“The ultimate plan is to find the next Mayweather. I want to work with kids, I will come over to meet and talk to make sure we are all on the same page, and slowly start building these fighters.

“We just want to help. It’s all about giving back, helping the youths and the young generation coming up. I want to build a boxing camp for the kids. Different American trainers will come over and work with them.

“There are so many talents in the sports world over there in the United States, and Africa is dominating in the U.S now. There are so many hidden talents, so many skills, so we want the world to see these skills.

“We don’t want it to be hidden, like I was able to display my skills and talents to the world, here I am today. I want to build an academy just for the children to grow,” Mayweather said.15395011 img20220509wa0036 jpeg05aae51981f32071d8f327d985659f35

In response, Amaechi told the boxing great that he believes the Federal Government would support any initiative to harness more talents in the country, which would also create jobs.

It could be recalled that during his tenure as Governor of Rivers State, Rt Hon Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi prioritized sports developments, with projects that included the construction of the Adokie Amiesimaka Stadium Port Harcourt.
