Gordons

Godwin Komone, the favored Nigerian comedian who’s popularly known as Gordons has talked about himself and his love for sports activities actions.

He talks regarding the poor top quality of the current Super Eagles crew, his love for Adesanya and additional on this interview with PETER AKINBO

Do you’ll have any historic previous in sports activities actions?

I was a strong soccer lover, nevertheless I grew up within the type of family the place sport was not impressed. My dad anticipated me to go to highschool and develop to be a doctor or a lawyer; so, I wasn’t impressed inside the area of sports activities actions nevertheless I beloved soccer tons and I can nonetheless play soccer fully.

Can you inform us additional on why you couldn’t pursue a occupation in soccer?

In the instances the place sports activities actions was being developed in our area, I didn’t have any kind of encouragement to pursue sports activities actions. I didn’t even know that sports activities actions was worthwhile because of the mindset was that in case you could have been ever going to be a extremely worthwhile and notable particular person in life, you wanted to be each a lawyer or an engineer.

Did you be a part of your school soccer crew?

I wasn’t allowed the least bit, and the parental concern was there so I didn’t play for the crew nevertheless I was always attending video video games.

What’s your favourite sport to have a look at?

UFC

Who is your favourite fighter inside the UFC and why?

Isreal Adesanya. Apart from the reality that he’s a Nigerian like me, I merely love his provide, his confidence, he fights tactically, he’s very knowledgeable, very determined and extreme about what he’s doing. And the standing of our nation outside the nation isn’t a superb one, individuals are dealt with decrease than tons others, so if you find yourself privileged to see a Nigerian who’s ‘repping’ appropriately and by no means lowering corners and making his money, you should be proud.

These people don’t wishes us Africans going the place they have to go because of they solely contemplate that we’re alleged to battle and being a Nigerian and dominating the middleweight overcoming loads of challenges and with the work he has put in to get to the place he’s so whether or not or not he has a battle or not, I remember to have a look at him on all his platforms.

Did you watch his closing battle in opposition to Jared Cannonier?

Yes, I did. 

Lots of individuals acknowledged he didn’t ship after elevating expectations, that it was a boring battle, what do you suppose?

Everybody who’s inside the UFC might want to have been teaching alongside together with his life because of the UFC isn’t a spot for laughter. It’s like a do-or-die environment, and for someone coming to battle Israel Adesanya, do you suppose the person didn’t put collectively?

That man gave his best battle, he didn’t win with a knockout nevertheless in that ring, these people put collectively for knockouts. This is Mixed Martial Arts; you’re each punching or kicking, and likewise you’ll try and win each by knockout or submission or elements. These fighters are educated.

 

What is the excellence between Israel’s battle and that of (Floyd) Mayweather and (Manny )Pacquiao? Did Mayweather knock him out? People ought to understand that boxing or MMA isn’t easy the least bit, I do comedy and I don’t go on stage boasting that I’ll kill it, I don’t know the viewers that I’ll face nevertheless I’m going prepared for every eventuality. If now we’ve a free journey, optimistic, and customarily, we battle on stage, so I consider everyone criticising Israel should do one different rethink because of he gave his best.

And for him ‘boasting’, that’s the odd propaganda, even as soon as we comedians are about to do a gift, we make all of the equivalent noise, ‘we will destroy it’ however it’s not the entire reveals that end like that. Do they suppose Cannonier bought right here to be overwhelmed? So, all that’s merely propaganda, even in church buildings, after they print banner of ‘lame will walk and blind will see’, what variety of of these miracles have they accomplished?

Adesanya and (Kamaru) Usman have repeatedly acknowledged they don’t want to battle each other saying they’re ‘brothers’, and in that type of enterprise, do you suppose they’ll closing?

One points Nigerians get outside this nation is that they the entire sudden realise that they’re brothers. I come from the Urhobo tribe in Niger Delta and one other tribes don’t agree with us however after I meet these totally different tribes overseas, they cope with me like family nevertheless as quickly as we come once more to Delta, they the entire sudden stop chatting with me.

It is gloomy that it’s solely when Nigerians get out of this nation and have a stage of prosperity and security that they perceive that Nigerians are their family. I consider two of them can compete though, it’s a sport, not wrestle, and the upper particular person should win.

Who do you suppose is one of the best Nigerian footballer ever and why?

Jay-Jay Okocha. I consider the keenness with which he performs soccer would make anyone want to play soccer. He loves soccer so I consider he’s merely the best.

What do you suppose of the current Super Eagles?

Honestly, I do not know them. I’ve stopped watching Nigerian soccer given that days of Okocha and I don’t understand them totally. I don’t want to watch one thing and be feeling despair.

Are you saying they’re a depressing crew to have a look at?

No, they’re not. I’m merely saying that they’ll up their recreation a bit to permit them to attract our consideration. You will agree with me that in the midst of the time of Okocha, we’ve been all glued to our TV screens to have a look at the Super Eagles play however it’s been a really very long time I watched them.

Would you encourage your kids in sports activities actions?

I do not know the way forward for my kids and I is likely to be glad if none of my kids pursued leisure. This enterprise is just not what it was as soon as. If any of them is nice in sports activities actions, I’ll wholeheartedly encourage my kids. I’m not a father which will discourage them, irrespective of they want to do, I’ll help.
