WATCH VIDEO: Super Eagles star turns boxer

Nigeria international Ikenna Hilary has tried his hands in boxing, in a hilarious video posted on social media.

The 25-year old, who plays for MFK Skalica in the Slovakian league, posted a video of him on instagram sparring with a boxer in a ring, albeit in a playful manner.

However, the midfielder will need to think long and hard if he really wants to try his hands in the pugilist game professionally, as despite it being just a quip more than a serious boxing match, he was way out of his depth and would have kissed the canvass almost immediately after the bout began if it were to be real.

Hilary was a member of Nigeria’s squad to the 2014 African Nations Championship in South Africa, and started Nigeria’s first two games before suffering a tournament-ending injury.

He has also represented Enugu Rangers and Sunshine Stars in the Nigerian League, and also played for Valletta in the Maltese league, before signing for Skalica.
