In an interview with PUNCH, the Nollywood star disclosed he was once a boxer and added that he quit boxing when a Delta boy battered his face in a championship fight.

He said:

“I would have been a boxer. I used to be a boxer. I was doing well until I went for a championship in Delta State. The boy I fought with was an idiot; he gave me a beating I would never forget. That boy changed my face and made me hate anything that had to do with gloves.
After the fight, I looked in the mirror and I could not even recognize myself. I could see with only one eye for sometime due to the punches he dealt me. That was the incident that made me quit boxing.”
