Nigerian-born US-based boxer, Bola Osundairo, has expressed his desire to represent his country, Nigeria, at international boxing events, instead of the United States of America.

According to him, “I want to represent my country, Nigeria, because of the love and passion I have for it; to motivate others, especially up-coming sports men to be patriotic. Nigeria is endowed with great talents.
