Nigeria’s Odion Ighalo Spotted Boxing Punching-Bag In Training Like One Preparing for Heavy weight boxing bout

Published on: 17 March 2021

Nigerian footballer Odion Ighalo was spotted in a gym sweating-it-out with the punching-bag in a bid to remain fit for his new club Al Shabab of Saudi Arabia.

The former Super Eagles striker completed his loan deal at Premier League giants Manchester United in February and left due to lack of active playing time.

Ighalo joined Saudi Arabian side Al Shabab on a permanent deal in February, as the Saudi Arabian side took to their official social media page to confirm the arrival of the Nigerian football legend who won golden boot at 2019 African Cup of Nations.

Al Shabab stated clearly that the former Osun United striker signed a two and a half year deal with them with option of him increasing the deal subsequently.

He has since settled at the club having recently posted a picture of himself clad white attire with his head covered like a Muslim who just completed Holy Pilgrimage.

Since the former Watford man arrived, he has been impressive for his new club who are currently on top of the Pro League standings.

He grabbed his first brace for the club in their win over Damac. And he was seen with team-mates in the gym sweating it out just to remain in shape as they set their eyes on the title.

Footage of the session shows Ighalo hitting the punching-bag hard, as the Nigerian is desperate to win laurels at the club.
