports which is boxing.So in those times, I was also interested in it. So I was training for some time and you know where I grew up it is all about boxing. Therefore every Sunday morning, I will just go put on my gloves and fight against whichever opponent on the streets.So yes, I was a little bit interested in boxing but I think my destiny is football.”last_img read more
