Veteran boxing coach, Joe Mensah has declared that Nigeria currently lacks the right quality to get another world champion in the sport.
Making his views known in a down-to-earth interview, Mensah stated that Nigeria cannot produce a boxer of world dominance status within the country.
Mensah opined that no Nigerian boxer can become world champion without first having to leave the country to better his lot abroad.
He added that this only due to the lack of adequate modern facilities, as well as equipment, sponsorship and exposure the boxer would need as basic foundation for his world title ambitions.
Mensah said: “Nigeria is truly blessed with raw materials in boxing, but that the lack of developmental aids will never allow any home-based pro boxer reach the highest heights of the sport.”
