African Games silver medalist, Efetobor Apochi, has described the just concluded Games as the best in the series of international tournament the Nigerian boxing team has participated in.

He added that he would build on his experience from the Games to enhance his career, just as he commended his colleagues on their efforts in the medals haul.

“The Brazzaville Games are one to remember, because it was the best so far for Nigeria boxing in international tournament. I got silver medal in my category, but my other colleagues had gold and silver as well.

“It was a good team, because we made the country proud and I want to commend those that won gold for their efforts too. I have promised myself I will use the experience I have gathered in this tournament enhance my boxing career,” Apochi said.
