The Nigerian Boxing Board of Control (NBB of C) has described as immense the support given to Nigerian boxing by Pay TV Company, GOtv, through its Boxing Night and Boxing NextGen Search.

Speaking in Lagos yesterday, NBB of C Secretary General, Remi Aboderin said the Pay TV company’s decision to introduce GOtv Boxing NextGen Search, an initiative for unearthing young and talented boxers ready to turn professional, had addressed the scarcity of good professional boxers in the country.

“GOtv Boxing NextGen Search has addressed the problem of ageing boxers by replacing them with young and vibrant ones. Every young boxer should take advantage of the initiative. The fourth edition is almost here, and I advise every young boxer to enroll,” he stated.

GOtv Boxing NextGen Search will hold in Abeokuta from September between 13 and 15. The programme, organised by Flykite Productions, will see boxers, aged between 18 and 25, take part in sparring sessions and assessed by the best boxing coaches, who will select those adjudged to be the best.

It will hold at Dunkin Pepper Gym inside the MKO International Stadium Complex. Boxers selected by the coaches will have their licences paid for by the sponsors, undergo free medical examination and may have the opportunity of fighting in coming editions of GOtv Boxing Night.
