Boxing promoter Jenkins Alumona has lamented the defeat of Nigerian’s sole boxing athlete at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, Efe Ajagba.
The pugilist on Tuesday lost to Kazakhstan’s world number two Ivan Dychko via a unanimous decision in the quarter-finals of their super heavyweight bout in Rio.
“I was not happy watching our lone boxer lost to an oversized Kazakh. Is it not the same event we used to feature six boxers? The first Olympics I covered as a journalist was Seoul ’88 and boxing was a big deal then,” the CEO of Flykite Promotions stated this in Lagos at a press conference to herald the GOtv Boxing NextGen Search 2 on Wednesday.

“We had just a coach for the boxer in Rio and one white guy who was probably picked from the ringside to join the team. Our boxers once won six medals- three gold and three bronze- at a Commonwealth Games, but now we have just one boxer representing us.”
Meanwhile, about 100 boxers turned up for the GOtv Boxing NextGen Search 2 at the Lagos Boxing Hall of Fame Gym.
The initiative, conceived to raise a new generation of young and talented professional boxers, featured sparring sessions by selected boxers.
In attendance were officials of the Nigerian Boxing Board of Control, Lagos Boxing Hall of Fame, and the sponsors represented by Ms. Efe Obiomah and Johnson Ivoseh, GOtv Public Relations Manager and Marketing Manager respectively.
