bash alli is not a boxing legend. none of the titles that he has held are from organizations that are recognized. he has

Ogbeni you lost the right to claim national hero when you started stalking the sports ministry and creating public nuisance to the point you have gotten arrested several times.Your outbursts over the years are well documented and have never been nationalist in nature,so take several seats!

Mr Alli, you were supposed to have saved for the rainy day like everyone else. Abi dem no pay you after you won all those your "world tittle" fights? Your own belts are different from those held by Mohammed Ali, Evander Holyfield, Mike Tyson, etc who were paid handsomely after each successful bouts? Did you spend your own winnings on champagne and the high~life, and if yes, why is your being ass~broke any one's problem but yours? I don't get it whenever I see people make this ridiculous claim they are not being taken care of in their twilight years after doing this or that for Nigeria. They gave you a national honour, OON, didn't they? Perhaps one day, Davido or Tu-Face will be bothering us to take care of them because their music put Nigeran on the world map or spotlight. Perhaps someday, footballers like Kanu Nwankwo, Odegbami, Jay Jay Okocha, etc will wake up and start to whine that Nigeria owes them a lifetime pension or something equally ridiculous, all because they had at some time represented the country. If you failed to invest your earnings well in your youth, you are destined for a painful twilight years. You are beginning to be rather annoying with your constant shenanigans. Abeg , go back to your village and be a farmer, if you can no longer afford your rents in Lagos. Your drama don too much.

We never respect our own, AJ was not respected until he did it 4 England & Nigerians started claiming him, this man was always having ds nationalistic instinct even in his hay days calling on govt 4 support, tried bringing some boxing bouts to Nigeria, creating awareness, deals, promo, 2ru boxing on AIT, NTA etc. He's no longer a pugilist but advocating for recognition & giving upcoming boxers good platform for training & better performance, if govt is wrong, let's keep them on their toes, last time he complained of being shoved off @ sports ministry, Dalung later apologised. It kld be your turn 2mro, rather than criticise, encourage & let's support our own
