The Nigerian boxing team that would be competing for honours at the 2018 Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia are set for a foreign tour.

Head coach of the team Tony Konyegwachi has revealed that he and his boxers are billed to leave the shores of the country this weekend to wrap up preparations in Australia.

Konyegwachi said the boxers, made up of four males and four females, are expected to depart for Australia on Saturday.

“We will be heading to Australia on a training tour,” Konyegwachi said. “All things being equal, we should travel on the 10th of this month.”

This year’s Commonwealth Games will start on April 4 and end on April 15.
