Nigerian boxers will be ready to pick Olympic tickets in France – Coach

National boxing coach Umar Mohammed has stated that Nigerian boxers will be ready to compete for Olympic tickets next year in France when the Olympic qualifying tournament comes alive.

Mohammed speaking in a chat admitted the enormity of the task in picking Olympic slots at the world qualification tournament but stressed that they are also not relenting through competitions like the just held Champion of Champions competition and other programs by the board of the Nigeria Boxing Federation.

“France will be tough but at the same time, we are also not relenting. We are also working hard and trying to psyche the boys to give their best because it’s one thing special to be an Olympian and once you’re an Olympian, you’re like an Ambassador so the boxers are also looking forward to that. The boxers are ready to give their very best to make the country proud always.”
