LAGOS STATE BOXING ASSOCIATION MONTHLY BOXING SHOW………Council boss calls for support from corporate organisations.

The Executive Chairman of Yaba LCDA, Hon. AbdulRaheem Olajide Jimoh called on well to do private individuals, philanthropists and  corporate organisations to support boxing in Nigeria. The appeal was made on behalf of the Executive Chairman at the 28th monthly Saturday boxing show organised by Lagos State Boxing hall of fame by Alhaja Sherifat Hassan who represented him.

‘’The promotion and development of boxing sport cannot be left in the hand of government alone if the sport is to be taken to its enviable position in Nigeria, we must therefore see the development of boxing sport as our social responsibility’’, she said.

The one day boxing tournament which took place at the Mobolaji Johnson sports centre (Rowe Park) Yaba was keen and highly competitive. It was aimed at showcasing boxing prowess and talent among youths in Lagos State.

Alhaja Sherifat Hassan congratulated all the participants and charged them not to relent in their training and participation in more boxing competitions to improve their skills.

The competition paraded Joseph Badejo (10yrs), Tunde Sumade (60kg), Israel Akinola (50kg), Shina Balogun (75kg), and Bose Oshinowo (58kg) among others.
