I quit boxing when a Delta boy battered my face –Mr Ibu

John Okafor, aka Mr Ibu, is a popular actor who is loved by many. His comical roles give many reasons to smile.

In his interview with TOFARATI IGE, when asked “If you weren’t an actor, what other profession would you have chosen?

His reply;

You’re looking for trouble now. Anyway, 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.
