Ahead of the 34th edition of Africa Cup of Nations, AFCON 2023 scheduled to commence on Saturday next week in Ivory Coast, popular Nigerian Nollywood actor, Charles Okocha has stated he does not watch the Super Eagles matches.
The movie actor who disclosed this in an interview said he’s not a fan of football rather he preferred combat sports such as Mixed Martial Art, and boxing.
“I never really fancied football, I don’t watch it and don’t really watch Super Eagles either. For me, give me the combat sports, MMA, boxing, those are the sports I enjoy. I like MMA a lot and I try to watch it whenever I can.
Mr Okocah who on December 26 lost a boxing match to singer Portable in Lagos, named two MMA fighters as his favourite athletes.
“I really love Israel Adesanya, he is my kind of guy, flashy, and always delivers. He is great at what he does, and I am sure if he returns, he will reclaim his titles. I also like Kamaru Usman, even though he is going through a difficult spell too right now.”
The 45 years old believes a rematch with Portable is possible.
