The ceremonial weigh-in of boxers at the 11th All Africa Games earlier slated for Wednesday has been put off.
This follows what organisers termed as unreadiness of the facilities for the event.
A Team Nigeria official, Mrs Tayo Orewme, confirmed to completesportsnigeria.com that the shift followed realization by the organising committee that the rings, amongst other facilities, are yet to be mounted by the organisers.
“The weigh-in ceremony did not hold after all. The rings are not yet mounted amongst other facilities.
“Maybe, the exercise will now hold on Friday,” the Lagos Liaison officer of the National Sports Commission told completesportsnigeria.com at the COJA Headquarters in Diata, Brazzaville, on Wednesday.
