“One of the problems boxing in the country is that we don’t have good coaches and trainers. The coaches we have now don’t have enough experience to handle our boxers. Though our pugilists may have the potentials to go places in the game, the technical capabilities of their coaches could not bring the best out of them,” Ayeni said.
