Nigerian cruiserweight prospect, Efetobor Wesley Apochi, says he is perfectly positioned to achieve his dream of ruling the cruiserweight class shortly under the tutelage of former Iron Mike Tyson's trainer, Ronnie Shields.
The 33 years old microbiology graduate of Federal University Technology, Owerri, stated this on his Instagram page on Tuesday, where he uploaded the picture above, which shows him receiving instructions from Shields.
"I am in the right place, at the right time, with the right people . Master Ronnie Shields my hearth is open for learning please teach me sir," stated the Orogun-born who has stopped all 10 opponents within the distance since turning professional in 2017.
Shields, who was named World Boxing Hall of Fame Trainer of The Year in 2002 and inducted into Museum of The Gulf Coast - Sports Legends in 2007, is convinced about Apochi's potential and ability to dominate his weight class like former ward Tyson did in the heavyweight division as a teenager in the 90s.
Apochi, who before turning professional captained the Nigeria boxing team to several tournaments, began his conquest of the cruiserweight division on 30 July 2017, when he knocked out Daniel Mejia Hernandez in round two. He secured his latest knockout win on 14 November 2020, when he stopped America's Joe Jone in 11 two seconds.
