Nigeria will not sponsor Bash Ali’s proposed boxing fight- Sports Minister

Bolaji Abdullahi

The Sports Minister said this on Monday in Abuja.

The National Sports Commission has rejected boxer, Bash Ali’s appeal for funds to prosecute his proposed world title fight, the chairman of the commission, Bolaji Abdullahi, has said.

Mr. Abdullahi, who is also Nigeria’s Sports Minister, stated this on Monday in Abuja.

Bash Ali has asked the federal government to sponsor a title fight that will make him the oldest boxer ever; a move that has seen him storm different public offices and a political party secretariat.

The minister also said his ministry will collaborate with anti-corruption agencies and the justice ministry to check match fixing in the Nigerian football league.
