“I went from millionaire to zeronaire” – Former boxer, Bash Ali cries out

Former boxer, Bash Ali has opened up on how he went from being a millionaire to a man with nothing after many years of being a professional boxer.

On Tuesday, amid the festivities surrounding his 68th birthday, the legendary former World Boxing Federation Cruiserweight Champion, Bash Ali, took center stage online where he revealed the depths of his steadfast commitment to fighting corruption.

Ali skillfully detailed the hardships he faced over 17 years in his unwavering quest to organize the Guinness World Record Boxing Championship Fight in Nigeria in his Facebook post on Tuesday.

He underlined his unwavering dedication to integrity with unwavering resolve, firmly refusing to yield to the widespread impact of unethical activities.

The former World Boxing Federation Champion revealed that his financial situation had drastically declined as a result of his principled attitude, taking him from being a billionaire in dollars to almost bankrupt in Naira.

He wrote;

“Today Tuesday, February 27 is my birthday. 

For 17 years I struggled in vain to host in my country, Nigeria my Guinness World Record Boxing Championship Fight because I was bold to say no to corruption in sport in particular and in Nigeria in general.

“In 17 years, I went from being a millionaire in dollars to a zeronaire in naira.

“In 17 years, I was beaten and injured that I had to be admitted twice and treated at the National Hospital in Abuja.

“In 17 years, I was detained eight times at various police stations in Abuja. In 17 years, I was once detained at Kuje Prison for 43 days.

“I went through hell in my country not because I am a criminal but because I say no to corruption. Despite juicy offers to fight outside of Nigeria, I never gave up on my dream to fight in Nigeria and I never gave up on Nigeria.

“Today, our dream is finally becoming a reality and because I am an extraordinary human being, I am going to fight until I am 70 years old, retire young and healthy with a lot of money and then go on to be the President of Nigeria. This is my ultimate goal so mark my words.

“Thank u very much for always being by my side. I appreciate you, always. Happy birthday The Great Bash Ali.”
