The Secretary-General of the Nigeria Boxing Federation (NBF), Dapo Akinyele, said on Sunday that six boxers are set to fight for places at the forthcoming Paris 2024 Games' second Window qualification tournament in Bangkok, the capital of Thailand.

Elite boxers from across the globe will converge in Bangkok from May 23 to June 3, 2024, for intense battles for Paris Olympics spots.

Akinyele stated that the Federation was focusing on female pugilists because they stand a better chance of punching their way into the French capital, Paris, for the Games.

"If all goes as planned, we shall take four female and two male boxers to Bangkok, but if we have to reduce the overall figure to five, we shall present three female and two male pugilists," the seasoned administrator stated.

"We have to project and focus on our strength, and I'm sure we shall cement our place at the 2024 Olympic Games," he added.

Nigeria will fight for honors in the 50, 57, 66, 75, and +92kg categories.

At the first Window of the Olympic Games Boxing Qualifiers in Italy, no Africans out of the sixty-seven that competed secured an Olympic slot.

Athletics, Badminton, Female Basketball, Female Football, Table Tennis, Weightlifting, and Wrestling are some of the sports that Team Nigeria will be represented in at the Paris Games.
