Adeyemo Ayomide: 4-year-old Nigerian boxer says he wants to become world champion
- Adeyemo Ayomide says his dream is to become boxing champion in the future
- The young Nigerian prodigy became internet sensation after MMA fighter Francis Ngannou posted his video
- In an exclusive interview with Legit.ng, Ayomide was described as a ''quick learner'' who could train for 3 hours non-stop
Abdul-Somod Ayomide Adeyemo may be a young boxing prospect but for the 4-year-old Nigerian prodigy, the sky is the limit after he said that his dream is to become a world champion - a dream which is already manifested in him.
Dubbed as the new Floyd Mayweather because of his incredible punching power and natural boxing talent, everything about Ayomide clearly betrays his age.
The young boy is a delight to watch when he is exhibiting his boxing skills, and no wonder, Cameroonian-French professional fighter Francis Ngannou was left impressed at his rare show of talents.
The 33-year-old MMA fighter could curtail his overt excitement when he shared a short clip of the young Nigerian boy who will turn five in March showing impressive boxing skills alongside his dad.
"I found the next @FloydMayweather his name is Adeyemo Abdul Somod Ayomide. He's from Nigeria and just about to turn 5 on March 23th.
"I spoke with his dad who coaches him and other students. They train outside since they don't have a gym."
Ayomide seems to have finally found the way that leads to his dreamland after the breath-taking discovery from a ghetto where he is living with his parents.
Speaking in an exclusive interview with Legit.ng, the boxing genius spoke broadly about his boxing journey saying he got to love the sport after his father set his feet on the line.
Ayomide, whose father claimed he practised for three hours every Saturday and Sunday of the week, said his dream is to become a world champion.
"( I want to become boxing) champion,'' Ayomide said when asked what does he want to become when he grows up.
Ayomide also said he ''jogs and boxes around'' as part of his training routine, adding that he sometimes trains after school hours.
The 4-year-old future Mayweather was also described as a ''quick learner'' by his dad who doubles as his coach.
"God knows the best but for me, I pray he goes far and should become a champion of his own when he grows up," Adeyemo said.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that Nigeria is a country of a plethora of talents and a recent confirmation to this is Eche Chinonso's breakthrough into the global stage from a local football freestyle prodigy in South-South oil hub Warri.
The 10-year-old freestyler is a product of hard work, and it seems his consistency is paying off faster than his imagination after he made his way into the most-sought Guinness World Record book.
