RCCG: Pastor Adeboye At Last Discloses His Boxing Superstar


RCCG: Pastor Adeboye At Last Discloses His Boxing Superstar

Pastor Enoch Adeboye, the general overseer of the Redeemed Christian church of God (RCCG), has disclosed who his hero is.

He cited Muhammad Ali, the legendary heavyweight champion, as his boxing idol.

Pastor Adeboye claimed that during Ali’s boxing career, he never let his guard down and that his footwork was impeccable.

He delivered remarks at two special services held at the church’s national headquarters, The Throne of Grace Parish, Ebute-Metta in Lagos, for athletes, youths, businesswomen, and their families, in addition to the monthly thanksgiving service.

According to Adeboye: “In boxing, my coach taught me years ago, I told you I used to be a boxer, I know I don’t look like one now. My coach warned us, “don’t let down your guard that’s your shield but when you go to battle against the opponent make sure you are protecting your head. Keep your guards up.

“The only fellow that we know in boxing at least in those days who never bothered about the shield up there (his head) is because he had his own shield on his legs. It is the fellow known as Muhammad Ali because he has a footwork that is second to none.

“So when you are trying to get him, he doesn’t bother, he is not wasting his time shielding because he knows he can float like a butterfly and sting like a bee.

“If you know anything about boxing, he happens to be my hero. You will not find a scratch on his face, he doesn’t allow the enemy to get close to his face at all by using his legs. Now, if you are not a Muhammad Ali, keep on your shield. That’s for the sportsmen.”

Pastor Adeboye is an accomplished sportsman himself.

Live with Purpose, Love with Passion. Remember to be happy

One ❤️❤️❤️
