RCCG: Pastor Adeboye finally reveals his boxing hero

The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian church of God, RCCG, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has revealed his hero.

 

He named legandary heavyweight champion, Muhammad Ali as his hero in boxing.

 

Pastor Adeboye said Ali never let his guard down during his boxing days, adding that his foot work was next to none.

 

He spoke at the church monthly thanksgiving service and special service for athletes, youths, businessmen and woman and their families at the church national headquarters, The Throne of Grace Parish, Ebute-Metta in Lagos.

 

According to Adeboye: “In boxing, my coach taught me years ago, I told you I used to be a boxer, I know I don’t look like one now. My coach warned us, “don’t let down your guard that’s your shield but when you go to battle against the opponent make sure you are protecting your head. Keep your guards up.

“The only fellow that we know in boxing at least in those days who never bothered about the shield up there (his head) is because he had his own shield on his legs. It is the fellow known as Muhammad Ali because he has a footwork that is second to none.

“So when you are trying to get him, he doesn’t bother, he is not wasting his time shielding because he knows he can float like a butterfly and sting like a bee.

“If you know anything about boxing, he happens to be my hero. You will not find a scratch on his face, he doesn’t allow the enemy to get close to his face at all by using his legs. Now, if you are not a Muhammad Ali, keep on your shield. That’s for the sportsmen.”
