Actor, John Okafor, better known
as Mr. Ibu, has revealed why he
ended his boxing career to become
an actor.
In an interview with the Punch,
the Nollywood star disclosed he
was once a boxer. He said he quit
boxing when a Delta boy battered
his face in a championship fight.
He said, ‘’I would have been
a boxer. I used to be a boxer. I
was doing well until I went for a
championship in Delta State.
‘’The boy I fought with was an
idiot; he gave me a beating I would
never forget. That boy changed my
face and made me hate anything
that had to do with gloves.
‘’After the fight, I looked in
the mirror and I could not even
recognise myself. I could see with
only one eye for sometime due to
the punches he dealt me. That was
the incident that made me quit
boxing.’’
