Nigeria international Yakubu Aiyegbeni has revealed a potential switch from football to boxing after showing off his punching skills in the gym.

The 34-year-old who was released by English League One outfit, Coventry City last season flaunted his one-two punching skills as he enjoyed his fitness routine.

Aiyegbeni remains the second highest African goalscorer in the English Premier with 96 goals after Didier Drogba and the third all-time topscorer in the Super Eagles with 21 goals.

But can the Yak make it in the game of boxing?
