When it comes to sports, Nigeria is highly respected. It has produced great sportsmen and women who are revered both locally and globally, and one of these men was boxer Richard Ihetu. Boxing was the sport that brought international honor to Nigeria in the 1960s and 1970s.

Richard Ihetu was a force to be reckoned with during his time in the spotlight. He was revered and idolized in Nigeria, and he was said to have iron fists. However, he made what many considered a bad decision by serving as a Lieutenant in the Biafran army during the Nigerian Civil War, training Biafran soldiers.

Richard Ihetu may no longer be alive, but his record remains unbroken. He is still the only Nigerian boxer who has been inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame, which honors boxers, trainers, and other contributors to boxing around the world. Along with Carlos Ortiz, Salvador Sanchez, and Floyd Patterson, Richard Ihetu was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1991, 30 years ago.
