Nigeria Boxing Federation (NBF) Coach Tony Konyegwachie says the country’s boxers to the African Boxing Championship in Congo-Brazzaville will leave for the event on May the 25th.
The competition would begin on May the 27th.
The coach reveals more more than 30 boxers are currently in a closed camp in Lagos but only 18 will be travelling for the competition.
Konyegwachie says the boxers who emerged tops at the National Open trials in February in Lagos are the ones who have been called to camp.
The championship will serve as the qualifiers for the World Boxing Championship scheduled for August in Germany.
